Waze to go

Just installed Waze, the social traffic app, to find out about the traffic jam outside my office before it was on any of the regular traffic outlets. The social internet is so cool, and Waze is one cool aspect of it.

PowerPoint me

I have to do a PowerPoint presentation about myself. I have ten minutes and three slides. Should be plenty for a journey into my mind to explore the always-on connection to the internet.

So, I thought I’d put it on SlideShare, just because ‘You are what you share’.

Doing it the hard way

Spent the past few days downloading each individual page and image from a website in preparation for moving from joomla to WordPress. It’s going to be a pretty big job, but hopefully if I’ve planned it right, got all the content I need and get all the 301’s set up, it should all go smoothly.

Multi-share snapshot

I’ve been thinking about some kind of ‘Multi-share’ service where you can update to all your social networks at once (which of course is doable with FB and TW integration), but also to be able to share what you are doing on other sites such as ‘I’m watching…’ on Youtube, ‘I’m working on…’ on GoggleDocs, ‘I’m reading…’ this blog, etc. It would provide a snapshot of your online activity at any given time. It would build up an online profile for you that would be constantly updating with your most visited sites, topics you are interested in, activities you do, etc. and it would do this automatically. This is obviously different from the kind of profile you have on facebook which you make when you join and don’t update much expect for joining new groups. Maybe it could be an evolution for facebook since they already integrate with Spotify, Newspapers, etc. and already have all the people. It would just mean facebook working more closely with rival google for things like youtube, but it would make for more interesting personal profiles.
