                          Verifying Constituency: A Sovrin Use Case

                          Verified constituency is a simple, but powerful means of creating a collective voice that is difficult to ignore or dismiss.

                          Living in a Silo Can Be Dangerous

                          When you live in a silo, asphyxiation is a real danger. Twitter had the temerity to actually take advantage of its one-sided terms and conditions and now people are mad. Don't get mad; change the game. Protocol gives us the tools to fight back. The only way to protect yourself is to move to a decentralized architecture.

                          Hover Me - A Social Media Dashboard

                          Last December, a developer on the Kynetx platform, Ed Orcutt, released an application that used the Qwerly API to show people the other social networks that Twitter users were on. Called HoverMe, the application pops up a hover card when you put your cursor over a name or picture on Twitter or Facebook like so: The app surprised us all because it got a little press love and took off with over 30,000 installs in just 3 days. Since it's original release, Ed has enhanced HoverMe to add PeerIndex scores and Empire Avenue value. Last week I was sitting

                          Leave the Services Clients to the Services and Build Something Really Interesting

                          Twitter's Ryan Sarver made news when he posted a message that asked developers to stop developing Twitter clients. There's been a lot of talk about this and certainly, if you're the developer of a Twitter client this isn't good news. Still, it seems like a natural idea to me. The providers of services like Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare are likely going to be the dominant providers of clients for those services. But clients for a single service are the least interesting clients and provide pretty low value to their users. Where the real value lies, and something the services

                          New Twitter Spam Tactic?

                          Today, someone (or some bot) tweeted something that had nothing to do with me, but had my Twitter handle in it. The interesting thing about this is that the URL shortener is smart and goes to Amazon when you first click it, but there after goes to another site (something about Tatoos for Geeks--not sure what the point is). If you just go to the URL shortener's base URL, you get redirected to bit.ly. This seems to be a new tactic to keep Twitter from finding spam: disguise the links so that Twitter doesn't see the real target.

                          Twitter and the OAuthalypse: A RESTful Misfire

                          Yesterday was the OAuthalypse--the day when Twitter stopped accepting HTTP Basic authorizations on theis API. I had a few apps break--like almost everything I've done with Twitter. To get them back working I'll have to spend some time on each moving them over to OAuth. For some that won't be hard--they're already using a library that supports OAuth. For others it will be more work. All of them are single user apps (like the UtahPolitics retweeter and so will use the OAuth single token pattern. The reason for moving to OAuth is so that apps won't need to ask

                          Branding and Indispensability vs Reputation and Influence

                          I was asked by Cyd Tetro to sit on a panel today at the Women Tech Council along with Sue Johnson. The topic is "personal branding, indispensability, and networking." I'm planning to be a little contrarian. First off, I agree with Doc that the idea of branding is dehumanizing. Fine for corporations, not necessary for people. We already have an identity and we have our humanity. Those are the things that we need to emphasize, not the idea of personal brand. Second, as the saying goes, "the graveyards are full of indispensable people." The idea isn't

                          Twitter, Avatars, and Influence

                          People use Twitter for lots of different purposes. I use Twitter to keep up with friends, find new things on the 'Net that I wouldn't otherwise see, and to tell others what I'm thinking. Another word for that final purpose is "influence." To a certain extent almost everyone on Twitter is trying to use it to influence something--some more blatantly than others. If you've been on Twitter for any time you'll notice that people have different behaviors with respect to their avatars. Some put them up and never change them. Some put up their own face.

                          Using Social Media Badly: Novatel as a Case Study

                          Image by Old Shoe Woman via Flickr I'm a pretty happy MiFi owner, but I've had a problem with my battery and would like to buy a new one. They're not easy to find, so I was plesantly surprised to find that Novatel (the maker of the MiFi) had a Twitter account: @MyLifeMyWayMiFi. I followed and when I saw some activity, replied to @MyLifeMyWayMiFi asking where spare batteries could be purchased. Nothing. I tried a few more time when I saw activity and have never received any kind of reply. It's clear that Novatel is using it's Twitter account

                          Using OAuth to Access Twitter from KRL

                          The latest build (Build 391) of the Kynetx Rule Language (KRL) includes support for accessing Twitter data intrinsically within the language. Integrating interesting data with KRL is an important part of what makes the language so useful for building cross-site applications that mash-up data and user interactions. But what's really interesting about this release is that we're using OAuth to access the Twitter API and have built primitives into the language for dealing with the Twitter OAuth interaction to save developers from doing it. Not only are we making it easy for developers to write apps that use Twitter,

                          Why Use the Kynetx Rule Language Instead of Javascript?

                          Last Friday I blogged about using Kynetx to put my latest tweet on my blog. Joseph Scott asked "Why would this be better than just using Javascript plus the Twitter API to show your last tweet?" The answer is a little longer than I wanted to put in a comment, so here goes. KRL has a number of advantages over Javascript talking to the Twitter API: KRL, the Kynetx Rule Language, provides a closer abstraction to the task than Javascript does as a general purpose language. This is, of course, something that could be subject to debate--if you're already

                          My Last Tweet...Powered by Kynetx

                          I've had a box on the right-hand side of this blog showing my lastest tweet. Today I realized that it would be better powered by Kynetx. I took a few minutes and wrote one up. You can see it on the right-hand side of this page. To do this, I used the Twitter API to grab my tweets and then replaced an empty div on my page with it. Since Kynetx rules run each time the page is loaded, it's constantly updated. The first step was to declare a datasource to read my tweets: global { datasource tweets I've

                          What are People Tweeting About this Site?

                          One of the ways that you can use Kynetx rules is to create powerful bookmarklets that modify the current page in some way. In order to demonstrate this, I asked our intern, Jessie Morris, to create a ruleset that displays the last 10 tweets about a Web site. We call this little App "Sweetter." Sam has already built a feature for generating a bookmarket that is tied to a ruleset into Kynetx AppBuilder, our ruleset building tool. So once you've got a ruleset, creating a bookmarklet is as easy as pushing a button. To see it in action, just

                          Twitter Honeypots

                          Image by windley via Flickr When I was building the twitterbot for @utahpolitics, I set up a test account: @uptesting that I don't use for anything. It has 38 followers even though it's just test messages and hasn't had a tweet since early January. The followes are mostly a good list of Twitter spammers or people who follow a lot of people to get a lot of followers. Setting up a bunch of honeypots on Twitter and then adding anyone who follows them to a blakclist wouldn't be such a bad idea. Someone's probably already built it.

                          Image via CrunchBase I'm trying an experiment with this year's Utah legislative session, I've created a Twitter account (@utahpolitics) and set up an autofollower on it (hat tip to @jesse). I wanted to also set up a retweeting twitterbot so that people following the account would see what anyone else following the account said when it contained certain keywords. The world probably doesn't need yet another retweeter, but I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for and decided to build one for a few reasons: I like to program I want to understand the Twitter API more deeply

                          Asymmetric Follow a Core Web 2.0 Pattern

                          James Governor wrote a post on asymmetrical follow as a core Web 2.0 pattern earlier this month. I ran across it when JP referenced it in his quest to decide if Twitter is a publishing platform. James uses this metaphor to explain asymmetric follow: You're sitting at the back of the room in a large auditorium. There is a guy up front, and he is having a conversation with the people in the front few rows. You can't hear them quite so well, although it seems like you can tune into them if you listen carefully.

                          Image by flibblesan One of the things I love about going to conferences is that there are usually a lot of Mac users there and that means getting the goods on what new Mac software people are using. My last trips to Defrag and IIW were good in that regard as I found out about a few new things that I'm enjoying. The first, and probably the most useful, is Snackr.

                          TwitterCards: Grabbing Contact Data from Twitter with Microformats

                          This morning @dberlind and @kevinmarks were tweeting about microformats in Twitter. David was positing something he called the "TwitterCard." Kevin points out that unbeknownest to me, and I suspect almost everyone else, Twitter supports the hCard microformat. If you'd like to make use of them, you need a client that supports microformats. Fortunately for Firefox users, Mike Kaply has an addon that does just that called Operator. Simply install operator, go to a Twitter page and use the handy pulldown menus under the toolbar to export any hCard data as a vCard. The OS X picked

                          Om Malik writes about the recent terrorist attacks in India and the torrent of information on Twitter. He says: Despite the tremendous volume of information --- and its immediacy --- coming from Mumbai via Twitter, getting context about the situation has been a struggle. While a few people have been tweeting firsthand accounts, much of the information has been re-tweets or just rambling, reaction-based tweets. Maybe I was overcome with emotion, but the sheer volume of tweets and lack of clarity only fed my frustration with Twitter. (I'm sure it's the same kind of frustration people

                          EFail, not EMail

                          Jeff Atwood has a longish post on the problems with email. Of course, the biggest problem with email is there's way too much of it. I used to try to respond to each (non-spam) email I got but now I can't keep up. Unfortunately, I can't let each email commit me to spend time. Jeff references Tantek ?elik's excellent post on the subject and gives three pieces of advice: Channel that private email effort into a public outlet.

                          Tweetdeck Rocks

                          Yesterday I found out about Tweetdeck, an Adobe Air application for managing twitter. Tweetdeck is much more than a way for watching your tweet stream and posting tweets. Tweetdeck is a dashboard for Twitter. You can create separate panels, for example, to follow searches. Yesterday I was using it to follow three different searches related to Internet Identity Workshop and seeing tweets from all kinds of people who I don't normally follow. Of course, I found more people to follow! Related articles via ZemantaLooking for Mr. Goodtweet: How to Pick Up Followers on TwitterTweetDeck Offers Features Twitter Lacks [Featured

Of the two, twInfluence seems the most comprehensive, but I'm not sure what either of them mean. If I were in the top 100 on either though I'd be bragging about it. Just because.

                          Yammering Away About Work

                          A few weeks ago Yammer walked away with top honors at TechCrunch 50. I'd been hearing about it, so last week I went over and signed up. I'm really liking it. Yammer is Twitter for work. The first person to sign up using an email from a particular domain establishes a sandbox for yammers from people in that domain. Since I signed up using my kynetx.com email, Yammer automatically created a domain for Kynetx and made me an administrator. Very low friction. I sent out invites and soon had the whole Kynetx gang yammering away about work. Only people

With the rise or things like Twitter, of course, you can at least tell your friends what you're thinking. But for the September 26th debate, you'll be able to have your comments on screen with the debate itself. Current TV and Twitter have teamed up to sponsor something called "Hack the Debate."

                          Namespaces, Twitter, Identi.ca, and Federation

                          A few days ago I wrote about federating with Identi.ca. Yesterday I had a great chat with Craig Burton about that whole idea. He's not buying. I asked him to respond on his blog so we could move the discussion online. My argument was essentially that moving Twitter-like functionality onto a distributed platform was a good thing and likely to make more people comfortable with the idea of building out additional functionality in the micro-blogging space (what people have started to call the space that Twitter is in). The fly in the ointment, from my perspective, is the additional

                          Federating with Identi.ca

                          Twitter's performance problems over the past few months have made people skittish about basing businesses, even ideas, on it. The problem isn't just performance problems, however. When one company controls what many come to consider a key piece of infrastructure (who'd have thought they'd read that about Twitter 18 months ago), it creates a brittle situation. What if they can't perform or go out of business? Enter Identi.ca, a Twitter-like site that's based on open source software called laconi.ca. The key problem with something like Identi.ca is that if it's just another centralized solution, nothing's changed. Laconi.ca has the

                          I got a message from Facebook today saying that someone had friended me. I realized I didn't care. Not that I didn't care about the person who'd friended me--I didn't care about Facebook. It's been weeks since I was there and my life is pretty much the same. I think the reason is Twitter. Twitter is much more social, much more interesting, and the plethora of clients (including any mobile phone with SMS) means that I don't have to remember to go check the site to see what's happening. Twitterific displays a solid stream of the 140 character thoughts

He didn't know he was opening up a can of worms. Steve Gillmor refuses to use the @. He rightly points out that the Web client moves those out of the tweetflow and that while thick-clients do a better job of that (I use Twitterific, for example), that's not a solution for people who want to use the iPhone or other mobile platforms.

                          Thinking About Twitter

                          JP Rangaswami likes Twitter. What's even better is his analysis of why it adds value to our online life despite its apparent deficiencies (e.g. 140 character limit). Before you dismiss this as just another Twitter fanboy, recall that JP knows a thing or two about enterprise IT. JP hits the nail on the head by discussing Twitter as a pub-sub platform. One of the key features of a pub-sub system is user (client) control of messaging. I choose who I follow on Twitter and thus the messages I receive. I've stopped following people because their tweets weren't very relevant

                          Dave Winer's Club140.org gives us a good example of how hard it is to protect data. For those of you not following along at home, Dave created a site, called Club140, that lists any tweets he sees on Twitter that are exactly 140 characters long (the max allowed by Twitter). Today, Dave posted this on Twitter: i just added code to http://club140.org/ to filter out messages from people posting from "protected" accounts. hadn't thought of it before. The issue is that some people have their tweets protected so that only people who are following them can see what they

You may not care what Dave's listening to, but chances are, someone does. Moreover, Dave's using Twitter as a messaging endpoint in what Rohit Khare calls a "syndication oriented architecture," or SynOA. Jon Udell and Rohit talked about this on IT Conversations a few weeks ago. I'm using Twitter in a similar way in my class this semester. My students are writing servers that send updates to a Twitter account via
