    Identi.ca out of the gates 

    identi.ca Just a few ours after launch and my email box is chalked full of subscriber notices for the latest buzz on the interwebs. As of this posting they were still under 3,000 users, but growing quickly. The small number of users actually makes the public time-line fun.

    The Good:

    • OpenID Support
    • Open Source
    • Beginnings of an Open/Distributed Platform

    The Bad:

    • No Delete
    • No SMS support
    • No User search
    • No mobile version

    The Ugly:
    It’s written to run on top of a single MySQL instance without sharding/partitioning support which will have a hard time competing with twitter in the scalability department. The name is a bit awful, twitter is a much cuter name. Besides, what are we going to call an update? A Ident? Not quite as cute as a ‘Tweet’.

    I’m not really certain if this has the makings of a twitter-killer that can finally put an end to the fail-whale, but I’m really excited about the openness aspect, openid support and idea of a distributed micro-blogging platform. I would most enjoy identi.ca eventually being a WordPress plug-in and micro-blogging becoming an extension of my typical blogging and XMPP.

    Android conspiracy theories. 

    Everyone loves conspiracy theories, so I thought I would share the latest. Some of the developers who entered Google’s Android Developer Challenge (ADC) are accusing Google of giving MIT favorable treatment and an unfair advantage. Claims include extending the contest around MIT’s class schedule, providing students with devices (their not available to other contestants) and Google employees hand holding students.

    Android Password Safe 

    I’ve got my first working Android application together. It’s just a simple password safe with some decent features for a first release including:

    • 128 Bit AES Encryption
    • Password protected. Your password is needed to decrypt the data stored in the safe
    • All data is entrypted including notes, website link, description
    • Click through website link, will take you from your entry to the website.

    Here are a couple of screen shots to give you an idea of what the application looks like (Click to enlarge)

    Password Edit

    Login Screen

    Password List


    Plans for future versions include:

    • Fetching/Caching of favicons
    • Customizable encryption. Maybe 256bit AES, DES, etc.

    You can always download it and check it out for yourself. Let me know what you think and if you find any bugs or have ideas for improvements.

      Hi Steve. Great application. Maybe in the future can sync with another desktop application (1 password or keepassx). Congratulations.

      Hi Steve,
      I was thinking about upgrading to an Android phone but couldn’t find a password app in the store so this is great.
      One enhancement I would love would be to able to sync with a desktop app so secrets could be edited and accessed from both my phone and desktop.
      Thanks again.

      Hi Steve I would also like an application that can sync with a desktop application as well, also a search function would be good as this is used a lot in my existing password store.

      @Graeme this project is now part of OpenIntents and is not maintained by me. Check out http://www.openintents.org/en/node/205 I recommend filing a feature request with them.
