+Chris Messina Was the IRC convention of hashtags for channel names inspiration for hashtags in Twitter when you posted this?

Yep:

What I’ve realized is that this “channel” concept meets many of the aggregate desires expressed in various “Groups for Twitter” discussions while not inheriting a lot of the unnecessary management cruft that most group systems seem to suffer from, it is easily accessible adapting current Twitter syntax and convention, it’s easy to learn and lightweight, it’s very flexible and entirely folksonomic and works with people’s current behaviors, rather than forcing anyone to learn anything radically new. It also keeps the interface aspects to a minimum (as I’ll soon explain), invents little by borrowing from age old IRC conventions also adopted by an existing web application and, from what Britt said so far, actually works consistently on cell phones (whereas, for example, the star key does not).

Looks like MapKit doesn't render streets in Israel, but the native Maps app does. Can someone with iOS5 installed take a screenshot of the Geoloqi app centered in Israel? I'm curious if it's updated in iOS5 at all.

Writing contracts feels a little bit like programming. There is an expected syntax and structure, there are certain key words that have special meaning (i.e. functions, keywords), and removing certain clauses make the entire contract invalid (i.e. runtime error). However, contracts are executed over a much longer timeline.

Well, and a "onpenrelease" event ;) you know, onpenrelease = function(){ initContract(); money++; }

The new Google Calendar looks really nice, but there's more things in the header now pushing the actual calendar lower. On my 11" screen, I can't see much of a calendar anymore.

Wait a sec... haven't all address book apps had this "circles" thing for a while? I can add people to groups in Gmail's contacts, so why aren't those synced over to Plus?
