They recently had a Living Museum for the 60th Anniversary Commemorations of the end of the Second World War, in England, but, said that that would probably be the last since there were so few survivors. The The Last Days of WWII on the History Channel has been all about "60 years ago today." Which is kind of odd as that means that they can't play it again next year without editing.
I note that a G.I. Joe Navajo Code Talker was made some years ago.
"Next-generation infoware ... because both of them let you quit
Syndicated news (and blogs) succeed because they only trade in meta-data and thus are fully shareable; it matters not one iota to anyone if you read that BBC story off a weblog sidebar, inline on a portal page or on the actual BBC.
picking up my signal across a network of enthusiastic relays each aggregating, reformating and rebundling in their bid for your membership attention." - TeledyN
"But I'd love to see competition based on the value that's wrapped around the portable data we choose to mesh with infoware services, rather than on data lock-in." - Jon Udell: Next-generation infoware
The modules allow one to pull in rss feeds, so you could create a public
Digital Lifestyle Aggregator of sorts ... Livejournal posts of what they had for lunch seems to be popular. I have seen a few people put the rss output from a tribe into their public profile, mixing metaphors nicely. Ironically, tribe itself is not producing rss feeds for the in-profile blogs making the place smell of walled garden. In spite of former Tribe CEO Mark Pincus arguing for interoperability and open standards to allow users to interact with members of different networks without having to join those networks. Add the injury of no discussion post edits (every word is sacred) and no html markup we've got a near miss. Heck, even Friendster has Typepad blogs bolted on.
I've shifted most of my community reading to rss since discussion threads load like slow snot and now that people can put all sorts of interesting content on their profile page those often load even slower.
For some occasional under the hood data, check the Briatribe.
Humm, sort of a call to arms/request for widgets? More than a blog or del.icio.us pool, but, not quite the walled garden of a SN? We're already lousy with blogs, wikis, (anti-)social networks, source control repositories, search engines, and clipping and tagging services. No need to build a place for the widgets, just center of linking, tagging, and annotation. Color me interested.
However, we do need a SN just for invites to betas of SNs ...
San Francisco Bay Guardian has full page whinge about it. (and this in a ish with the huge pull out Rasputin Manifesto section)
"'Under the terms of the deal, New Times will pay Clear Channel a sum in the high six figures for naming rights to the Warfield Theatre, which for the next three years will become the SF Weekly Warfield', BGP representatives said. In exchange, Clear Channel will spend so much money on advertising in the Weekly and Express that there will be little or no money left for competing print media." - San Francisco Bay Guardian News
Thankfully, Dog Bites throws the Guardian a bone.
The Onion weekly in SF has good event listings and a newsletter. Dunno why you can't get to any of it online .... A new occasional paper, The East Bay Daily News which doesn't seem to have any news in it.
Rojo has both shared and recomended links. But they're only good for other people using rojo. No rss feeds outbound that I've located.
People turned to the Londonist for news (which is more known for snark and event notices), so, they started to provide it.
One of my most treasured news sources remains Cagle.
Orkut is certainly the most anti-social of anti-social networks. Profiles are not visible without logging in, there are no rss feeds in or out, and they seldom even bother to post any news (much less server status reports).
Wow! Massively incoherent. Citizen Journalists everywhere weep. Honor Tags is an idea introduced by Grass Roots Media (Dan Gillmor, Michael Goff and Jay Campbell) to put some really ugly self-tags on things that should be obvious by reputation at best or used to fib at worse.
I'd have to go HonorTagUnTag "I hate your tags. I'd rather not say anything and my work doesn't fit your categories." on everything.
Technorati Tags: aggregator,
'But he is no friend of democracy. He's no friend of freedom. He is a person who is very much supportive of the current ayatollahs, who are telling the people of that country how to live their lives."
Oh no, in a civilized country the freedom fighters would never ally with the religious right and tell people how to live their lives. Throwing black kettles in glass houses after the horses have bolted, and all like that. Democracy good! (may not be valid in all countries).
There is a short stack of live reblogs to read from. Clippings.reblog says "I was using an RSS reader called NetNewsWire which has a weblog interface and allowed me to post items of interest directly to this site. However I have recently started using reBlog by eyebeam which provides a web interface for RSS aggregation filtering and publishing via moveabletype. Reblog is a more efficient method that allows for better attribution of sources."
