Oops... I think I'm confusing thru-the-web editing tools with client side tools. see tinyMCE module for drupal.
The features of the systems that people build with PHP cannot be deined. We're pretty committed to drupal for this breadcrumbs blog.
I doubt I'll be doing much hacking on it, though. In part that's a good thing... hacking on your publishing infrastructure can be a real distraction. It's best to be a plain old customer some times.
tags pending: dev? coding? software engineering? architecture?
... skipping rocks.
This post is prompted by a desire to test the flickr posting mechanism, but I do love that photo. Mary took it at the CSAIL offsite meeting. Walking in the park is another of my favorite moments from that trip.
The posting mechanism has a glitch... the body text got mangled with the title. I had to clean it up manually.
After ryanlee's cool hack to repost wordpress items to drupal via the blogger API, Eric M. asked if Ryan had seen SIOC. I took a quick look; I can't find an example that has all the details like the xmlns declarations worked out.
I'd like to...
- integrate my delicious bookmarks into this blog, at least selected tags. I'm not alone; there's a module.
- tag these posts with RelTag
- expunge "blog" from this site. "journal" is just fine, no?
This post should be tagged "navel gazing" or "meta" or the like. Prolly shouldn't go on the front DIG page done: tagged drupal; unchecked the "promote to top" option.
update: another note on integrating del.icio.us stuff
Of course, if our policy aware web project gets anywhere near where we hope to go, it should provide enforcement for very flexible policies.
What's a good comment policy?
- You can comment if your homepage has pagerank>K
- You can comment if any of my friends say you can comment
Hmm... I'd like something a bit more scalable. I wonder if the advogato trust metric can be distributed. I seem to remember some distributed time protocols that were robust up to massive collusion, but I looked hard for them in citeseer and couldn't find them.
postscript: Karl notes Russell Beattie on Anonymity. I'm not sure I agree that most people are anonymous by default. I think that by default, people identify themselves whent they speak, but they don't speak to very many people. Until the last few generations, most people lived out their whole lives in the same city and never spoke to anyone outside that city.
The new DIG blog is setup and ready for new accounts; if you wish to publish a blog directly through the Drupal setup or indirectly through a Blogger API-friendly client (such as WordPress), please contact Ryan for a new account and specify your desired username.
Edit: Well, if you're part of DIG.
