Entries in Google (27)
As a blogger I tend to Google my name time to time to see who uses my content and generally - where does my name appear. I also spend more time on Facebook this month learning its dynamics all over again, and just came accross TouchGraph Facebook app which graphed my contacts very accurately.
As you can see my FB 'friends' are based in Hungary, at Global Voices and around my UK social media activities, not so much in Poland, which pretty much represents my on-line activity and flags up an action point - be more active in Polish circles on FB!:) Will do!
Secondly, I did the Google graph, which came with various results, but I think this one is the most accurate.
I know how I want those graphs to change, and as I am rethinking my blog strategy, and generally social media presence they all come quite handy. I think this and similar tools are great to give us quick view on what our social media landscape is. The more the better!;)
Some of you have probably seen already that Google is sending new Google Wave e-mail with additional pack of invites. My first reaction was to post it on Global Voices mailing list and on Twitter. In seconds they were gone, and I was happy I could give then away as I enjoy sharing. But something @agakwiat said made me think: do we always share? do we live culture of sharing? For some of us it's obvious that certain information is there to be passed on others, to improve and simply contribute to their lives. However it is MY assumption!
We do live in different tribes, live different stories, and I am not sure we all understand what sharing culture of social media is about. Myself, I very rarely come across someone who does not have this attitude, but it happens very, very rarely and is usually rooted in their lack of experience.
Do you share?
I did not pick it up, it was Blogus Pospolitus again, but it made my day! It's the light in the tunnel of my pretty challenging life recently!
I am very, very excited about Google Wave, but the way it changes our communication seems linear to me - we will speak faster and host discussions on our blogs so we will loose the moderators role a bit. Not that I want to put aside the marvelous work of many Google Wave developpers, no - I still think you guys and ladies are doing great job!
However this development made me realise how close we are to something I always dreamt of - some of you will probably find me crazy at this point;) - blogging via microchip in my head. Watch the TED clip! The point when the student is taking photos with his hands is exactly what I want to do - I want to be able to blog, take photos, record podcast WITHOUT any additional devise! I want to be albo to walk the streets and have an 'on and off button' in my head - I would love to be able just to think 'I am starting to blog now' and have that happening on my wordpress site; but hey - if a middle solution is to have to say it out loud - I could cope with strange looks;)
Can someone please, please, please build it and do it fast! I am loosing out on a lot of good content simply because I have no time to put it down 'on paper'.
BTW, would love to see what you think - solutions like that have huge ethical consequences!
This Sixth Sense stuff is awesome!:)
