delicious has been a royal pita lately. but I've been using it since 2004, I love the service and it seems the avos guys are trying, so I don't wanna ditch them prematurely. but they do need to provide a stable service within the next couple of weeks or i'm gone for good.

I srsly hate relative timestamps, especially on blogs. published about a year ago? wtf.
hmm, isn't this a problem of all technologies which use both a camera and an internet connection?

Sometimes evolution sucks.
Eric Schmidt mentioned yesterday at LeWeb that some sort of 'noise control' will be coming to Google+. Obviously they focus their attention to algorithmically tell us what's most interesting, but there also will be ways to explicitly do it yourself (don't quite believe it, but we'll see.)

just a test since my (buzz-) stream has been empty for the last couple of days.
watching the Google+ commercial during the Lions vs. Packers game I can't get rid of the feeling that Google isn't really aware of the fact that their real life metaphor isn't supported by the social design of G+ (Circles don't constitute reciprocal relationships, etc.)

bin mir nicht sicher ob zur nachahmung empfohlen (gscheiter wär ggf, das dortige im eigenen cms zu spiegeln, ohne die dynamik der kommentare zu verlieren oder so), aber zum überdenken.

funny to read this against Yegge's rant http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3101876 ("Google+ is a knee-jerk reaction, a study in short-term thinking, predicated on the incorrect notion that Facebook is successful because they built a great product. But that's not why they are successful. Facebook is successful because they built an entire constellation of products by allowing other people to do the work...")

I don't get Google. 'social' ist the probably the area which seriously could hurt them and which they shouldn't be streamling at all. Social Web Blog: A sunset for this blog, a sunrise for another
I hate to say it, but while I'm less than impressed with Google+ (even if I kinda like it) I'm really blown away by the up and coming Facebook (which is what Google+ could have been if Google had some social vision).
I think Google did a decent job with Google+ Search, but it's kinda weird/lame that you can't display search results (anti-)chronologically.
"Please upgrade your browser to use blabla. Thanks!" yeah, right.
kk 12 years ago: "The beauty of network logic is that the mechanics of this software does not rely on artificial intelligence, or AI. Rather the collaborative work is done by pooling the teaching that each person would do alone into one distributed base. It's an example of dumb power. Lots of people teaching a dumb program, but all connected together, producing useful intelligence. The strength of the network is built by the slim bits of information that each member is willing to share. Sometimes that's all it takes."
