One of my favourite things about Ben Thompson’s site, Stratechery is that he chooses to not shout at you about his subscription offering. No pop-ups or banners or whatever. Classy. 👌

Hi, new people! Feel free to @ me. ✌️
Oh don’t mind me, just watching manipulative tear-jerking moments from reality TV on YouTube whilst stuffing my face full of croissants NBD
When @macgenie talks about the Microblog Academy all I want in the world is for there to be a beta of the Micro.blog platform and that is the name Manton chooses. AND WE GET A STAR TREK UNIFORM-INSPIRED PIN UPON BEING ACCEPTED INTO THE BETA. BEST IDEA OR VERY BEST IDEA?
It’s not just a matter of interface design. Apple has built an entire ecosystem to support and enrich the iPad for both customers and developers.
In the past five months I have found Google’s efforts to compete against Apple’s ecosystem, uh, shall we say… lacking.
Not only do I agree with @cheri’s suggestion for photo labelling in Micro.blog, I think it’s important for the implementation to go beyond basic functionality. I believe Micro.blog users ought to be prompted to add a label to their photograph.
