      If it's an alternative media, trying to make the point on freedom, the whole point will be on be really free (no estrangers saving a live I don't want to save), or the responsability of freedom (don't say you are alone because you've lost faith in …

      Quite interesting what you point out here. But there is one point missing (at least for me): what would be the intentional message? I mean, I know journalism should be as objective as possible, but writing always means a point of view, and a point …

      Don’t worry, @Chris , the important thing is that I have an answer and I know now what to expect (and what not to expect) from the functionality… that was my main concern ;)

      I try not to make life complicated, but I work in projects that require some undertanding of my customer's field and this is done by reading and using the same websites as they do… and I really need to keep this out of my browser history, but also …

      So, good user experience will be having a user tell which languages can (or want to) read for a topic, and keep track of it in those languages. Doing the “obvious” manual feed adding “social photography”, “candid photography”, “street photography” …

      Some studies have been made because not only “moderated” groups act like that but individuals (with the help of algorithms like the one facebook uses) tend to filter interaction to just the ones that have similar point of view. It's a human …

      My main question (that maybe I couldn't emphasize because I'm not English native speaker) is whether “topics” (or controlled vocabularies as you said in other post) are to be merged for different languages or not. If I follow a subject like …

      Yes, I know about controlled vocabularies as computer scientist and as photographer 😉 But it's the context use of these controlled vocabularies that usually is tied to a single user, so I cannot have… say “personas” or personalities depending on …

      I always have doubts when it comes to follow interests on a social media so in the future I'll be given the posts/pictures/videos/etc. Will this site show me again and again posts about bake-ware that I was interested in just in a short period of …

      Some will like the conversation where Maradonna is the main speaker, some will like the one where Messi is the speaker… and some will prefer Ronaldo's point of view. And yes, you got it, the main point is not making the bubble so perfect that I …

      Yes, recommenders, when well thought, can be powerful. But there are tons of bad recommender algorithms out there. I'm really tired of booking suggestions about places I've been some time ago, because there were good options while traveling to …

      I've been following some interesting conversations about Cake an the main idea behind it, but being an Spanish native speaker (living in Spain), my question is inmediately… what about topics in other languages? I mean, if I start a conversation in …

      "show me interesting conversations on topics I follow from people I like *in this topic* first." Maybe I'm very interested in Shakespeare posts about literature, but when it comes to soccer, I prefer Maradona's… does it make sense? But, please …

      In your last paragraph, Chris, you have stated exactly the feaute I've always missed in social media. Just because my friend X is my friend, it doesn't mean she makes interesting contributions to the things I'm interested in. An also, just because …

      I'd love having an RSS feed I could feed my app of choice with. Not quite in the mood for checking more than one social media per day, not big fan of houdreds of apps sending me notifications to my mobile device. But despite I'd not represent the …

      I can use pictures (not just photos, but also paintings or collage), music (certain music reminds me the mood I associate with the location and atmosphere I want to convey), food (I collect cookbooks or just oral told cooking recipes in my …

      Yes, Scrivener is really cool. Not easy to convince people used to work in one-document-based software to use it for the first time, but when they do, they really love it.
