You know what I miss? StatusNet's tree-based threading.
Some of the best and most formative threads of my life I read on 20 post deep StatusNet threads
I guess the one Zen of Python item I disagree with is "Flat is better than Nested"... well, depending on the context!
@cwebber It's just a rendering thing, right?
@elomatreb Yes, but most UIs since StatusNet haven't exposed these things, other than maybe Reddit
@elomatreb not that I'm advocating Reddit as a place to have conversations (any more... it was a better place for that in 2008)
Legit question! I think we can... a successful peer to peer network with community oriented web of trust type things probably wouldn't be as large and global of a monocommunity of eg twitter while still supporting the scale of twitter, and that may be a Very Good Thing
@cwebber I thought about this before, a "light tree view" with only a slight indentation might be a nice thing for e.g. toot replies, since the way they render conversations breaks the chronological timeline assumption already
@cwebber I wonder if this is because showing nesting on a portrait phone screen rather than a landscape desktop screen is harder.
@cwebber I think someone has to get on AP-based Reddit thing.
@cwebber like in MacSoup
