Tweetup Goodness – 5/27/2008

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Tweetup at d.b.a. last night in the East Village. The weather was tentative, but more than 20 people showed.

Tweetup Success

Last night was the second NYC Tweetup that I helped to organize. The first was a couple weeks ago at the 79th Street Boat Basin.

According to Facebook, “we’re rolling this out slowly.” Not entirely surprising given the backlash that has previously occurred when FB releases new stuff without any warning or feedback and then [Keep Reading…]

How Bebo Ruined My Life

My story, sad but true. While doing research for the blog post I wrote on Sunday comparing the “People you may know” feature of various social networking sites, I made the soon-to-be regrettable decision to add friends to my Bebo account. Like many services of their kind, they allow you to import your address book [Keep Reading…]
