  2. After a race is before a race. 40 days til #BaytoBreakers #b2b103. Time for track tuesday.

  3. On the otherhand, just had a superb above & beyond SF Apple Store experience. Service counts for a lot. Thanks Lorl!

  4. Eye-opening watching dad use new iPhone 5S. So many problems * text/buttons/keyboard too small * touch too sensitive * unforgiving UI flow Prime example: Google Maps for iOS - so bad. * Street names are unreadably small * UI flow incredibly difficult to figure out. When you tap a button or option, there is no obvious way how to get back. Thus unforgiving: you accidentally tap something, you're lost. * Unforgiving UI flow = scares user away from trying things and learning. * Open from sleep (lock screen) frustrating - loses state, whether in directions, or zoomed in on a map to a specific location, etc. This is unacceptable. Web browsers figured this out years ago. When you re-open a mobile browser it brings you back to exactly the page you were on. Google Maps is just another kind of browser. It should support history (*without* any need to login) just like any other browser does. Perhaps Google Maps could use URLs internally and re-use history code from Chrome for iOS.

  5. finished #RnRSF 2:29, 7min slower than Kaiser. Ran all hills, sprinted last 1km. Thanks #NPSF @rk @kh for hugs+cheers!

  7. @W3C Web Annotations Workshop stats annotations about it during it * 138 #ianno14 tweets * 122 #annotation @kevinmarks tweets * 1 hackpad: * hackpad.com/Annotator-at-I-Annotate-2014-ksUGlRnOq3j * 1 Tumblr post (was cross-tweeted) * 0 blog posts Explicitly not double-counting: * 7 original notes POSSE copied from my site to among those 138 #ianno14 tweets: * http://tantek.com/2014/092/ * 1 @kevinmarks summary post: * http://kevinmarks.com/w3cannotation.html Method used to count tweets: Twitter search, omitting results obviously from before/after workshop start/end by timestamp, omitting Tumblr cross-tweet. If I'm missing any other *web* annotations created by workshop attendees during the workshop itself, please reply and link to them so I can update these stats. There was lots of annotation use-case *talk* at the workshop, but was the actual annotation *walk* during the ~8 hour workshop? 260 tweet annotations 2 non-tweet annotations (hackpad, tumblr) Tweet "comments" were the 99% use-case of web annotations. This is what I previously* meant by High Frequency Annotations (HFAs). When we measure what workshop participants *did* as opposed to what they *said* they wanted, these comments (posted as tweets) about the event (using a hashtag as a proxy event GUID reference) were the most frequent type of web annotation made by attendees. Not counted, but would make for interesting additional data: Second-order annotations of those tweets, e.g.: * # of retweets: a full requote of a comment * # of favorites: like +1/starring a comment * # of replies: comments on comments of those 260 tweets. *Previously: tantek.com/2014/092/t5/ianno14-high-frequency-annotations-do-today

  8. #ianno14 3. #Indieweb Annotations Focus. Our "itches" focus has solved HFA use-cases + others like RSVPs, invitations.

  9. #ianno14 2. High Frequency Annotations. Heard talk of use-cases, but what did people *do* today? Needs HFAs blog post.
