After the removal of JetPack’s annual stats infographic, another victim of the new Automattic approach to handling the SAS business of WordPress.com is the deletion of any special email or web-notification of the ‘anniversary’ of subscription to their service.
This year I had to lauch the iOS WordPress app to see the display of my twelfth badge, obtained the last January 4th…
I think this is quite a goal … both for me as a die-hard user, and for them for keeping up one of the few platforms I have difficulties remembering being down or defeaced.
So happy anniversary to us!
Last week this breaking news about latest’s Automattic acquisition of Simperium appeared into my feed-reader.
Over Simperium’s blog now we can read:
We’re going to keep expanding Simperium as a tool for building apps. Adding Simperium to apps that can work from a local datastore lets you automatically synchronize data across different instances and platforms. This way of building apps feels natural, a model where the developer can focus purely on the data itself, not networking or APIs. Synchronizing data is just part of the problem though. We’ll be adding better support for things like binary syncing and collaboration, along with a wider variety of client libraries.
I am very confident on Automattic guys to make the right moves to improve their services and the ones provided by SimpleNote – of which I’m an avid & happy user. Let’s hope that my wishes will stay true …
