shelfariShelfari has been one of my favorite websites in the past few months. I’m so thankful that my friend Mike invited me. It’s another book social network, but what makes this one different is the amazing user interface. I absolutely love seeing the book covers on an actual shelf. Adding books, reviews, and discussions are quite easy as well. Join the community so we can recommend books to each other. ;)

Here are some IT-related books that I read/want to read:

Shelfari: Book reviews on your book blog

I enjoy reading books with topics in sci-fi, fantasy, technology, social media, library 2.0, and scrapbooking. Come join me on Shelfari. I’m also on GoodReads and LibraryThing if you prefer those book social networks.

I’m loving the new Delicious website! Even the domain name is easier to spell. ;) I use to google my own site because I couldn’t figure out where all the periods went. haha But I’m very happy with this new website upgrade. It’s about time. There’s been other bookmarking websites, but this is the one I always come back to.

I only bookmark technology websites, so if you’re interested in that, be sure to add me to your network!

Thanks for the video link, Kevin!

Plurk

June 2, 2008 by  
Filed under Links and Resources

I signed up for a new website yesterday called Plurk. My first thought when I tried it out was this is posting 140 characters Twitter posts, on a Dipity Timeline, with responses like Pownce! It certainly does take a bit of getting use to, but highly fun! I recommend signing up and trying it. It might just be the next big thing in microblogging. ;)

I tend to post quirky and random stuff here because it’s fun. :) The only thing I don’t like about Plurk right now is the logo of the headless animal. But that image is talked about so much, that I’m starting to think they did the right thing!

Be sure to follow safe plurking habits! Don’t plurk to strangers! :) But looks like the only rule I followed was #10 — have fun!

Qik Questions

April 23, 2008 by  
Filed under Daily Ramblings

I’ve been very interested in video and real-time streaming media lately. And I forgot to mention that I asked Cali a few questions about Qik a while ago. She was so nice and responded so quickly.

I asked:

Is there any way to comment on the Qik website without having a camera/phone with Qik capabilities? I tried to sign up, but it wants to send the application to my phone. Also, how do Qik & Qik Devices work? Do you have to buy a data plan that’s separate from your iphone?

and this was her response.

Thanks Cali for clearing up my Qik questions for me!

Free Web version of Photoshop Launches

March 27, 2008 by  
Filed under Software and Web Apps, Tech News

Since Adobe Photoshop is somewhat complex to learn, I have been looking for a free image editor that our staff can use for basic image editing. I’ve tried installing Gimp, but the windows version crashes a few times. But great news, I can have the best of both worlds! ;)

The maker of the popular photo-editing software Photoshop on Thursday launched a basic version available for free online.

Photoshop Express will be completely Web-based so consumers can use it with any type of computer, operating system and browser. And, once they register, users can get to their accounts from different computers.
