Twestival Local LA

September 10, 2009 by  
Filed under Geek Get-Togethers

What is Twestival?
A Twestival or Twitter-Festival is a global series of events organized by volunteers around the world under short timescales, which bring people offline for a great cause. Twestival is run 100% by volunteers and independently from any not-for-profit; although the organizing teams do work closely to outline an achievable and measurable fundraising target. Twestival also sets out to identify key skills of volunteers and match these with the needs of the cause; particularly communications strategy, tech integration and social media training. Twestival Local takes place in cities around the world during September 10-15, 2009.

Twestival LA
Last February, Twestival LA raised close to $20,000 for charity:water in just one night and two weeks of planning! It was a night of music, comedy, fun, and meeting new friends, while raising money to help bring clean water to those who need it.

gdgt Launched!

gdgt-logoThere’s one thing that you need to know about me if you don’t already — I LOVE GADGETS. I’m a total gadget geek and I’m sure a lot of you are as well. I had two friends call me “Mary Poppins” recently because I was pulling all sorts of random gadgets out of my purse. I’ll take it as a compliment since she’s quite a lovely lady. :)

So what can make me more happier than having a new shiny toy to play with? Joining a social network built around a community of shiny gadgets of course! I joined gdgt today and absolutely love the concept and community. The website is run by Ryan Block and Peter Rojas — two amazing gadget gurus, along with with the rest of the gdgt team!

So how does it work? My friend Veronica will tell you how!

New Facebook Design

New Facebook Design

Facebook changed their design again and I really like it. The main focal point is now the status update, which does remind me of Twitter. I believe this new change will help create more conversations though. Having the groups on the left is very nice. Now I can separate status updates by groups which is one thing that twitter is missing.

There’s a lot of data on the right side that it seems a bit cluttered. But it doesn’t bother me too much. I like to glance at it to see what’s new. I would prefer the “pokes” to be moved up though. They seem lost being so far at the bottom.

So I’ve played with Facebook user profiles, events, and groups. But I haven’t played with the Facebook pages option yet. So I decided to create a Fan page to test it out. It’s close to a user profile except it’s missing a lot of options like adding other apps/boxes. I can’t seem to find the “add a link” option anymore either. I do like the
Discussions option! It’s a great place if you want to ask me tech questions and such. And this social network seems to be more manageable than a Ning website. So if you’d like to interact with me, please add me here on facebook. Thanks!

Flickr’s New Layout

I logged into Flickr and saw that they’ve been working on a new layout. I activated it and I do love it. It looks like they moved the photos to the left, but also added an option to show/hide that group of photos. I like how the change is subtle.. doesn’t require learning a new interface. ;)

Thanks to Chris Pirillo, I’m totally addicted to Geeks! It’s a Ning social network just for, who else, but geeks! There are just so many interesting people on the site. Love it!

I really love the “Groups” section. You can search for various groups and find people with the same interests! I started a group for my favorite webisode called The Guild! If you enjoy the show, be sure to join my group!

My other favorite groups are Geek Girls, GeekBrief.tv Fanclub, and a few more. Come to the dark side and find out. ;)

Facebook Improvements

Filed under Social Networking

I really like Facebook’s new Hint popups. They’re the little yellow boxes all around the web interface. I know a lot of my friends had trouble getting use to the Facebook layout, so I hope these help!


And I do love how the Applications Menu moved down to the lower left. Reminds me of Windows, and apps are much easier to get to. You can rearrange them by clicking on the icons and drag-and-drop, just like the Windows Toolbar!

How to share anything on the web from Dan Hsiao on Vimeo.

I just learned how to embed photos on your FriendFeed posts! The more I learn about FriendFeed, the more I’m addicted to it. :)

Step 1: Login and set up the bookmarklet. (There are different instructions for different browsers.)

Step 2: When you are on a webpage you like to share, click on the bookmarklet. As you are adding a comment, you can hover over images on your webpage to include it on your post. You can include up to 3 images.

Linking on Plurk

June 23, 2008 by  
Filed under Tips and Tutorials

A lot of people have asked me how to link text on Plurk.  It’s kind of hard to show you how to on Plurk itself, so I thought writing a post about it would be more helpful. ;)

In the above image, you can see that all you have to do is type your link first, and then put the words you want it to link to in parentheses.

I found this out by accident while typing something.. and have been using this trick ever since.  Now you can too. ;)  Enjoy your Plurk Tip of the day!

I’m currently learning about Google Friend Connect. It looks like an amazing way of adding social networking to any website with little effort.

Watch Scobleizer’s video from Google Campfire One.

I love how you can log into AOL, Yahoo, Google, etc. to connect to the websites. No need to create another login!

The website is going to live tonight, but invite only. If or when I get an invite, I’ll write more about it. ;)
