> I am mainly using this thing as blackmail to get people to be interested in being my friend. I want to do some real world community building, and something like this will go a long way to get a cooperative business up and running.Well, sharing code is sort of the main form of currency around web communities these days. If you look at the people in the node community that other people gravitate towards ( and would jump at a chance to work with ), they all produce quite a bit of useful code that they share with the community. And if I'm looking at someone as a technical cofounder, reading their code and seeing how they create working, production-ready libraries are at the top of my list.
> Furthermore... you do realize that asking another programmer to "just show me your code" is exactly the same as asking a girl to "just show me your breasts", right? I mean, I have nothing against it in principle, but, my god... I hardly know ye!!!
BTW, a good short treatise, that was written before the current web boom but predicts many of it's features, is "In the Beginning… Was the Command Line" by Neal Stephenson. Very short, definitely worth the read.

The difference between my drag and drop and all the HTML5 demos that you see on the web is that the dropped files immediately become icons that are integrated into the program.
> I will soon start working on getting multimedia icons/files working, so you'll be able to drop those directly in too. Then I will probably do a very basic kind of image editing demo that will allow you to change individual pixels or some such nonsense. But I don't want to get bogged down in the details of any particular application, because I always want to stay focused on the big picture of creating a totally powerful and intuitive way to organize our online lives.
> Anyway, I know I am quite a controversial figure here, but there should be no controversy that this thing is just about ready for prime time. I really do need to start getting interested people on board who would like to help me push the web forward. The basic mission statement for the venture will basically be that the "old web" (HTML4/version 1.0) is dead and gone. If anyone calls in search of help on their Flintstone era <html> documents with all of their <a href> and <div> tags laying about, we'll just point them in an entirely new direction. If they still insist on doing things the old way, we'll just hang up on them… This thing is all about the future!

I have really been concentrating on getting a nice, tight little API that developers will positively drool over. I don't want to make this thing publicly available for many reasons... but you can check out a youtube vid (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tq_W19QokXk) that shows it in action, and I still have my same old crappy prototype online at http://luvluvluv.info. Well, hopefully this is proof that I am able to do some cool stuff, and hopefully summa yous will want to start being my friend now, LOL!!!
