Would love if Tarpipe came with an account for Ping.fm. So many useful things could be built with that. Any plans or any interest in adding support for Ping.fm? There's a whole crowd of users that would love you for that!

Thanks for feedback jyoseph,

This is a very interesting suggestion and we're looking into it. By the way, can you give some examples of usage scenarios of tarpipe + ping.fm?

Sorry for the late reply. I think ping.fm brings some interesting possibilities to the table.

Ping allows a user to set up custom triggers (user.triggers/user.tpost api) which allows them to post to specific services when that trigger is used. In addition to that, you have the ability to set a custom URL where ping will post your data. So as an example, if I send a post to ping w/ a certain custom trigger, that data is posted to my custom URL, from there I can do anything with it.

Anyway I guess I didn't really give any real specifics. :-/

With ping currently supporting updates via voice, image, and now video I think we could figure out some neat mashups. I have to get in there and roll up my sleeves a bit as I'm still learning my way around the tarpipe interface.

btw, here's a dump of one of the posts made to my custom URL from ping, not sure if this really helps but this is the data ping sends along with a post:

Hi again jyoseph,

So, by what you're saying, the idea is to have a tarpipe receptor for ping.fm, so that you could ping to a tarpipe workflow, right?
