likes

One observation from the Knoxville testers has been the ambiguous meaning of a “like.” Clicking that button to presumably express approval on a story has different import depending on your relationship to the author.

Thats the biggest reason why I don't like stuff on Facebook. Its just too complicated with the different sorts of people I have as friends on facebook.

iTunes

I've been reading a lot of posts from people complaining about apple software. A lot of the complaints center around iTunes, and the issues it brings up. To me the solution is simple. iTunes is doing too much, and the functionality should be split up. There should be a separate application for syncing with mobile devices, and a separate application for the store. Quicktime already exists as a brand for video, add all the video player functionality there. iTunes started out as a music player, it should remain as such.

Blogging evolution

I really like what Dave Winer has evolved his blog over time. Its not just written posts any more. There are now tabs for various forms of media, pictures and feeds. There is even an RSS feed aggregator in a tab. Will the other larger blogging platforms, such as blogger, or tumblr pick it up? I doubt it. Wordpress might.

In the mean time, I have to get back into the habit of writing about what I'm working on.
