Self Hosted Lifestream Gallery #1

This is a new feature here at the Lifestream Blog. As the Lifestreaming concept proliferates across the web, I am seeing more people using scripts, plugins, and other code to create some unique Lifestreams that are self hosted. I plan to spotlight some of these sites. This will hopefully be an on-going feature as I come across some great sites in the future. Also feel free to submit sites to me by using the contact form.

    Yongfook’s looks good! I’m really tempted to turn my site into a lifestream (and/or tumblelog) very soon and I was thinking of a linear look, but Yongfook’s layout is a good way to do it as well!

  2. I remember Yongfook. It’s most beautifull I ever see… Perhaps I will try to fake this way :op

    And I like Decafbad which provide same “instant” filter than my project… Nice work :o)

    Is there tracker code in the plugin? I havent even promoted that page yet!

    Thanks for featuring my site! The engine is freely downloadable, it’s an open source project run by me – although it’s not particularly user-friendly to install right now, probably more for developers who want to play around. When I get some time I’ll make it into a more mainstream package.

    You can get it via svn from:

    Nice list here Mark. Yongfook is easily the best implimentation of a lifestream I’ve seen. It’s actually a bit more than a lifestream, and goes in a direction I think more blogs should go. It’s basically making your site a lifestream. Maybe it’s just the structure, but I’m thinking he’s onto something there.

    @Neil I found out about your Lifestream from your tweet

    @Yongfook looks like folks really like your design. Thanks for providing the link to your code. I’m sure people will appreciate that.

    @Amos Yep, more and more people are turning to microblogging using Tumblr & Twitter. Our attention span keep shrinking and the time we spend to create content seems to be suffering as well. Not sure if that’s good.

    Ah cool! I post so much around the place sometimes i don’t know whether I’m coming or going.

    I plan on doing more with it, just wanted to see it in action!

    Yeah: Yongfook is the best implimentation of a lifestream I’ve seen. And I start to consider lifestream blog as a killer of blog. It represent the next level of blogging.

    So Prologue and BuddyPress WordPress plugins could be considerated a small but significant step in blogging evolution.

    IMHO there are some barriers for lifestream self hosted diffusion:

    – Technical. There are no easy solutions. And lifestream development requires strong skills.

    – A way to bring external conversation in. A Twitter dialogue will stay on Twitter even if I import my twits.

    – A logical one. My mum will not understand what she’ll find. And I use Rss for important news. So I’ll not visit the blog daily.

    As I suggest to you Mark, I’m in love with and italian blog
