  • Tweetclouds.com visualization of “artlung”

    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

    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…

  • Bebo: Yet Another Social Network

    I’m working with Facebook Apps this week and in looking at it I note that bebo.com apps are roughly compatible with them. So I signed up for Bebo. Anyone else in there? Here’s me: http://www.bebo.com/JoeC664

  • Play Misc-y for Me

    I’ve been reading and listening to lots about animation, and one of the more fun things has been Spline Cast, a podcast about 3-D animation. My favorite podcast right now is Dave Ramsey’s 1 hour version of his show. Don’t bother with the 3-hour version, it’s not really free. My previous favorite podcast is Harry…

  • Morning is the time for Miscellany

    Danah Boyd is surprised to be used as a pack mule for some great marketing. I think it’s the nature of the beast. When something hits your gut, it’s natural to try and promote it. Taking a step back and realizing you’re part of someone’s street team can be a little disorienting! Via The Beat,…


  • Yahoo Kool-Aid: Y! Mash and MyBlogLog

    Vernacular speech is pretty crazy stuff. “Drinking the Kool-Aid” is a metaphor for embracing something fully, often unthinkingly. This metaphor has its roots in either psychedelic drugs or mass religious suicide. Take your pick. Anyway, with that, I’ll cop to two new social-software, web two-point-oh oddnesses. The first is Yahoo! Mash, YASN. I’m not sure…

  • Seriously, Ryze?

    Email from @ryze.com. Subject line: Someone wants to network with you Okay, fine, I’ve not been to Ryze, but I thought it was cool a long time ago, and I don’t mind linkedin, or facebook, or even myspace messages, so I take a look at the email. Body: Someone wants to network with you: http://www.ryze.com/networkwithme.php…

  • Mathowie on “Myutterconfusionspace”

    Matt made me laff when he said: Next time I see Clay Shirky, I want a hug and a story of how it all makes sense somehow. Speaking of which, I miss Clay’s writings. Nothing new, no new newsletters or essays in a long time. Maybe he really is sitting on the mountaintop somewhere, explaining…

  • A Curious Character

    So it seems Caleb John Clark., sometime San Diegan and all-around-interesting guy, is still out in the world. He’s an east-coaster now — but I forgive him. Caleb’s one of the few people I have met a few times in person to talk about running communities. Others include Dennis Wilen and Matt Haughey, as well…

  • Social Software Makes Me Giddy

    Clay Shirky’s latest essay, A Group Is Its Own Worst Enemy, is so right on with what my gut, experience, and intellect tell me about groups and software that I find myself wishing I had written it. Some writing is so good it makes me jealous. Mind you, this essay is not for everyone. But…

  • But not to you.

    This Ryze Blog Social network map is pretty interesting. Well, to me.
