@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?).
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).
