Hey all. For legal reasons, TumblrChat cannot have ‘Tumblr’ in the name. Since it is a chat strictly designed for Tumblr, I’m currently at a loss of what else to call it. Does anyone have any creative suggestions for a rename? Feel free to send suggestions to the Ask Box.
The official Instagram API was released yesterday morning and it has some pretty interesting stuff. They are utilizing the “latest” in API design - realtime w/ Pubsubhubbub / web hook, JSON only and OAuth 2. But the most interesting part is not the technical decisions of how to expose the data via the API but what functionality they exposed. All the writes/updates are around tags, comments, likes, and social graph but nothing for photo upload - all of that will still happen within the iPhone app. It will be interesting to see what people build with it - particularly intrigued by the realtime Pubsubhubbub portion.
Only 804 Million more posts. I thank our digital overlords for 64bit machines.
If you let some 3rd party mediate your relationship to your users, you are setting yourself up for disaster.
“Kris Gregorian is “The Koala” editor behind the controversial picture and article. Late Wednesday, Gregorian returned a phone call from 10News and refused to do an interview unless 10News gave him a case of beer. 10News did not, because it is 10News’ policy not to pay for interviews, so Gregorian ended the conversation.”
As the verb shows, the construction here expresses a plural number, not an amount; so use “fewer,” not “less.”
