…Socialthing! will manage your online life?


Socialthing! “is a digital life manager that puts what you do online into one place. See everything that’s going on with your friends in all the sites you use, post stuff to multiple places at once and more!”

Basically, it takes your online life and combines it into one easy to read, follow, and update page. Then, instead of checking each site individually to see new messages, updates, photos, etc., you can just check Socialthing! and see them all in one place. The goal is to make interacting across multiple sites as easy as interacting through just one.

Currently, Socialthing! supports del.icio.us, Digg, Facebook, Flickr, Last.fm, LiveJournal, Pownce, Twitter, Vimeo, and YouTube, with plans for more services as the company expands.

I’ve been beta testing the site for the past few days, and I think the service has some definite possibility. Unfortunately I ran into an issue with adding my Digg profile, but issues are to be expected with any beta release, and I’m sure they’ll have things running smoothly in no time. Everything else loaded without issue though, and I was impressed by the speed with which Socialthing! fetched my data.

Overall, I’d say it’s a useful tool that has the potential to become an indispensable one. Lifestreaming is quickly becoming more popular as everyone tries to manage their vast online world, and Socialthing! is one of the first sites out of the gate, which should give them a jump on adapting and changing to meet users needs with new features and functions.

They should be coming out of beta this weekend, so head on over and give it a try.


…Blog posts don’t follow a simple path?

Wired Blog Post Infographic

Ever wonder what happens to a blog post after “Publish” is clicked?

The post is crawled, indexed, mined, scraped, republished, and propagated throughout the Web, going from servers to spiders to suits – to you.

To help explain this process a bit better, Wired has created a fantastically simple infographic.

Where do you fit in?

…Art should be mailable?


MAiLmeART is a very interesting project from Darren Di Lieto, the founder and editor of LCSV4. To enter, artists submit “envelopes or packages that have been drawn on, painted, dipped in acid, covered in paper mache (anything you want really) but they must look amazing and they must have traveled through the post with the postman able to see the work”. After all of the artwork is received, an exhibition will be held in London, where everything will be shown and eventually sold, with each artists receiving 70% of the profits from the sale of his piece. So far, the entries are all very unique and very beautiful, so I’m interested to see what other creations are submitted. If only I fly my way to London.
