Mnikr: Locked Down for New Launch
I’ve gone ahead and locked down Mnikr behind an Apache Username/Password gate, because I’ve pushed the last feature changes to it now, and need to wait for my advisor’s approval before letting users sign up when they can actually do all the reputation trading! Hence, please check back next week (Tues/Wed) for a full launch, announced, one might hope, in all the most fashionable locations. :-)
Sharding for Privacy
I spent yesterday at Transparency Camp, a great unconference filled with not only many of the most brilliant minds in technology (especially social media), but with a huge number of representatives from different parts of the US government, all interested in using social media to fulfill the new administration’s requirement for transparency and openness in government. It was a great time, and I’ll write more about the sessions there at a future point.
