Scriptfrenzy – The challenge

Scriptfrenzy – The challenge

Remember when I wrote 50,000 words in one month? Today’s challenge is a little different. From tomorrow, and for the next 30 days I will have the task of writing 100 pages for a script within 30 days. That’s about three pages a day and it shouldn’t be too hard. I’ve done a lot of transcribing so I know dialogue when I hear it. I did also have to study it in uni. Now we’ll see what the result is….

Friendconnect

Friendconnect

Today I got round to installing friendconnect on this blog. This means that everyone that has a gmail account can log in and become part of the community sprouting from this blog. You can also comment about things in general now. There’s a new layout now, as a result information is easier to find and the whole site should load quite a bit faster.

The re-tweet is an easy way to pretend you’re listening.

The re-tweet is an easy way to pretend you’re listening.

A lot of people love the re-tweet because they believe that it is a fast and effective way to tell both their followers on twitter as well as the person being retweeted that they are listening or that they thought this was a interesting point. This is true in a number of situations but this was not always the case. There was a time on twitter when people who liked what you linked to would comment on the topic and…

Social media as a lifestyle choice, rather than a stop gap

Social media as a lifestyle choice, rather than a stop gap

One of the biggest ironies of the social media is that those whose profession it is to get brands and companies to set up a presence within the social media environment themselves see it as a waste of time, and no substitute for what most people would refer to as real life, real life being the life that you live in the physical world rather than sat behind a computer, or online. Almost everyone you ever talk to will tell…

A “Transcribe this” button for seesmic videos

A “Transcribe this” button for seesmic videos

Something I would love to see on Seesmic, and which would encourage me to use it more is a “transcribe this” button for when I record certain videos. The logic is simple. Sometimes we discuss things that we would like to see discussed but not everyone wants to listen to us explain our idea. That’s why it would be a nice feature. As an add on you could then add that video to your blog, with a transcript for quick…

The twitter schedule – updated

The twitter schedule – updated

For two years I’ve been using twitter and during that time I have spent far too much time on the site. As a result I built many friendships. Always paying attention to twitter, even when mobile was a great way of using twitter in the past, but due to people having less time every day to tweet I am adopting a new twitter usage model. I am now scheduling when I will be active on twitter. If you want to…

The Facebook and Friendfeed lifestye

The Facebook and Friendfeed lifestye

Facebook and friendfeed are now the same thing. They both provide exactly the same thing but for different audiences. Facebook is a network of real friends, where you share everything with those that count on you as a friend. That’s where you get party pictures, relationship statuses and more. Friendfeed is where you go to get world news, current affairs and industry information from people you have yet to meet. Both of them now allow you to filter your information…

Friendfeed Notifier fun

Friendfeed Notifier fun

Now that twitter has gone mainstream and fewer people are obsessive about it I’ve been trying to walk the gang plank and arrived on friendfeed. It’s an rss aggregating site, much like facebook where you have none of your friends, but don’t worry. You can populate it with various news rss sources for colour. That’s not the reason for this blog post. What I wanted to really tell you about is the friendfeed notifier thing. It’s a useful application that…

The New Facebook

The New Facebook

Facebook is now a mixture between friendfeed and twitter. You get videos, photographs, status messages and more from all your Real life friends networks. One of the most powerful new features is that by using the group feature we can now see our friends according to a number of settings. If I want to look for Uni friends I click on that list of friends. If I want twitter friends I press on that list. If I want Geneva friends…
