(hello

‘world)

How will this software get my users laid?

Middle of the night surfing, I came across the site of one of the original XEmacs and Netscape (and later, Mozilla) developers, where is the small article, Groupware Bad. It makes a lot of good points that I think a lot of people miss, especially on why Netscape 4.0 was trash (heh, I remember when everyone called it ‘Nutscrape’) and making software that people actually want to use (and contribute to).

Of course, the titular quote:
“How will this software get my users laid” should be on the minds of anyone writing social software (and these days, almost all software is social software).
