bad signal WARREN ELLIS I have a couple of important things to finish today, so just notes: * Tweetr: best desktop app for Twitter I've found so far. * 8hands: very interesting desktop app. Windows-only right now, as it's in early Alpha, and generally Not Right Yet: but it's a desktop app that monitors multiple social networks for you. I have mine watching MySpace, Flickr and Facebook simultaneously, reporting new events and messages in realtime. Could be massively useful in the long term. At least for me. * Very into desktop apps right now. Pownce's desktop app finally started working properly the other day; its most interesting use is as a system to push files between a group of friends, much more smoothly than regular IM achieves it. I'm there as http://www.pownce.com/ellis right now, so if there's anyone I know who's still using it, ping me. * (My eyesight still gives out when scanning the list of people following me on Twitter to see if there's anyone I know there.) * Am still amazed at how busy The Club Of Mars is. Glad to see 800-odd of you having fun with it. http://clubofmars.ning.com * I'm at the pub and don't have URLs, google the things. * Trying to stop myself from buying a bunch of domain names -- I don't have time for new projects. * Except that Ariana and I spent the weekend (across 8 hrs time difference) testing a new idea I specced out the other week, and we might get that up on its feet for private testing in another week or so. And I need to come up with a name for that today, too. Gah. * (She basically smashed three or four systems together to create a slowchat: asynchronous rolling group conversation -- like a super- charged version of the old IRC always-open channels people used to live in. Anyone remember that? Where you used to sign in when you got up and sign out when you crashed? Or, of course, the old chat room on WEF, which served the same purpose for many.) --------------- from mobile device ...................
