No, the word "login" is the login link.  If you see three bars you're on

So that's another part of the new web user interface which doesn't work
without letting Google-served scripts run amok in browsers.  Javascript
shouldn't be needed (it's very frustrating having page elements hidden
and moving around if your motor control precision isn't great) and, you
know, maybe people should be able to microblog from the web even if they
can't upgrade the browser to Firefox 22 or whatever yet.

Secondly and show-stoppingly, I didn't see an equivalent in the API for
the old /mjray/all page data.  Do you?

I don't know what /mjray/all does, is that your inbox?

Isn't the inbox for direct messages?  It's not that.

The /all pages on shows public activity from all those to
whom the user preceding the /all subscribes.  Here's an example:

I think the activity-inbox is all activity directed at you, this would include any public activity from people you follow, private activity from people you follow for which you have permission to see that activity, and messages directly sent to you.

If you post something on, it is by default not public.. you have to pick Public in the To: input field. I think this is a mistake, what's the point of microblogging when no-one can read your posts? Perhaps this is born out of the idea that facebook and such have such a terrible privacy track record, wants to have saner defaults. I expect we'll eventually get a setting for this, and for licensing your posts as well.
