The Button now in Open Beta

I am pleased to announce that The Button is now in open beta. The Button is a femtoblogging platform I’ve been developing; I expect it to eclipse Twitter by this time next year. Give it a try and let me know if you run into any problems.

From the The Button website:


First there was ordinary blogging, dominated by walls of text that clutter your screen. Then there was microblogging, which replaced the wordiness with social networking, but still requires you to write “content” for other people to “read”. Who has time for that?

Not us.

Femtoblogging reduces microblogging’s character count by a factor of 10-9, getting out of your way so you can post femtoblogs without all that bothersome typing.

Do I need an account?

You’ll need a free account to leverage all the social features of The Button. Yes, you’ll have to type a user name and password first, but we’re working on fixing that soon.

But even without signing up, you can still try The Button out. Browse around, post anonymously, and see what everyone else is up to. When you’re ready to dive in to the world of femtoblogging, the sign up form is up at the top.

Can I push the button?

Of course! You know you want to.
