Let’s just say that when I first signed up for Twitter, I was less than impressed. Besides the cool SMS nature of the service, which I wasn’t using, it just seemed like a very limited group IM web platform to me. It didn’t seem like a very useful service to me either, since I basically […]
Reader David Beach alerted me about Chirp.com which offers a cool little screensaver application. Once you have downloaded and installed the software, you can add your accounts for Flickr, Twitter, and Facebook. Then once the screensaver kicks in you are treated to a nice slideshow that provides updates from your friends photos, statuses, and tweets
I (along with any of you who are MyBlogLog users) got an email on Friday from MyBlogLog. We knew they had recently released an API to private beta, we knew that developers were coding some cool features, but what we didn’t know is that they were planning to add Lifestreaming functionality directly on their site.
Hot off the heels of his tinkering with the MyBlogLog API, Kent Brewster released another tasty development morsel with his Blog Juice bookmarklet.

I read over at TechCrunch about a new Lifestreaming service called Iminta that just went into private beta. This one was started by some former Cnet’er.

A new version of the RSS Stream WordPress Plugin from Ricardo Gonazles was released. This new version allows for the addition of multiple generic feeds. Keep in mind that this plugin requires PHP version 5 so if you are on a hosted server you need to verify the version that your site is running on.
I read about the limited beta release of the MyBlogLog API over at Kent Brewster’s website. Kent points out that in the API they’ve introduced functionality related to the outside communities you setup within your MyBlogLog profile. If you haven’t taken a look at your MyBlogLog profile in a while, or aren’t sure if you’ve
Jerry Paffendorf whom I’ve written about in the past notified me about the Metaverse U Conference at Stanford which is coming up on February 16 & 17. He assures me that there will be some lively discussion around Lifestreaming among many other interesting topics. You can find the list of speakers here. There will also
Unless you were cut off from the web today you probably heard about Google’s Social Graph API. I was bombarded by those I follow on Twitter with the news. The enthusiasm for this announcement was much greater than that of Open Social from what I can tell. The timing is also great with the O’Reilly
I was IM’d this morning by reader Olivier (the developer behind Life2front) telling me of a link I should take a look at. So I head on over to the news story at Six Apart announcing their new Action Streams plugin for Movable Type. I’d like to welcome Six Apart to the Lifestreming party! (golf
