For Micro.blog, I believe the right approach is to first introduce a simple “quote” feature. This UI would be streamlined to support quoting a sentence out of a blog post, with your own thoughts tacked on. It would fit with the spirit of easy posting in Micro.blog, but it would encourage more thoughtful posts and naturally scale up from traditional linkblogging.

Interestingly I found this via a microcast which I found via a comment here by Henrik Carlsson who collected some other microcast links. I guess this is a microblog post.
