* 1. - it's more focused on a particular subspecies of social media assholes

These are social media assholes we read & trust.

Can understand why this guy hates Google so much if he keeps checking Analytics to find people like us laughing at him.

Stellar is great, yes. Really needs the ability to find your friends, though. I'm just following a bunch of randoms and it's worrying how often people favorite Gruber's stuff.

James Mitchell, Tuesday, 31 January 2012 18:31 (seven years ago) link

well they prob just read and then trusted him

lag∞n, Tuesday, 31 January 2012 18:33 (seven years ago) link

markers, Tuesday, 31 January 2012 18:46 (seven years ago) link

Can send an invite to the email on your user profile. Only got one left, though.

James Mitchell, Tuesday, 31 January 2012 19:25 (seven years ago) link

Gruber's page is here: http://stellar.io/gruber/bestof

James Mitchell, Tuesday, 31 January 2012 19:26 (seven years ago) link
