How To Combine Your Own Efforts

I came across the invite-only beta for Onaswarm.com and I've had some good conversations since having my invite request responded by one of the developers. The upcoming plans are looking really interesting, and I like being able to combine my feeds. I'm still wanting some aggregation for things like bookmark feeds, and it would be nice if trivials like Twitter or Jaiku didn't put full posts into my final feed, but annotated the existing posts with my status. There are a lot of ways this could all go and I'm really interested in this.

You can view my Onaswarm feed. I'm going to continue keeping an ear on things over there and try to get in on this band wagon. This is more my kind of social network, because it deals with the things I already care about. What am I talk about, where have I surfed, and what am I talking about? It lets me pull all this from what I am already doing. I think this can turn out very well.

I have a related surprise to announce here, probably after the holidays. This is a developing side project of mine, which goes in line with things like this and is also quite a different beast. I'm really excited.

No comments:

I write here about programming, how to program better, things I think are neat and are related to programming. I might write other things at my personal website.

I am happily employed by the excellent Caktus Group, located in beautiful and friendly Carrboro, NC, where I work with Python, Django, and Javascript.
