Mad Libz, Yo!
It seems that quite a few people like the signup form on Huffduffer. This pleases me.
Ideally what I’d like to do is build a signup form that has one text field—
What’s your URL?—and use that single piece of information to derive login credentials (OpenID), identity (hCard) and relationships (XFN). Alas, time constraints put the kybosh on that plan …for now.
This turn of phrase “mad libs” was new to me. I took it to be a compliment of some kind, perhaps along the lines of “mad props”, “mad skillz” or other stock phrases in the vernacular of the youth today.
Tracking the word “huffduffer” on Twitter, I noticed that other people were also using this phrase “mad libs” to describe the form.
How very gratifying, I thought.
I’m getting a ‘shout out’ from ‘my peeps’.
It turns out that Mad Libs is a party game where you fill in the blanks to humourous effect. I had no idea. I’m such a square.
Do you still use that word; square?
