Links der Woche (weekly)

  • The app functioned beautifully, with the ability to stream clips, grab wallpapers for your device, read news, and browse the complete episode index. Also: choose character likenesses as „contact images“ for your iPhone — assign a face to the phone book entry of your choice. An incoming call from best friend displays Kyle or Cartman; your weed dealer medical marijuana dispensary is Towelie, and so on.

  • The internet does not just present a few glittery toys. It presents the circumstances to change our relationship with the public, to work collaboratively in networks, to find new efficiencies thanks to the link, to rethink how we cover and present news. No, the essence of the problem is that we thought the internet represented just a new gadget and not a fundamental change in society, the economy, and thus journalism.

  • From what I can tell it will:

    Use a FriendFeed.com user account as the backend to provide all the Lifestream data
    It will use Disqus to allow commenting of each stream item
    It will provide manual addition of stream items
    Each stream item will also provide several social bookmarking tools including Addthis.com
    Links to profile pages on social media sites are pulled from FriendFeed

  • Shortcuts for commonly performed functions are beautiful things and we just found a great Firefox extension that’s going to save us a lot of time. It’s called UrlbarExt and it puts six little gray icons on the right side of your address bar. What do those buttons do? They perform in one click some common functions that would otherwise take several keystrokes.

  • With the help of del.icio.us founder Joshua Schachter, we used a recommendation algorithm to score every blog on Memeorandum based on their linking activity in the last three months. Then I wrote a Greasemonkey script to pull that information out of Google Spreadsheets, and colorize Memeorandum on-the-fly. Left-leaning blogs are blue and right-leaning blogs are red, with darker colors representing strong biases.

  • It’s an understatement to say that Diigo has a lot of features.  In fact, it’s so feature-packed that it’s hard to summarize accurately. But, I think using an iceberg as an analogy is apt here: It all starts with bookmarking and annotation.  But what Diigo wraps around that core functionality is its true strength.
