I've planned from the start to do a lightweight anonymous "kudos" like Svtble but I'm also considering a Slashdot style "informative, insightful, funny, ..."


TED talks also have a potentially useful taxonomy too.


Slashdot's taxonomy seems to be:

  • Insightful
  • Informative
  • Interesting
  • Funny

TED's taxonomy is:

  • Jaw-dropping
  • Persuasive
  • Courageous
  • Ingenious
  • Fascinating
  • Inspiring
  • Beautiful
  • Funny
  • Informative
  • OK
  • Unconvincing
  • Confusing
  • Longwinded
  • Obnoxious
  • There needs to be some sort of 'kudos' system - I know jtauber is already working on this - but I thought I'd just repeat it because I can.

I think that it would work best per-card, with maybe a 'starring' ability for the whole stream.



We've added the ability to like cards. Just hover over a card and click the heart to let the author know you like what they said.

If a card already has likes, they will be visible without hover.



As well as liking cards, you can now also favorite people and streams.

This is done by clicking the star on a stream or profile page.

But whereas likes are a lightweight way of acknowledging what someone has written, favoriting an entire stream or a person has an additional effect.

Now on the main page that shows the latest updated streams, new streams, general thoughts and the fire hose, you can now choose to filter just by favorites.

When filtering by favorites, you'll only see content from streams you've favorited and from people you've favorited.
