So interesting little bit from last night's Personal Clouds gathering (and there will be more, it was a fascinating night): Priv.ly is a browser plug-in that embeds linked data in-line.

Why is this a big deal? The use-case is that you comment on your favorite social media site, and rather than putting the comment there, the field gets a link to your content. Clearly there are some issues to be worked out here, but... right now when I make an image post, my FaceTwit updater puts that image on Flutterby.net and tosses links on Facebook and Twitter (and here).

This could be a way for me to make those updates, and more, and have richer content show up in-line in whatever aggregator/stream system people are using. I'm not sure the whole thing has come together yet, but it's an intriguing concept...

If I had time right now, I'd like to make some modules for "widget" to suck in data I write on Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.. and store it all on my local website. Write anywhere, and also "improve my brand" at the same time.

or not, depending on how stupid I am.

Meuon, look at ifttt.com for some ready made modules.

IFTT.com is kewl, and almost the opposite of what I want to do. Part of the reason to code these things myself, is to see how these other systems are working, or not. And I specifically want to interface to things that it does not support and have a copy of everything on my server.

What I am realizing is how much value/content I add to other entities, but have no central copy of myself. That includes Flutterby, although I admit the value may be negative ;)

if it pours rain today, I may build it.. Otherwise, it's a work on the house weekend.
