Micro.blog rewinds us to 2005 (or pick your year) — but, also, it has learned the lesson that people really like a timeline of short posts. People like being able to write and reply easily to other people.
We have been talking about the problems with Twitter, Facebook, and social media throughout the last year. Our guest has too, and he's trying to do something about it. Manton Reece, talks about Micro.blog, the technology it is built on, and how he is being thoughtful about building something new. - GeekSpeak Podcast for 2018-01-19
For so long I have looked on at Micro.blog. I was unsure whether I wanted to pay as I was unsure what I would be paying for and have been looking for a proper breakdown of the platform. John Johnston has been helpful, but but I still had questions. Manton Reece provides many of these answers in his appearance on the Geek Speak podcast. This included the difference between hosting and self-hosted, why it is different to other platforms, as well as how it fits in with the #IndieWeb. It is impetus I needed to dig deeper, especially as a means for comment and engaging with others.
