Here is my empire. - 5880
"A tweet arrives. It contains a URL.
- is it useful? am I sold?
I click the link.
Which opens Chrome.
Was it blocked at the host level?
- (if it’s on business insider, nyt, wall street journal or a gawker site, I see this)
Have I already read it?
- Great! Close the window, consider sharing, or converse with the person who just tweeted the link.
Is it something I might read later, but cannot read now?
- Click “posthoc” to send to ReadItLater/Pocket, which is automatically scooped into Pinboard with one fewer step and an additional layer of redundancy. Sometimes it’s nice to skim Pocket to see what’s in there, especially while knowing it can all be archived/deleted with no worry.
Is it ugly?
- Reformat with Readability’s “Read Now”.

Or… do I find I’m already a paragraph in?
If so, I tap “Reading”. An API call is made:
* Reading adds the link to my reading log on http://reading.am/maxfenton
* Reading posts a tweet on my @maxisreading account
* Reading sends the link to Pinboard…"

The False Novelty of Making Reading 'Social' - Alan Jacobs - Technology - The Atlantic
"So what is it that sites like Findings and Readmill do? I would say that they enable asynchronous interactive digital commentary. That's a mouthful; it's a lot easier to say that they "make reading social." But easier in this case is definitely not better. All these digital possibilities are turning the old and familiar experience of reading on its head, and the language we have to describe the changes hasn't even begun to catch up. It needs to start."
