My Praise for

The posts that I write here are hosted on a platform known as that hosts my feed (in RSS format) and a network of feeds to which members of the platform contribute. The feeds are rendered in a timeline format accessible via web and mobile applications developed and maintained by the platform founder Manton Reece and his colleagues. hosts each member’s feeds rendered in a web site that can be accessed by a domain name owned by the member, such as mine at The feeds are open such that other people like Loura can write their own web applications to render the feeds in a timeline format and make it usable by other members. Alternate mobile applications are also available. Finally, one can write and publish posts from alternate applications like Drummer, which I am currently using. In summary, is an example of a successful, open platform built and maintained by a handful of people, enhanced by a community of members, and is affordable.
