- Squished expression and the President of the United States (Mar 09, 2018)
Is Trump’s Twitter a Public Forum and the Limits of the Law by Eric Segall has me thinking quite a a bit about this question: WHAT IS TWITTER? I think about the Presidential Records Act and what it says about the things the President does in his official capacity. I think about the fact that…
- In 200 years someone will wonder what the heck AIM was. (Mar 01, 2018)
In 2003 I blogged this to AOL Journals: I once had a fellow student give me this aphorism which i really like: the more competencies you have, the more deviancies you are allowed. blogging via im makes it easy to blog and not get really distracted into writing something good. the downside is that it…
- GetGlue → tvtag → /dev/null (Dec 19, 2014)
Formerly GetGlue, tvtag is shutting down on January 1, 2015. You can get your data out.
- My Open Source Report Card (May 21, 2013)
- Modes of Sharing; May 16, 2013. (May 16, 2013)
- Tumblr, continued. (Jan 02, 2011)
Well, hello, happy new year. It’s time to get back in the swing of things after a long hiatus. Back in March of last year, I wrote a long piece about Chris and I blogging over at nuevaciudad.tumblr.com. Well, We have not stopped. Just assume the good posts are all by Chris and not me….
- Mom playing Words With Friends on her iPod Touch on the front porch (Nov 03, 2010)
My Mom played this game with my Sister on a little iPod touch here at the house. When Leah and I arrived here in November of 2009 we introduced more and more technology. Leah taught her to use her cellphone to send text messages. It was a blast to get messages from my Mom with…
- TPM Barnett on social networking technology (Feb 26, 2010)
It’s about the people and relationships first, technology second: I think one of the reasons why such connecting technologies get underappreciated or underused is that we manage to cast the whole process as some revolutionary new mode of behavior, when it’s not. The same interpersonal skills apply, it’s merely the scope and speed that changes….
- A Movie About Chatroulette (Feb 26, 2010)
I have not used it. This movie encapsulates why Chatroulette is cool, and also why I probably won’t ever use it. Waxy pointed to this video first, I think. Danah Boyd writes about what is extraordinary about the Chatroulette. There are a few curse words in the video.
- On Foursquare, nobody knows if you’re in the North Pole. (Feb 15, 2010)
(title of this post modeled on “On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.”) Puzzle & Processing maven Jim Bumgardner had quite a week! In his post Mayor of the North Pole today he detailed the shenanigans he got into playing with Foursquare, The Foursquare API, and curl. I saw him speak at BarCampLA 7…
- Stack Overflow Reputation (Feb 13, 2010)
It’s been about a year since I have been on Stack Overflow. Stack Overflow is a site for computer programmers of all skill levels to ask and answer questions. It works pretty great, and I have gotten some good answers there. Stack Overflow uses a point system to measure reputation as a number. It also…
- Yahoo! Updates (migration from Yahoo! 360) (Jul 22, 2009)
Moderately interesting. Another piece of data in the migration of everything on the web towards a Facebook-style or twitter-style update stream. Dear Yahoo! 360° and Flickr User, We’re contacting you because you shared your public Flickr photostream on Yahoo! by configuring photo-sharing in Yahoo! 360°. On July 23rd, as part of the closure of Yahoo!…
- Web pages are dead. Long live web pages. (If they’re made of people) (Sep 16, 2008)
Here’s how San Diego Blog looks today, not bad, and certainly better than it’s looked in a while: In November 2006 I sold San Diego Blog. I started it in 2003, SanDiegoBlog.com, and had a good run I think. But by 2006, I had moved away from its namesake city and was dealing with other…
- Yahoo! Mash Shuts Down (Aug 29, 2008)
Huh. Okay. You can see what my Mash profile looks like today only at http://mash.yahoo.com/websandiego. I wonder what Yahoo! will do in terms of social networks now? I think they’re focussed on OpenSocial, whose aim is to federate social software. I guess if you can’t build something standalone, build tools to embrace and extend other…
- Gmail Bozo Tag (May 07, 2008)
I subscribe to several mailing lists. A beelion years ago we used to call these things “listservs” — basically it’s an email address that is an alias for a whole group of people, and when you send mail to it, everyone on the list gets a copy. WebSanDiego was my mailing list for a long…
- Clay Shirky at 2.0 Conference (May 01, 2008)
I didn’t go to the Web 2.0 Expo last week, but I did read Sassy’s concise wrap up. Some video from the conference is out there, here’s social software thinker Clay Shirky: Here’s Clay’s writeup.
- Tweetclouds.com visualization of “artlung” (Apr 08, 2008)
A unique visualization of my twitter posts from tweetclouds.com – basically parsing by unique word, discarding “stop words” as described here. See it below. I like how replies to leahpeah appear: large and important and central. My first “tweet” – a post to twitter of 140 characters or less – was on October 12, 2006….
- Folksonomy-as-Activism (Mar 30, 2008)
I quite like this approach to bring attention to conferences with poor gender diversity, by Dori Smith of Backup Brain: Given that I’ve been ranting about this issue for several years now (boy, time flies when you’re having fun, don’t it?) and nothing has changed, I figured I’d try something new this time: creating a…
