Twitter Me This – Why Hyper Connected People *Need* Twitter

Tuesday, February 13, 2007

4 Comments

Last week, I had a rather enjoyable lunch with Jeff Barr, Chief Evangelist for Amazon Web Services (aws blog). He mentioned twitter as his way of “broadcasting” updates to his colleagues and acquaintances about what he’s up to. It’s a one-to-many way to broadcast what’s up in your life, and keep people informed about you […]

I have a new desktop, and it’s NOT from google. Of all things, it’s a social networking site that actually delivers on the promise of what that means–a simple, fun way to keep tabs on people you know and people you care about. Yep, it’s Facebook. In the last few weeks, I’ve been so passionate […]

Cue up the Guns ‘N’ Roses in your music player, as TagJungle crept stealthily out of beta sometime late last week. The site, which works hard to bring relevancy to the blogosphere, has a clean implementation and a nice ajaxy interface. Simple to use and full of good feeds and tools, the site looks like […]

One of my passions surrounding the “Web 2.0” movement is the idea of “myMedia”, or media that is created and customized just for me. This encompasses knowing the media I’ve liked before, and the things I want to accomplish or see or experience, and the things people I know and trust are doing and liking. […]

Go figure that Firefox keeps giving me problems when I open my googledocs spreadsheet. Internet Explorer (which I have happily stopped using) works fine, but Firefox cuts off after a few rows, no matter what I do… (grrr). Help me, Google!

For me, the formula for a good subscription-based web application comes down to a few things: Valuable data/information, very simply accessed (display & UI must be clean, precise) Relevant tools become available as I browse, helping me learn & use more (even if it leads me offsite) Simple cost-structure, equal to my usage. Some users […]

I track a lot of websites and blogs–both from people in the recruiting industry, and from business leaders I follow, businesses in the local area, and top-talent in the area that I like to track because I respect their opinions. VIDEO: See Chris Wetherell, Google Reader Engineer, introduce the new version of the feed reading […]

Jibberjobber personal network management tool has added new features which allow you to graphically see your network, and how you go to know them.

I realized a very simple way to improve LinkedIn this morning. How great would it be if you could create and save a search for specific types of people in your LinkedIn network (say, “SOX accountant” or “Unix Systems Administrator”) and specify how many layers away from you that you want to search. Then, if […]
