Heh, my profile photo appears sideways on the desktop browser. I guess I might have rotated it using an EXIF tag or something that the phone honors but Chrome doesn't.

Oh, nice! I like that there's both a UNIX timestamp and an ISO timestamp for all the time fields. Separating out created_at and publish_at is also a nice touch. I just need to work out where that token comes from, and the network inspector in Chrome will give me a good chunk of the API. ;)


Scrolling repost issue bit me. Also typing in here for some reason is outpacing the browser renderer. Crashed it a moment ago.

I did ask about API specs. ;p

Is New Blurb the only gateway to view the Blurb timeline? It's the only route I've found.

I kept trying to tap outside the callout. I thought I succeeded by zoom out and tap at edge, but I must have just hit the callout itself.

// Standard behavior for popovers on Apple platforms are to dismiss on tap outside. Modal alerts and such generally have an OK button to dismiss instead. One the user can ignore, the other they have to interact with.

It's going to take some adjustment to think thoughts longer than 256 characters. ;)

I think that gives me enough implementation detail to understand how to work around that issue. :) Is there an API spec somewhere? (Though IIRC you mentioned some clients already in progress.)

Since you have italics for the handle, maybe set the whole name + handle bit in the same light gray?

I think of the name as attached to the profile image, so I'd almost expect it as a caption beneath rather than something off to the right side.


I've actually done that kind of threading on ADN. Sometimes across several days I think, as I plug away at a side project and slowly research things, try them out, and report back with the results. It's not just made up!

I am guilty of also treating a post as a paragraph or thought in itself, so I tend to thread a series of thoughts together. There's a tension here between "we should fade long thoughts so they don't eat the timeline" and "a blurb is one thought". I can see it both ways.

That sort of multi-day threading could be handled by editing the post and top-posting with the new bits, as long as the blurb sorts into the timeline by last modified rather than creation date. That might be the more 10C native approach to balance these desires?

Having an asterism to separate thoughts might also make me happy to put multiple thoughts in one blurb, hmm.
