WWW: Where’s the Writable Web?

Prompted by our time at CERN, Remy ponders why web browsers (quite quickly) diverged from the original vision of being read/write software.

Huffcast

Tony recently remarked on Twitter:

Readwriteweb write the most thoughtful intelligent pieces around, and it’s worryingly indicative of our culture that they aren’t read more

I have my own, somewhat selfish, reason to praise this particular tech site. ReadWriteWeb’s lead writer, Marshall Kirkpatrick, is a big fan of Huffduffer. What an astute young man! He even made a screencast for Read Write Web.

Huffduffer Screencast

Seriously, I’m pleased as punch with this. Marshall totally gets it. When he mentioned on Twitter:

Every time I find a need to use @huffduffer I am happy happy happy…

…I thanked him and said:

Increasing happiness is the goal of that site.

…which is true. If only happiness weren’t such a damned difficult metric to track. But seeing someone else make a top quality screencast explaining the site is a pretty great indication that I’m doing something right.

Mind you, it does prompt me to slap my forehead and ask why didn’t I think of making a screencast?
