26-Feb-2010A Movie About Chatroulette
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.
15-Feb-2010On Foursquare, nobody knows if you’re in the North Pole.
(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
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…
22-Jul-2009Yahoo! Updates (migration from Yahoo! 360)
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)
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…
29-Aug-2008Yahoo! Mash Shuts Down
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
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…
01-May-2008Clay Shirky at 2.0 Conference
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”
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….
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…
