This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
Has anyone been watching the Twitter Chirp Developer Conference?
What are people's thoughts on this advancement?
Author of the upcoming book entitled "The Developer's Guide to Social Programming" available to pre-order on Amazon.
It's interesting. My biggest concern with integrating with Twitter right now is how they are treating 3rd party developers as of late. I'm just not inclined to include Twitter unless absolutely necessary, until things get sorted out.

I think you're right there, Gregg. A lot has been discussed in the Twitter's developer forums since the acquisition of Tweetie. Each of the platforms does have the potential to pull the rugs from the feet of developers at any time. Facebook has continually been retracting its functionalities for some time to streamline its services to its users. What you do get with Twitter is a popular (at the moment) service which is looking to expand but to what expense to its developers?
