bus ride has me thinking I want to to

The bus ride has me thinking "I want to to read and respond to these blogs offline", then realized I was reinventing NNTP. Sigh.

Okay, so clearly I need to do three things:

  1. Build that system I described two comments up.
  2. Figure out regular expressions that catch all the ways you can get to this entry.
  3. Canonicalize my URLs so you can't see those other ways...

Hanan, I've got a couple of email lists which are serving that function. Socially we aren't yet to the quick snark of Twitter, and the fact that I'm using Google Apps for email for Flutterby.com kinda sucks for that because Google's lists are awful, but...

All the talk about an open distributed Twitter also made me think about NNTP.

I've been thinking about some of this stuff, too. If you get a chance I'd like your feedback. I may be reinventing something I'm not aware of. :)
