@colinwalker Agreed. And micro.blog kind of lends parity given I can’t edit the posts here. And editing it back on my blog is too much of a friction - preventing me from doing so.

@amit But you could if you wanted. I’m thinking about a mechanism to prevent editing unless you really dig into things like databases.

@colinwalker for me, it’s editing the post in a text editor and sending out as an additional commit - for CI to build and deploy. Enough friction to not go through it. No edits might become difficult when it’s a set of disparate endpoints for the posts.

@colinwalker I agree with you. I never even followed Dave on twitter, just read his rss feed. The idea that he doesn't feel he can express his ideas immediately on his site just doesn't seem to match the experience as a reader.
