My little idea about creating a site that highlights the people that make the social web, well social, has run into a little hitch… I don’t have time to post what going on all over the web as fars as what people are commenting on, digging up, blogging, twittering, and so forth.
So I decided that maybe I need some help on this. I need a couple of bloggers who want to do the same thing I want to do of which is to create a site about the people who make the social web social.
I can’t discuss all the details because I am still working on how i will work. Not sure if it will be hosted hear on WordPress (I hope it can be) or somewhere else. I want some sort of revenue sharing between what I hope will be 5-7 bloggers. The only problem with revenue sharing is that the blog isn’t making anything and probably won’t until at least a year and a half of blogging to get people interested.
Well, anyway, if you are interested, just leave your name on the comment section. Hopefully within the next3-4 months Social orb will b back on the scene with interviews, interesting Twitter profiles, reviews, pics, and more about the people on the web who make the web social.
Social orb is on FriendFeed as well as Twitter. There will be some updates starting in the new year on anything cool I find around the internet town.
At long last, someone has cracked one of the technology world’s biggest mysteries — the identity of Fake Steve, a sharp-tongued blogger who had tech aficionados in stitches with a satiric diary purporting to be from Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
Now for the really good part: Both the blogger and the guy who outed him are from staunch bastions of Old Media, Forbes magazine and The New York Times.
In a story published on Monday, Brad Stone of the Times outed Dan Lyons, a technology editor at Forbes, as the author of “The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs,” a daily account of events in the tech industry as seen through a caricature of Jobs. The blog can be found at http://fakesteve.blogspot.com/.
Wow. I didn’t really know about this blog except for a brief post on Digg and maybe being on the front page a couple of times. While I don’t find this that interesting, it does involve the social internet and how people interact with each other… so how can I not add it to the archive?
Yet another top WordPress blog post on the wonders of which is Harry Potter and the Deathly (real word?) Hollows. Considering that the movie is out and the book comes out today (Saturday 07/21/07) I am sure the posts and articles on this book will continue into next week.
The blog post does go into what is believed to be the ending of the book. People dead, people alive, people married with children… All of this for download. I guess the big question of the day is will this effect sales? Will someone buy it today and then post the WHOLE book?
Personally, I think the book is a collectible and kids, as savvy as they are about being online, will probably want the physical book in their hands. Then again, when it comes to kids, who knows. I also wonder if this kind of thing will push the web further and further into the sites of lawyers and lawsuits.
Well, that is my comment… here are some other people”s thoughts on the blog post:
26 comments in total. Go check it out and voice your opinion.
One of the top posts on WordPress today. I don’t know if this is true or not… but for me what is interesting is that on a blog that allows comments, the blog post in question doesn’t have any (commenting closed).
So now I am wondering what really happened on this blog today cause this is sort of unusual.
To be continued…
For some reason, I feel that WordPress just exploded or great blog posts or something…. maybe its just me. On top of that, allot is going on the web as well. From Harry Potter to Green Sneakers.
This blog is supposed to be a report (and a opinion) on what is going on with the people of the community that is now the internet and I have SO FAILED you.
Well, that is about to change.
Yeah, I know, some of you guys think my website is soooooooooooo lame. Who wants to read comments of some guy replying to a blog post? LOL Well, many years ago I discovered that its those comments (along with the original post whether it be a blog, a message board post or a “normal” website) help create what I call a KNOWLEDGE BASE.
All sorts of info can be found in the comments as well as the article itself. Some articles are edited BECAUSE of the comments.
I just think with individuals blogging, individuals commenting, individual sharing photos, music and art along with individuals creating new ways to interact socially on the web… well, I think somebody ought to record what is people are saying and doing. Its entertaining, educational and you can really see what is going on in culture and life.
So watch out world (the internet world that is), I’m a comin at ya!!!
Looks like the chipmunks are back with some sort of 2007 look (that I do not like). Go ahead and click the link… now come back (please)… what is that?Someone decided to turn Simon into Hip-Hop Hooray for some reason? He could have stayed in the nerd look…
Well, here are my picks for best comments in this blog post:
