The one thing I would like is a means of easily searching ‘users’ I have mentioned. That is one thing that I liked about Google+. However, I don’t really want the @ or +.
- What if everyone was talking at once? What would that look and sound like?
- What about the conversations that may not be appropriate for speaking out loud in public or in private.
My other question is uses beyond the novel. Yeah I can ask Google a question or play a track from The National, but what else? I am really interested in what particular workflows you develop in conjunction with your smart things.
NOTE: I have written this response in the open web and respect your desire to restrict such conversations to paying subscribers, which I am not one, sorry.
Personally, I think that it is a balance between where parents are and where you want them to be. I think a lot of people baulk at something like Edublogs because it is another space to log into, however I have significant concerns about sending people to places like Facebook and other such sites because of the issues with algorithms and advertising.
What annoys me most though about most forms of notifications is that they often send out a link to the information with just enough detail to get you to click, but not enough to be content.
Thought I would place my vote for the ‘education’ course. Although all of your courses provide insight and opportunities within education, I feel that there is real scope for an explicit education offering. Although there are some great offerings in regards to introductions (including your own), I think that a course which collated a range of educational scenarios would be a real benefit.
At work, I refused to share my contacts with WhatsUp (and Facebook Inc) and the answer has been that I am excluded from certain conversations. In this circumstance I have lost out?
I like your point about transferability and think that maybe as you point out that this maybe what matters most. This then allows for such projects as Manton Reece’s transfer of Instagram to Micro.blog or Jonathan LaCour’s move to transfer Facebook content using Micropub. A part of me wonders if I retired my Known instance to early?
