Looks like Alvin has been drinking his Innis & Gunn and brought about a new little tweak to the user interface (UI). The tweak is a new search box in the bottom right of the timeline. Some of you “old schoolerz” may remember the little magnified glass that was there previously. Now it’s jut a box that says “I love plurk” with a more straight forward “Search” written afterwards.
I’m glad to see this function back it’s always great to search your name and see what people are saying about you. It’s also helpful to search an interest of yours to find other plurkers who are also into it.
In case you don’t know who Alvin is he’s the genius behind plurk’s intuitive UI. If you really want to get to know the guy beyond the fact that he eats puppies I recommend you read his blog Daily Misery. Also while you’re there you may wish to also view Alvin’s position on why the interface scrolls the way it does. You can read it here and it’s called The Case of Left to Right
Stay tuned for more things plurk,
