The Importance of Being Followed

March 2, 2009
By

In my typical heel dragging fashion I’ve waited a week to jump into a debate that is by now probably completely out of the minds of most who were involved.  Although really, that isn’t quite fair to myself.  The subject of the value of followers and their role in my twitter experience as a...

Overwhelmed by E-mail: New Year’s Resolutions for Gmail

Overwhelmed by E-mail: New Year’s Resolutions for Gmail

I am google’s biggest fan. No really.  Google’s seemingly, endless capacity paired with its A+++ search tool is a hoarder’s dream come true. Exhibit 1:  The 2,000+ e-mails in my inbox for my main (personal) e-mail account. Who knows how many more e-mails I’d find, archived away, if I ever were to click on...

Get Rich Quick with Web 2.0 (Part 1): Network & Chat at the Watercooler – A How-To Guide on LinkedIn and Typing (I mean, Twittering)

I’m simply boggled by the multitudes of articles out there that are dedicated to teaching people how to use “social media 2.0.”  If people take the time to sign up for the site, enter their name, their e-mail, create a password, verify that they’re human(ness)…don’t you think they should be smart enough to know...

Cultural Creators vs. Cultural Consumers

I just saw Lawrence Lessig on Charlie Rose. He’s a law professor and author with close connections to Obama. And he’s a lot smarter than me. His new book is called Remix (available soon under a Creative Commons license). He proposes a dramatic revision of copyright law worldwide to fit how information is used...

Why Most People Wouldn’t Live With Me: The Rate Josh Wood Story

November 18, 2008
By

It’s not because I’m messy, moody, dependent on others for transportation or a food stealer; it’s because sometimes I wake up early to do school work, get hopped up on caffeine and decide to make a website about you while my oatmeal microwaves. This morning as my room mate, the titular Josh Wood, snoozed...

Talking To Yourself: The Invisible Tweeter

When I was just a wee high-schooler I got an internship (through quite a bit of nepotism) at a record label.  This internship lasted only a week or two before I was let go.  Apparently there was actually no work to be done there and they decided having too many interns was annoying.  Anyways,...

Virtual Worlds Forum – Postponed!

I wish I lived in London. If I did, I’d want to go to the Virtual Worlds Forum that was originally scheduled for October 6 – October 8, 2008.  Unfortunately, a shooting caused the event to be postponed until further announcement.  Maybe someone can buy me a pass for when it’s rescheduled?  Or, maybe...

Recommendation: Fetch

Recommendation: Fetch

Having tried other FTP/SFTP clients, I’ve found that Fetch works the fastest for me and does not crash my computer. (…always a plus when you’re working with an iBook G4 that’s cracked right where the power adapter plugs in and, therefore, needs a little coddling to stay charged!)

embarrassing screen name talk.

September 14, 2008
By

what was your first screen name? i hope it was something along the lines of: “anfbeachbumxoxo14″ or “tennistar4″ or “doggyluva33.” If you are traditional and just had a “Initials/Birthday/Year” then don’t even bother posting because you need to reevaluate your personality and creative side. inspiration: KTB506 (kimbo the bimbo + address)
