    @joshuaarnao @blumenkraft I'm not adding any more beta testers right now, but everyone who backs the project on Kickstarter will get invites. http://micro.blog/kickstarter

      Check out Connected 125 today for a really good discussion about microblogging and my own Micro.blog. They cover the ADN shutdown, my new stretch goal, and the challenges of building a safe and diverse community. Great points.

        Latest Micro.blog feature: Safe Replies, with a special Kickstarter goal to hire a community manager.

          The premise of the stretch goal: Twitter lost control of the platform because they planned for hate/harassment 10 years late. Start earlier.

            2 weeks in today, going to announce a stretch goal for the Kickstarter. Nervous about rocking the boat. But, missed opportunity if I don’t.

              Key for Micro.blog: it’s a success if more people blog. To provide value it doesn’t need to replace Twitter. But also, it can.

                @cgiffard Also consider contacting the Tweetbot folks. They ran a push server for Netbot so if it's still running somehow, it might have an archive. Unlikely but worth a shot.

                  @cgiffard Sure, what do you need? I may have some posts in the Watermark.io database as well, although it's mostly tweets, and the format would be incomplete.

                    @clarkgoble I did. Lots of little hand-drawn pencil sketches and then Motion for fading/sliding things around. Was really fun work on. (And I wanted to do more but ran out of time.)

                      I posted a short video of the Micro.blog iPhone app as a Kickstarter update. This expands on the limited screenshots in the original Kickstarter video, and hopefully explains a few more things about how everything works.

                        Lots of ways to resize video, but for some reason I just downloaded Final Cut Pro. Feels like a “use regex, now you have 2 problems” joke.

                          Pretty excited for the Nintendo Switch. Great to have Zelda at launch and Mario later in the year. Hope they can meet early demand.

                            @muncman I'd love to support import from a few sources, including ADN. I've got my ADN archive too and will be experimenting with it. (And yes, lots of pressure but it's good pressure.)

                              @hazardwarning @cgiffard Thanks! No need to run servers. There will be a paid option to have Micro.blog host a microblog for you. Super easy. Or you can use WordPress or similar blogging software.

                                We posted Core Intuition 266 this morning: Chris Lattner from Apple to Tesla, Medium’s new focus, and blogging business models.
