  • A 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.

  • On 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…

  • Yahoo! 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…

  • Yahoo! 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…

  • Clay 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….

  • 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…
