> Oh well, the real story here is an app.net link at #1 on HN.

I can't tell if this is sarcasm or a serious comment. Could you elaborate on this comment? I don't get why a link by app.net would be news worthy.

My understanding is app.net is trying to be a paid version of twitter. There was/is much debate whether it could ever take off. This is the first time I've ever seen someone link to it. Although now I realize that the link is to the app.net cofounder so that doesn't really say much.

OP works there according to his twitter feed.

I guess because it's not twitter!
