  2. It is me again.. ;)

    I think Wave is a great idea, but why it takes all this attention and buzz.

    I think they have not added much more to the tech by providing this solution. Small startups like Drop.io has provided a much intutive results before, and it does not take all that time google spent on such a project.

    The Email threads they have invited added nothing to this... what does this differ from the Group your emails based on conversations???

    IMHO Google during the last period doing nothing! yes nothing they are trying to do something, but nothing amazing, starting from Orkut, ending with Google videos, passing by Google Readers social features - I do not forget the great ideas they have made and added to the Search.

    But personally, I'd like to see Google spending more and more time, on Google Search, Gmail, GTalk, Google Docs, and Google Calendar.

    Google is still the leader in Search, but it lacks the innovation on other aspects like Social networking, and Photos.

    Regards,

  3. I still believe WAVE is a good implementation towards social email system, which fits under social networks like FB Twitter etc.

    But I myself like this implementation

  4. I do agree with you, it is a good implementation, a good re-organization for the way that people used to with current email systems - I do like it.
    But My point was, we miss the sense of innovation and creativity we used to with Google, and IMHO it does not worth all the buzz they have made for it.

    I'll give you an example, Google has now "Search options" as an addition to the search results.... what a great feature. Look to the way they have improved the way we search, and how they derive the wheel of creativity in search, and ads.
    Another project Google working on is "Google squared" or something like that!

    One think to mention: Thanks for these posts, and for your time - I really missed the discussions we have in the classes with you My Dr. Mustafa.

    Thanks :)

Publish to Wordpress using JSON API plugin and Coldfusion

I was using Postie to automatically publish to wordpress blog. I was searching a better method of publishing using soap api or json api. I found an excellent json plugin that can be used to publish posts and comments to wordpress.
Please follow the below step by step, this code will let you publish automatically for froma different interface to wordpress rather than using postie or email.

Step one: Install json plugin, enable the plugin and then go to settings > JSON API and  activate post

Step two: you have to modify the file: yourwordpressdirectory/wp-content/plugins/json-api/controllers/post.php

Please replace the file content with the below or add the missing Authenticate method. This method is necessary to authenticate a user to wordpress to be able to post content without a valid session.


<?php /* Controller name: Posts Controller description: Data manipulation methods for posts */ classJSON_API_Posts_Controller{ publicfunctioncreate_post(){ global$json_api; $this->authenticate()…
