Social connectivity

August 7, 2008

No thought, however trivial, should go undigitized – or so it seems these days….
 
http://twitter.com/
Informs us that “real life happens between blogposts and email”
– and you want to share this, you wonder? — really?
 
“you wouldnt send an email to a friend to tell
them that you are having coffee?”
 – No, I wouldnt!
 
“But what about the people that want to know about the
little things that happens in your life ?”
 — they join nsa?
 
“Meet Carla – she is addicted to her mobile phone,
blogs – and has contacts all over the world?
She heard about twitter – and was sceptical …
But signed on anyway ..
The little messages on twitter from her friends
and coworkers painted a whole new picture,
that she had never seen before ..
Soon she became a friend of twitter and posted updates
to twitter”
 .. all the time, we imagine ..
 
twitter messages works because they are small,
only 140 characters.
By asking the question “what are you doing” – Carla
found that twitter brought her closer to people
that matters to her …
 
One service like that should be enough, but not so…
Identi.ca is a microblogging service brought to you by Control Yourself, Inc.. It runs the Laconica microblogging software, version 0.5.0, available under the GNU Affero General Public License.
on tumblr.com they inform us, that:
tumblelogs are the easiets way to share yourself …
– do you really want to?
Chloe Higashida  writes …
“Be kind to everyone. You may not be able to save a person,
but at least you weren’t one of the people who didn’t try.”
Good for you Chloe, but seriously do you even know me?
http://posterous.com/ is really cool.
Email anything to post@posterous.com
attach anything …
we reply instantly with your new yourname.posterous.com blog …
If you can use email, you can have your own website to share thoughts and media with friends, family and the world.
No setup or signup ..
– great, we hated these nauseating experiences of filling out all those ridiculous forms …
later in posterous it reads …
Autopost to everywhere
Just set up your other accounts here. The next time you post to posterous, we will instantly autopost everywhere else
Flickr, blogger etc … — how do you do that? I have never given my login to you guys ?
And are emails safe ?
Email can easily be spoofed, but Posterous has come up with some ways to figure out if the email we receive comes from you. If we think it might not be you, we ask you to confirm the email before we post it. No matter what, you always get an email notification of every post we put online for your blog, with an easy link to remove the post if you didn’t do it. And remember, if you’re running into problems with people abusing your account, help is just one email away.
— wonderful ,,,,,
“How much space do I get?”
You get up to 1 GB of space for personal use. If you need more, tell us.
— Oh boy, I remember when 1 kb was a lot ,,,, 🙂

So I tried this, see my blog at

http://www.simonlaub.posterous.com
And google is so yesterday
http://www.cuil.com/

I entered my own name — and it immidiately gave me:
http://plazes.com/users/238729
I had completely forgottan that I had signed up to a service that would track me down forever ….
This is expected considering that the folks behind Cuil are mainly ex-employees of Google who have lots of experience in the area of search. In additional, they claim that the number of pages indexed by the Cuil search engine is 3 times more than Google and 10 times more than the remaining key players, Microsoft and Yahoo.

with all these blogs, twitters and what have you
You must have services that bring your life together – so you go to swurl.
http://www.swurl.com/
I.e. url: simonlaub.swurl.com
Especially like their timeline, where one can really read all about what one has been up to:

Facebook is so yesterday …


Ajax dag i Bruuns Galleri, d. 15 Maj 07

May 16, 2007

Herlig dag med mange gode indlæg af Jeppe Rørbæk og Niels Harvig.

Og herlig humor Niels Hartvig har – Hvilket måske ikke er så sært når man ser at han har været nr. 2 i standup:
