I was wondering if microblogs are a nice tool to do (better?) Mention In Passing (MIP)?
I imagine a link between bug databases (mantis, bugzilla, jira, ...) + e.g. twitter, identi.ca, friendika ...
- tweets, dents, ... have a limit (ca. 140 chars) it makes sure people describe the "main" thing
- one has an automatic time stamp
- in the form of Statusnet one has the possibility to show replies in a tree like structure
- for e.g. reconstructing after test sessions the time spent on activities
- after testing + review these MIPs in the database could be deactivated(?)
- helps to keep the database clean?
- to have later acess to this MIP knowledge a checkbox with MIP in search would be nice
- Can be probably utilized over feeds offered (+ some filtering of tags) already
- or you could get feeds from both + display in a feed viewer?
- only to specific users (company internal, beta testers, ...) or
- activates public knowledge during your sessions (not only because you have now more people who might help (re)test for you ;-) )
- in general you could see what people are experiencing in times when you do not test (the released version)
Because of some problems with another federation software, I thought I'd dedicate more time again to my good old Mediawiki.
The result is this Mediawiki extension: Send2StatusNet
you can send wiki edits/articles to any StatusNet website of your choice (e.g. also identi.ca)
read more about it there
if you have other MediaWiki/StatusNet versions than listed, would be great, if you could shortly try it out and add your versions - thx
The picture shows the amount of users, projects and the avg. users per project of some open source software hosters.

google returns 215 results for
"This site is running FusionForge"
For these projects I could not get actual data, so I did not list them in the picture:
In the following picture:
- you see the info from 110 Friendica servers
- which have together 2827 members
so, what you can see in the picture is:
- 53 servers are running MIT licenced free-friendika (announced recently, further info)
- 77 servers are running version 2.3 (>= 2.2.1082)
- the peak you see is the friendika demo server
Why did I select only 110 server? because for them the info about friendika versions is available. In total there are ca. 370 public servers which have in total ca. 3300 users
keep in mind: some of them are only created for testing purposes
I was thinking that since about 1 week there is a tendency to write more in my new Friendica (a web application for managing social communications),
so I wondered yesterday:
- Will my Mediawiki blog be useless?
Why is that?
- friendika allows posting of more than 140 chars + formating
- it allows to crosspost to other networks (e.g. to identi.ca)
(which I also can do over an RSS feed for Mediawiki or extension: Send2StatusNet)
While I was thinking about this, I've also noted down what blocks me currently to use friendika more efficiently, see (exploring Friendika: behaviour after 1 week)
I am using now friendika together with StatusNet, see Micro blogging posts
Anyways, we'll see.
What I still prefer in the wiki is its versioning + other features friendika does not offer (yet).
Another issue is the import of existing blog posts.
- Though over the last years a tendency of mine was to diverse more (>5 blogs) I tend to collect now more at one place (makes searching + classifying later on easier)

- a little bit of this and when I am bored I give more attention to the other

A better licence: but which one? is it cc-by-sa?
Two members of the Parabola community got me into thinking:
- why don't I change the licence for my content?
After some talking I guess I'll change for future works to cc-by-sa. Let's sleep more about this, more to come...
- cc-by for: statusnet.skilledtests.com
- licence change for wiki text: CC-BY-SA
Tao Te Ching 道德經 (chapter 11 in book 1) speaks of usefulness (and profit).
One interpretation may go in business direction...
I am exploring Program-O (a chat bot which is GPL and based on AIML (Artificial Intelligence Markup Language))...
It's another way to save knowledge,
access is open, though standard search engines will probably not find its content so easily (see wikipedia: Invisible Web / Deep Web)
The bot is available here (or see the sidebar)
Here's a short summary on the Chinese string instrument:
- erhu (二胡 - 이호 - Эрху - erhuo - er hu - er-chu)
Here's a short summary on old Chinese music:
it's about 7 female artists from the early 20th century:
they are called: "Seven great singing stars" (七大歌星 - 40年代上海歌坛七大歌星 - qī dà gēxīng - De syv store sangstjerner)
- there are 175k total plays on last.fm for them
- with max. 33k listeners
- (I've 1.1k plays)
As you can see the person dying the earliest has more plays - perhaps the proverb that only if an artist dies (s)he gets famous is true?
