We're joining the Qaiku project

I've been beta testing the new conversation-oriented microblogging service Qaiku, and after some negotiations we today signed a cooperation agreement to join in developing the site:

Qaiku is a microblogging service, focusing strongly on discussion. Microblogging differs from ordinary blogging by the length of the posts, more topical content and automatically published micromedia, such as Flickr photo stream, Audioscrobbler stream etc. Allowed lengthier comments to the brief posts make discussion possible.


Technically Qaiku has been built on Midgard 2 platform. Some of the features Nemein will develop for Qaiku will be released in the open source Midgard 2 project.

On my list of priorities is a public API, OpenMicroBlogging support and location import from various services like Fire Eagle and Plazes. I hope to get hacking on these as soon as I return from the Linköping Midgard Gathering. Will be fun!
