RE: The best thing that has happened to me on steem
Thanks for your contributions. I noticed you had some action in the steemtipper launch. That app is kickass.
I'm hoping to learn more about developing for Steemit. Are there any resources you would recommend for me to start learning?
If you ever get a chance and feel inspired, I was called by a few Steemians to help with a condenser pull to update the whitelist for embeds. My time is scarce however these days (I have two kids with handicaps.) They called for help to Utopian and got rejected.

I thought about attempting to pull it to add a wide variety of embeds and embed options. I think it would make Steem kick the competition in the nuts if it could safely embed a variety of media. I have a whole list of services generally considered safe and licensed. It's time that I'm short on, and I don't know how to code for Steemit yet.
I'm totally in agreeance with you about off-chain tools. I'm on the same page about it. I'm too looking for ways to break the fish tank. I think Steemit is wonderful but it's still a very clustered community and the outside world has very little awareness about what's going on within in.
I'm actually thinking of having to pay a monthly service fee to parse my blog to RSS so I don't have to do it manually anymore. Steemian used to do it, but it's now down. The sad thing about blockchain developments is many of them go offline a lot faster than those on the regular internet.
What changes did you make on steemit that went live? I noticed the Reddit share is working now. I also noticed the confirm screen now. The views feature is still gone. Sad about that one. Steem posts desperately need a variety analytics.
What are some more things you plan on working on? I'm following you now. :)
