    Commenting On The Web Is Broken

    When we came up with ReadSocial, we knew it was solving a big problem but it wasn’t necessarily an obvious problem.

    By Travis Alber (Founder, ReadSocial)

    Commenting is broken. I don’t want to sound too harsh, realizing there are comments at the end of this article and that it’s technically possible to use them. The paradigm for commenting on the web hasn’t changed in 15 years, but how we communicate online has. We communicate in the moment. We share our thoughts. Talk about it.

    But just like we’ve done for more than a decade, we talk about it somewhere else. We scroll 30 paragraphs down the article and type in a little box at the end. Or open a separate tab. Sometimes we comment on a separate social network

    Story Of The Hackfest – Bacon Unicorn!

    During the hackathon, we’re constantly evaluating whether “it’s worth it” on any given problem.

    By Anna Billstrom (iOS & Facebook App Developer, Self)

    The AT&T Hackfest was in Palo Alto. Sleepy, beautiful, affluent, diverse and yet economically not-diverse, Palo Alto, at the AT&T Foundry, a neat space with lots of power, sunlight, and (oddly, but great) random doors onto the street. I kind of love that place.

    We slowly formed a team – my teammate from other hackathons, Stacie Hibino, and Estelle Weyl, whom I’d admired her from a JavaScript class a few months ago, and Stacie had worked with her at another hackfest. Two friends joined and left, graphic designers lured elsewhere. A friend Kris was with us the first day.
