By doing all this experimentation with Twitter in JS, it's allowed, and inspired me, to learn so much about that language. Knowledge I otherwise probably wouldn't have, and that's what I love about the Twitter platform. It's so flexible and allows me to use it as the basis for tinkering around with any new technology I want. Feel like learning some new language or framework? Create a Twitter app. When the incredibly awesome JSFiddle.net came out, the first thing I did was hack together a YUI3/YQL/Twitter example to play around (http://jsfiddle.net/derek/Vjxt2/). Doing that with Facebook and other platforms would be more difficult than just a few lines of code. Anyways, </rambling> Cheers http://twitter.com/derek http://derekville.net On Fri, Mar 19, 2010 at 11:19 AM, Quy <quyten...@gmail.com> wrote: > My name is Quy Le (@quytennis) and I used to be a software engineer > but now I'm product manager at a high-tech company.
