Social Networks

You have many homes on the internets? I too have many homes on the internets.

  • Twitter – It’s like IM except the server is dead and it is blocked at work and I get robots following me all the time. I rarely check this because I like so much more.
  • – Twitter, but open source and distributed, using webhooks, microformats, FOAF, everything good and juicy and wonderful. On it all the time.
  • Diaspora – A reaction to all the worst excesses of Facebook.  Open source and distributed, designed for privacy.
  • Linked In – MySpace for people with jobs
  • – the grandfather and still king of social bookmarking. where the true nerds hang.
  • Rapleaf – a great idea for webs of trust ratings.
  • Flickr – probably still the best photo sharing site, but I’m a little miffed that they only show the last 200 photos.
  • Working With Rails – LinkedIn for people who use ruby on rails.
  • Dopplr – for travellers. If you and I are going to be in the same place at the same time, we should meet up.

  • FriendFeed – A condensed version of whats going on on every other service.
  • Ffffound! – I have no idea, but it’s full art and wonder and I’m making all of my wallets from pictures I found there these days.

But wait, there's more

  • Just kidding, nothing's related to this.
