+Blaine Cook, formerly of Twitter (and a former colleague) says Twitter experimented with a federated model. I wonder where things would have ended up ...

@daltonc to @haxor's point, we federated Twitter and Jaiku on the back end. It never shipped, but it worked and is a viable option. :-)

It seems that there are people out there who don't know/remember how Jaiku's channels worked.

+Jaiku channels:
You write a post. If it begins with a hashtag then the post only goes to the channel with the name of that hashtag. Now you aren't spamming your friends with posts from that cool conference and your family aren't forced to see all your javascript posts. No cross-posting was allowed.
Corrections welcomed.

Just finished my Jaiku backup script hack (I think). Now to sleep then to see how it runs in the morning.

It's basically a scraper, but couldn't yhinj of a nicer way to do it.

almost half a gig of data downloaded. woo. 10x the size (of initial data I had), 10x the number of posts too! (1182 vs 118 for my own posts). I'm sure my joined-jaiku post is in there somewhere...

At the time Qaiku launched I was quite upset (it felt like they'd made a closed-source version of Jaiku and split the community) but this is a really good review of their mistakes and the lessons they learned. People involved in the #indieweb  and FSW communities will spot a lot of familiar ideas/misconceptions.

I've read the article too, it's sad though sites like these need to die.

On another note, a comic regarding the topic http://webcubecakes.blogspot.com/2013/02/microblog-cubecakes-pt2-jaiku-qaiku.html

When the +Jaiku service is shutdown, would be at all possible to leave the OAuth process running, with the user credentials (and perhaps contacts) for a while longer? I just had an idea that it would be nice to set up somewhere for people to validate their Jaiku account, and then set up a contact page or a forwarding URL.

A bit like the #Goodbye tag on Jaikuarchive.com but more structured and manageable after the shutdown.

It would only need one-time verification of the Jaiku account through OAuth, then they could set up a login for the site itself. I'm annoyed at myself for only thinking of it now.

I just got a surprise , noticing that I was user 347 on Jaiku. The lowest numbered 'common user' I've found so far :o)

You can find out by looking at the URL of your user's avatar. If you see a number there it looks like it could be your account number, but if it's a hash then you got in a bit later when they started numbering the avatars differently.

+Mika Raento is 4, +Jyri Engeström is 6... any ideas who the 1-3 and 5 spots might be? The 'Jaiku' user is 15.

Is this really the account number?

Introduction
Jaiku's goal is to bring people closer together by enabling them to have conversations. It offers a way to connect with the people you care about by sharing updates with them.


Jaiku was a social networkingmicro-blogging and lifestreaming service comparable to Twitter.[1] Jaiku was founded in February 2006 by Jyri Engeström[2] and Petteri Koponen from Finland[3] and launched in July of that year. It was purchased by Google on October 9, 2007.[4]
