Weekly Ubiquity Focus: Email Command

It’s time to start improving the built-in Ubiquity commands! Since the launch of Ubiquity last August, huge improvements have been made. But most of these new changes haven’t improved the commands in any way. Aside from a few bug fixes, the “wikipedia” command, the “twitter” command and others are still the same as they were back in August.

We are starting a weekly focuses so that everyone can concentrate their efforts on a single piece of funcationality for a week or two to make it really sing. The first one is email.

For details of how to participate, head over to Abi’s blog, who is leading the charge.

i am still not sure what ubiquity is all about. it seems like a commandline tool for the browser which swallows ‘fuzzy’ commands. or is it just sth like quicksilver for the web? whith predefined queries? aimed at beginners or powerusers? VERY interesting project though.


me too. i have no idea. Please explain.

Mr. Raskin,

Love what you’re doing with Ubiquity and semantic computing. Really, thank you. Just as a small bit of niggling HTML, though, could you possibly make your header logo link back to the top page of your blog? Usability incorporates interface idioms, too. :) (Lecturing a Raskin on usability…bloody it all, where did I go wrong?)

Regards,
Wyatt


Dear Aza,
I read your Dad’s piece on model flight and it gave me a new insight. So, when I saw this*, I thought, I wonder if Aza has picked up anything by osmosis.

Maybe one can do this now but I would like to highlight a portion of a web page to be quoted in an email and also add my own comments. Something like being able to edit the prefix to the link, followed by the link, followed by the highlighted portion of a web page. Are you totally confused now?

…..addendum
I know you can do all of this now when the email composition window comes up but it would be nice to be able to do it one fell swoop. Something like:

email this to myfriend.com Hey friend, you might be interested in this because Ubiquity is cool.

I am a new Ubiquity user so this might be available now and I am not aware of it.

I’m one of those people who thinks its rude to answer the phone in the middle of a conversation. It’s worse when it’s during dinner. It’s even border-line rude to just check the phone to see whose calling before slipping it away. I want to know whose calling before I go pocket diving.

I agree, it was about time to start improving the built-in Ubiquity commands! Thank you for the hard work, like this we can enjoy it even more!

Thank you for another essential article. Where else can you get this kind of information to write full way? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.


No? U better written. Reading this post reminds me of my old roommate! He was always talking about it. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!


Aw, this was a message that was really good. In theory I d like to write like this too taking time and real effort to make a good article . but what can I say . I procrastinate a lot and never seem to do something.


Great stuff from you, man. I ve read your stuff before and you are too superb. I love what you ve got here, love what you say and how you say it. You make it entertaining and can still stay smart. I can not wait to read more from you. This is really a great blog.


I thought it was going to be a boring old post, but it really compensated for my time. I will post a link to this page on my blog. I am sure my visitors will find that the most useful


Great post! I m just beginning in community management communication marketing and trying to learn how to do it well resources like this article useful. As our company is based in the U. S. , it? S all a bit new to us. The example above is something that worries me as well, how to show your own enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in this regard


Hrmm that s weird, my comment ate. However, I would say it is good to know that someone else also mentioned this as I have trouble finding the same information elsewhere. This was the first place that gave me the answer. Thank you.


I must admit that this is one great insight. Surely gives a company the opportunity to get on the ground floor and really take part in creating something special and tailored to their needs.


Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a very good platform you are using. I m currently using WordPress for some of my sites but looking to change one of them similar to yours as a test platform. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?


With the whole thing that seems to be building within this subject matter, all your viewpoints are generally somewhat refreshing. Even so, I appologize, but I can not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it exhilarating none the less. It appears to everybody that your opinions are generally not completely justified and in actuality you are generally your self not really wholly confident of the argument. In any event I did appreciate examining it.


An fascinating dialogue is worth comment. I feel that you must write extra on this topic, it won t be a taboo subject but usually people are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers


Super blog post, I count on updates by you.


The beauty of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and skin the site in such a way that with very little effort one would never notice what it is making the site tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.


This is the perfect blog for anyone who wants to know about this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want. HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!

Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it is nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks.
