Why I’m enjoying Snapchat.
Really good in-house memo from Stewart Butterfield to the Slack team on what they need to do to build their customer base, for a product that most people don’t know they need.
If you ever thought the cookie warning you’ve been forced to put on your website was onerous, at least it’s not this starpubs.co.uk
I wrote about the thing I unexpectedly like best about Snapchat: gyford.com/phil/writing/2…
(To clarify earlier tweet, ViziCities isn’t just a 3D map of London, but everywhere (that has the data). vizicities.apps.rawk.es )
@robhawkes I’ve belatedly realised that, yes! Good work!
Ooh, new ViziCities demo (3D London model), and you can install your own off of GitHub: vizicities.apps.rawk.es
@Beeker I might start a new social network, devoted solely to letting me know when programmes I like are coming on telly.
@boutique_felix That sounded negative - I like it, more than a mouse. I just prefer the position of a MacBook trackpad - less side movement.
@boutique_felix Yes, I do. Prefer using a trackpad on a MacBook though, but I’m on an iMac at work.
@agpublic I *guess* it’s still hard. I’m not sure what you’d do with being 90% certain you know which bit of text is an author’s name.
@agpublic It’s really basic, very common, data, but very hard to work out from a page’s HTML. (Not that I’m a semantic web nut.)
@agpublic A simple problem from a past project: Try to programatically find the authors and publish date of articles on any website.
@alruii Oh yes, I forgot that. That was annoying. I guess I assumed it was more audio fingerprinting or something.
Of the De La Soul albums I grabbed, iTunes Match matched most of two of them, but not three others. Not sure I understand iTunes Match.
@mattsheret Ahhh, good, right, OK :)
@mattsheret Really what? I haven't seen it yet.
