Dhamaka says:

so.... shall I mention all those still unfulfilled moblogged promises of yours now? Or shall I just save it and extract payment later when you're not expecting it?

nige says:

i don't seem to remember an expiration date on my promises, so they are simply "as yet" unfulfulled...hmmph.

Joe says:

right....i'd like to build a plotblogging application to make things easier for people to send each other stuff, any ideas how this could work? I mean we wouldn't want just a database of peoples addresses, nobody would sign up....

nige says:

hmmm, nice one Joe. have to ponder that...

I did a snailmail app which worked by getting people to send an "authorisation code" in the package, which the reciever submitted to the site upon reciept of the package, making them the "sender" and giving them access to 1 persons address, but this only really allows for one person to be "it" as it where

Dhamaka says:

cool Joe, may I have a think too? If that's the one I tried last year it wouldn't let me join..

Nige - promises, promises.

actually Joe, what about some kind of buddy system? where instead of entering an address those who wanted could enter a buddy - another moblogger who has their address anyway. Then anyone wanting to plotblog as a surprise could contact the buddy through the normal moblog contact system. Since the buddy wouldn't give the intended recipient's address to anyone who they didn't recognise from moblog, a level of security is automatically maintained.

I like the 'sender' and 'receiver' idea but could the two not be integrated so that the 'sender' could decide whether they wanted to send to a random moblogger or to a particular moblogger? Anyone wanting to send to a random one would automatically fit into the same process that you set up before, but if the system accepted anyone rather than someone with a code, anyone could join in at any time and neither your 'receiver' nor my 'recipient' would be obliged (or feel obliged) to plotblog if they didn't want to or weren't in a position to do so. Could send you a process flow if my words aren't clear.. (but not till next week)

Just an idea..

Joe, what about a really low tec version where people sign up and somebody keeps the addresses in an address book off line.

Your app would allow a moblogger to select a moblog name and have the address sent to them by Email by sending a request to the keeper of the moblog address book. A real person would control it and would stop abuse / harvesting. A bit of manual interaction but as plotblogging does take a bit of time if you need to wait a few hours for the address what does it matter?

On the sign up page, you could have an option to exclude people from obtaining your address by exception (you name them) or on mass by rule, like only to my friends list, or site subscribers etc..

A few bits to be thinking about :)

Joe says:

good stuff thanks....I will point out that this wouldn't be integrated into mobloguk itself, but be a seperate entity, I'm just a contractor to moblog, so I don't have the authority to just add things :)

Dhamaka says:

absolutely :-)

btw I use your firefox add-in for moblog, which is great

Joe's first idea is perfect for a Moblog Secret Santa arrangement... ;)

...looking at this, I can't shift from my mind the french word for paperclips - what a big pile of trombones! :)

25th Aug 2006, 17:33

Are you sending paperclips to someone? Unusual gift choice, but I really like the photo!

Joe; I use your firefox add-in too. Very cool. Did you ever release the postbuilder though or is it still being tested?

What is this fire-fox add on you speak of ? What did I miss? Hmpf! :)

25th Aug 2006, 23:39

Uber> See here. You can get it from the FF add-ons page.

Joe also developed a post builder. but I can't find it on the extension page so I'm assuming it's still in development.
