Simply Jonathan

App.net’s Developer Incentive Programme 

Whether App.net will succeed will still likely depend on their ability to make people abandon Twitter for it, but as a developer, I like their initiatives in this regard. Acknowledging third party value, and having that be the founding principle, is something I can only believe will lead to great experiences.

Of course, this is only possible because App.net get money from the users directly, no matter what clients they use. Twitter are leaving money on the table by allowing third party apps to not show ads.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.
