I finally get it.
So I looked at Allconsuming a few times, didn’t sign in, didn’t really get it.
Went back this morning, futzed with it, was confused by the interface for a little while, and then my head exploded. I’m in love. This is the site I was looking for when I wrote the entry on book metadata, and its author was kind enough to respond to my entry and too self-effacing to point out the obvious to me.
Its an amazing site, a beautiful web app (in a functional way), capitalizes on
the new social, semantic distributed blogo network better then anything I’ve
encountered, and is whip smart.
Favorite flourishI clicked on the “edit friends list”, with a certain trepidation, as I never know the protocols for declaring someone “a friend” in these online communities. Allcomsuming short circuited this problem by asking Google who my friends are:
rabble, dru, micah, pseudopunk, and a few names I didn’t recognize. Wild. Also community driven meta-data!
Sorry to burrble so early in the morning, but I’m excited.
