You're probably wondering, "If this is netsperience 2.x, what happened to netsperience 1.0?" It was at GeoCities Free Hosting for over ten years, but now it's gone along with the rest of GeoCities - you can still view much of the old GeoCities site where I experimented with JavaScript and DHTML at ReoCities

What is "Riffing" on socl?

socl logoI have been following the troubled launch of Microsoft's new social search community socl - which seems to have stabilized after some shaky hours today.

So, what is riffing?

Like Google Plus and Facebook, you can comment on a socl post - and you can reshare it - but riffing is like collaboratively sharing it - and the original post is attached with its comments - and there is a link to view all riffs as a category

riffing on socl

well, Microsoft had to do something different, didn't they?

Empire Avenue: a social game, a community and ?

I joined Empire Avenue yesterday because Chris Pirillo (e)Pirillo recommended it on Google+ for people who already use social networks to promote themselves and their businesses.

It's kind of fun, investing virtual scrip (eaves) in other people and getting invested in and meeting new people. It could easily become an obsession, there the obsessed are stars, not trolls.

It connects with your activity and network on Twitter, Facebook, foursquare, LinkedIn, Instagram, Flickr, G+ etc.

I also added this blog there, so here's the code to promote my RSS feed to an offical Blog on Empire Avenue: {EAV:7b7cbef88863e3fa}

How cool is Gist? Like TweetDeck, but different...

Know More About Who You Know ™

I'm not a "joiner" - I was dragged into Facebook (ho-hum) and Twitter (wowza!) because I needed accounts for API testing...

So I joined Gist on a whim, and right away (a while back) a post aggregated on my Gist dashboard told me that that TweetDeck had a new release with LinkedIn integration.  - w00t!

Gist sends a discreet email every few days,  and when I log in I always see something interesting. It is a contact aggregator, sort of like TweetDeck but different. If you're like me and have some issues updating Adobe AIR apps like TweetDeck, Gist is a web based app. I do not think I have explored all its possibilities of sorting updates by tags, relevance etc. But I think Gist is cool.
