Thinking further about my post yesterday Time to Iterate on Notify NYC and Weather Alerts and why a permalink for each notification could be helpful, I sketched a couple quick ideas. The main point of focus is that people want to pass along important info, however as it gets passed along things might get lost in translation. That’s why having a main reference point like a permalink with date stamp is helpful. Other consideration to possibly include is a hook for updates. That way when a person wants to follow up as information is provided there’s one location.
· permalink the source of truth
· cognizant of 140 characters but messages shouldn’t be limited to that constraint
· people want to pass info along, messages might get messed up along the way
· updates to original notification
