Understanding #App.net : It’s Microblogging As a Service
Pas tout compris à l’intérêt d’App.net par rapport à Twitter (et Status.net) à part la disparition des pubs et l’ouverture de l’API.
App.net has so far raised nearly $800,000 in membership fees with the promise that it will be a non-commercial, user and developer-friendly version of Twitter. It’s off to a good start, with early adopters enthusiastically kicking the tires of App.net’s alpha service and (perhaps more importantly) its API. But there is still a lot of confusion about what App.net is exactly. The key is not to view App.net as a Twitter clone, but as a service like Dropbox or Evernote.

Et pour celles et ceux qui apprécient les « flux globaux » qui permettent de voir tout ce qui est publié ;-) y’en a un sur app.net :
The Reimagination of Publishing
Plusieurs nouvelles plateformes de publication mentionnées.
Last Friday I did a presentation at The Project [R]evolution conference in Auckland, New Zealand. I presented on a topic I’ve been writing a lot about recently: the reimagination of publishing. I haven’t been this excited about innovation in Web publishing since the early, experimental days of blogging, when I started ReadWriteWeb circa 2002-03. In particular, three new products have captured my imagination: #App.net, #Medium and #Branch. It’s too early to tell if any of those three products will be successful, but I like them because they are doing something different - and as a result, shaking things up.
