The Dent

"We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?" - Steve Jobs

This weeks episode of Micro @Monday was another interesting one. I’m not sure if I’d switch it on or not until I saw how it was implemented / looked, but the idea of showing replies to posts as comments on your blog, which @manton mentioned was possibly in the works, sounds very interesting indeed.

I really like the idea of more Pins as well. I’m a sucker for a simple achievement system like that. It’s one of the (many) reasons I like the Xbox over the Playstation. Achievements / points are far more appealing than the Playstation Trophy system. It also helps motivate me to be more active via the Apple Watch. I’ve got a bit of a streak going in daily / monthly goals there also.

While it’s a simple idea, I think it could have a surprising effect on general engagement on the platform.
