Lifestream Posts & Pages for June 13, 2007

I came across an application called Journler after reading David Beach’s Lifestream. It looks like an interesting software based Lifestream application but unfortunately for me it’s Mac only. It’s also not the only Lifestreaming application that is Mac only. Another one that I had learned about a while back called Slifeshare is Mac only as well but today’s visit for this post made me aware of a Firefox extension that is now available as well, so I will have to try that service out tonite which looks very interesting.

Ross Mayfield wrote a post titled Status Contests and Attention Aggregators

From the post:

For Jaiku, having a client brings continuous partial presence to my laptop, that is far richer because people are lifestreaming (adding feeds from other tools like blogs to enrich their presence).

Speaking of Jaiku… Ken Camp is an avid user that has posted his involvement in the beta of the client for the Nokia phone.

From the post:

First, if you aren’t a Jaiku user today, you need to understand that Jaiku is what I call a lifestream aggregator. When you build your profile, you have complete control over what you wish to share of your lifestream of information.

Mathew Good has re-designed his site giving prominence to his Lifestream as well as creating some pretty cool collapsible menus.

Jerry Paffendorf let me know about his work on the Metaverse Roadmap as well as his R&D work in the realm of Lifestreaming and virtual worlds and discusses it in a post here.

From the post:

(Lifestreaming) Is incredible and meaningful transparency into people’s attention (into what they’re minds are processing), but coming from the virtual worlds angle, it makes me think of Herzog’s characterization of cinema verite, a movement to document reality straight-up, as “just the accountant’s truth.”

  1. Slifeshare produce un-useful feeds (video, app, etc)… Too few data to include them into lifestream properly.

    I advice to use Wakoopa, YouTube (or Yahoo! Video, Daylimotion), Cluztr, etc.

  2. Hi – This is Edison Thomaz from Slife Labs (Slifeshare). We are re-introducing Slifeshare next week on Monday, together with a new version of Slife.

    We are slowly moving away from a raw stream of web sites visited, focusing on what people actually find ‘interesting’ and are willing to share with others instead. In addition to other types, of course, like videos (YouTube for now), apps and music (if you are running the desktop client).

    Feel free to write with suggestions anytime, and keep up with the good work in the topic of lifestreaming!

  3. Hi Edison,

    Thanks for stopping by. Any update on when you plan on releasing a client for Windows?

  4. It’s almost done, we are going to work on it a lot after next week’s Slife Mac/Slifeshare release and then hopefully get a beta by the end of July.

Do you have a comment?
