Greenwood: Unfinished Microblogging System

A year ago I was working on a microblogging system and wrote a bunch of it, but I didn’t actually finish it.

When I realized it’s not what I actually want, I shelved it.

But interest in microblogging has grown since then — thanks to Micro.blog — and so I posted my code on GitHub just in case somebody else wants to fork it and do something with it.

The app is called Greenwood. Partly because I like the freshness it evokes — it’s a great name for a fresh, simple start — and partly because Greenwood is the neighborhood next to mine (I’m in Ballard), and I’ve been giving things Pacific Northwest names lately.

What can I do with Object Pascal?

Not your daddy’s Pascal language

Pascal when you hear someone talk about this programming language, oh man… that’s antique!

Well, quite a bit. I can understand that feeling. But let’s face some facts, with me in this article.

Pascal first appear in 1970, this is the first of its kind. One of the Pascal compiler was the main language that was use to create Apple Lisa and Apple Macintosh in the early day.

Object Pascal Extension appeared in Lisa and become MacApp Application Framework later in 1985. In 1989, Turbo Pascal with Object Oriented Extension released.

Let’s see how many Pascal dialects we have seen.
