BirdFeeder – Might Be Onto Something

April 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

When I first heard of this I dismissed it as I thought they were talking about the demise of email due to Twitter. That would be a ridiculous notion. However, after getting into the presentation further, (found here) I realized Daniel Sandler might be onto something.

From the BirdFeeder website:

Birdfeeder is the prototype implementation of a RESTful, interoperable, Internet-scale microblogging protocol, tentatively called Fethr (Featherweight Entangled Timelines over HTTP Requests).

Although this would need some traction to really get going. Look at Instant Messaging. How long has it been a great tool for communication and still there is little to no interopability between the various systems. Only Google / GTalk and a few others have adopted XMPP so that there is the possibility of interopability. The big guys, ICQ, Yahoo, MSN, AIM still haven’t bothered to interoparate much if at all.
