I'm enjoying Zspace, Coach Albert's entreaties and the Zspace offerings finally motivated me to have a public blog. Big breakthrough for me. I used to have a private blog that I used the way I use evernote.com now. That experience got me thinking it would be nice to have a Zspace Press This! function. It's a little Javascrip Shortcut in your browser that grabs whatever you've selected on a web page along with the url and puts you into your blog editing interface. I was thinking it would be funny to name it ZeeIt! but than would resonate wrong for anyone that's been through puberty in Gringoland(USA). How about ZThis!, it sound like 'See This!'.. I might be getting ahead of myself here though.
Also, this admin interface is ok but most of the pages on Znet have messed up head tags. A lot of style and script information is between the html declaration and the starting head tag. I'm pretty sure that's a no-no. And the W3 validator supports this hunch. " Line 5, Column 61: document type does not allow element "script" here; assuming missing "head" start-tag" One of the loops in the html-generating code must be starting too soon, it's not in loop that spits out the head tags.
Besides making quoting on blogs more 'semantic' html-like and cleaning up a lot of repetititve tags, it would (potentially) make the debating in the comments more exact and worthwhile. I just had an epiphany - maybe a comment context could offer a special quoting button that would link to text and credit the author of the comment being responded too.
I was motivated to make these (possibly) time-saving suggestions after appreciating the QuickEdit Feature so much.
