Day 14: Must not stop, Must not stop…
As I rapidly approach the midpoint of my journey, I am feeling a little like I did this afternoon on my 18 year old mountain bike with squeaky brakes. It seemed like a pretty straightforward trip and before you know it I was huffing and puffing up that last hill to SliceCentral.
It was a weekend full of laughter and tears as I added some newcomers to the list. So here they are:
Last.fm – This is a music community that is popular with my colleagues in the UK. I can see why people really like this site. It is a virtually limitless supply of music tagged by users and available as streamed audio. My first search was for the band U2 (I know, predictable). The site then delivered 8 or 9 related yet randomly selected songs by other artists. This will likely be one of the greatest slices list at the end of this adventure.
Kwippy – Basically it is a simple way to post your status to Gtalk and Yahoo messenger. Since I don’t use either of these services, this was a bust (after thinking I found one before Limeduck did).
Inviteshare – Are you having a tough time getting into that one special private beta? This is the motherload for people seeking and sharing for beta invitations. I signed up but will hold it in reserve for those desperate moments later this week.
Identi.ca – They unseated Plurk as the flavor of the week. I signed up over the weekend and it took less than 24 hours for the complaints to start flowing on Twitter about the site being down. Hellotxt added Identi.ca so this is a freebie for updates.
Del.icio.us – I can’t believe I forgot this site. I discovered Del.icio.us early last year and somehow forgot about them. Its simplicity is a strength when compared to other social bookmarking sites like Digg (I know, I know, some people believe Digg really isn’t a social bookmarking site). Regardless, I find this site very easy-to-use and expect to have it back in my daily rotation.
Enough for now. Tweet you later.
