On a side note, it was great to meet you at Dojo 4 and I look forward to hearing more about your startup!
There are a couple of minor issues: first, it appears that you can't rename a goal. Second, it shows up on my iPhone's menu as "Choice By". I think maybe a shortened name would have worked better, or maybe I just haven't gotten used to App Store apps having their names truncated.
Overall I'm impressed.
I think you got carried away in this post. Most people enjoy trying new products, and we often go a little crazy over their cool features at first. I suggest writing a follow-up article quickly, because people are reading the article and thinking that you've not only changed your loyalty, but have changed a whole slew of opinions. Sometimes meaning gets lost in the excitement.
As good of an attempt to explain this it is, it's still a major disappointment to have the site down for more than a couple of hours. And it does make me want to look for alternatives.
I'm going to try to get HTTPS with a self-signed certificate up and running soon, as I think it's the best option.
After reading your post and thinking about security, I went into OS X network preferences and deleted all but a couple of my remembered networks, and unchecked the option to remember all networks I join. I don't want to pop open my laptop at Xtreme Bean and have someone snag my password from an ajax app before I even realize I've joined an unsecured network.
I've been thinking about security a lot lately. I've been reading Cryptonomicon, and on Saturday I learned how to use OAuth for twitter authentication, and in the process spent a few hours reading about how OAuth works. It's fascinating. The article below provides a pretty good and relatively easy to digest description of the protocol.
BTW, You've blogged on four consecutive days. Way to go! And I got to say, Headless is one of the better blog themes I've seen.
