Micropub Editing Needs To Improve

Today Dave Winer writes about simplicity of blogging, what he describes as Flow. The idea is to make writing a new blog post as frictionless as possible.

For me it very quick to write and publish a new blog post, I click the OmniBear icon on the Chrome toolbar, write in Content field, and click Post. Boom, I have a new post on my blog.

However, what happens next is a problem. To edit a post I have to go to the site and click through many steps rather than see a simple Edit link on the post or the ability to open the post to edit in Bear.

Editing appears to be a weakness of micropub, most likely because its origin is tied to Twitter which has no concept of editing. We need better ways to originate and edit blog posts.
