But I woke up this morning with a bee in my bonnet, and have spent essentially the entire day writing. It's all over on the Querki Project Development Journal, and you can go there to read it, but here's the gist.
First, there's a short entry on Blogs. A blogging system is going to be one of the early use cases, and I just came up with the first feature that is, I believe, a genuine improvement over the platforms that are out there. The main point of implementing a blog in Querki is to demonstrate the system's flexibility, so this should do that nicely.
Then there's a *long* discussion about Conversations. All of my long-time friends know that this is a passion of mine, and I haven't done much on it since the CommYou days, but it's going to come back with a vengeance in Querki. The topic got broken into four posts:
- Conversations and CommYou lays out my history with the subject.
- Querki, Comments and Conversation discusses what "conversation" means in the context of Querki.
- Conversation Threading Models recaps my long-ago discussion about how threaded conversations work, and describes the light-threaded model used by CommYou and Wave.
- System and Method for Presenting Complex Threaded Conversations on Small-Screen Devices is the anti-patent that started this all off, laying out how to manage serious conversation on a smartphone.
