Day 4: Too Busy and Falling Behind
Last night I was busy hanging out with the cool kids at the GeekNorth Tweetup at Bukowski’s in Inman Sq. It was nice to meet @thinkjose, @technicalpickles and @pistachio (even though I got a tweet as @thingyslice and my colleagues didn’t believe I actually attended the event). It was interesting to learn what people are doing and how they are trying to make sense of all of these new media.
Progress: 19 sign ups, 81 to go
Back to the grind:
Hamsterster: I’m not making this up. A site dedicated to hamster and gerbil owners. The gerbil is often discriminated against so I was pleased to see they were included in this site. Sadly, my childhood hamster had a burial at sea a few decades ago so I am going to have to pass.
Virb: “A place that lets you put all of the things that make you you – photos, videos, blogs – in one place. So you can find friends (and friends can find you).” Sounds like alot of other places. I did add my blog feed so I can “be there”. Next.
Bebo: Recently acquired by AOL, Bebo is big with in Europe. In its words “Bebo is a social media network where friends share their lives and explore great entertainment”. Basically, it is an alternative to Facebook and MySpace. You can find me at http://www.bebo.com/FMD13. It is more center of the universe syndrome as they want to push to my blog rather than me pulling my blog into the site. I know I have friends who use this site. I wonder if they will spontaneously find me.
FriendFeed: Another service to aggregate all of your online feeds (i.e. Twitter, Blog, Digg). I like the idea as it is getting more difficult to keep track of things. I’m just wondering if this will get unreadable quickly as I add more content? We’ll see. My public page is: http://friendfeed.com/tangyslice
I hope I can add more tonight.
