With the benefit of having spent a bit of time thinking about it, my suggestion would be to use ‘Micro.blog’ for the service and ‘micro.blog’ for a Micro.blog-compatible blog (whether hosted or not).
It would be better to have a clearer distinction (and one with a vocal difference), but I think it’s preferable from an ideological standpoint to what I did in my article where I annexed the word ‘microblog’ (which of course existed before Micro.blog).
@oyam @manton The necessity of the camera depends on what photos you’re talking about posting, I think. If you’re talking about a collection, then yes. But if you’re talking about making quick one-shot I’m here Instagram-like photos, then having to jump in between apps just to do this is really discouraging.
I confess I don’t really understand the cluttered argument. Reasonable people can disagree about these sorts of things but to my mind I don’t see why the ‘source’ for photos can’t just include the camera? That menu already displays a bunch of options, some combination of which I’d have to imagine are superfluous for almost every user (how many people are honestly using Flickr at this point?).
