Bloggers Love Self Reflection

I do so enjoy self-reflection. I’d promise this is my last reflective look of 2009 but I’m afraid I’d make a liar out of myself. Off to the right of this blog you’ll see the Top 10 posts according to the WordPress Popularity Contest widget as well as the Top 10 posts according to PostRank. [...]

FriendFeed as Group RSS Reader [All Things M]

Image via CrunchBase One of the things I love about FriendFeed is it’s versatility.

How Do You Prioritize Your Social Media?

What I do know: Facebook has been stealing FriendFeed features for the past year. Facebook will need better search. [...]

Who I Think Should Buy FriendFeed and Bit.ly

Image by Getty Images via Daylife If I were Acxiom I’d be going on a social media buying spree. Companies like Bit.ly or FriendFeed. Match what they know with real time behavior data. The great thing about URL shorteners like Bit.ly is they permeate the walled gardens like Facebook and the great thing about FriendFeed [...]
