The genius of Facebook is that as soon as we all signed up, they realised it was time to unleash their killer move, and launched the Facebook Platform. So firstly, congratulations for the timing. Secondly, it means developers with far too much time on their hands, and faster coders than me, have already built apps that nicely show my latest Vimeo videos and Flick photos on my Facebook profile (SubVimeo and My Flickr respectively) and Last.fm say they're building something for it too. Kudos to all those guys, only thing is it means I'm all out of ideas for what I can build with Facebook now. But I'm thinking on it. If is possible I'll try and use Facebook in Hackday, but since Facebook isn't a Yahoo or BBC thing I might not. The crux of the problem is this, I have far too many API's flying around my head trying to form that 1 shining star that will be a really really good idea, so I might just have to try and build all the crud that's whizzing around to make way for the brilliance. Hmmm. I think this blog post is part of that process, I'm getting rid of this, quite frankly, drivel, to make way for better things. Oh, and whilst I'm here another thing about Facebook, if you value your spare time don't signup, it will wipe what spare time you have, encroach on time you shouldn't give to Facebook and consume your every thought. Amazing it does that really.
I guess now that I've completed this drivel some brilliance may start to come through, oooo, I've just had an idea, probably rubbish tho....
