I will highlight the Saresehan event, as it was a success in terms of the Live Blogging introduction to the local music community. Knowing that less Indonesian music community was accustomed with this sort of online live event coverage (back then, people mostly responded like, live blogging? WTF? Is it like a LIVE chat? What’s the different between those two? etc etc).
If you ever search through WordPress’ Plugin Repository you’ll know the search suck. It’s easier to search from Google than from the Wp’s extend site.
There’s a chat in WP-Hackers mailing list and today i found out Joost De Valk has made a Google custom search for searching through the site which work a lot better. Of course… it’s a Google search.
This is funny.
Ever since i use my Gmail to remote my sending and receiving activities for many of my email accounts, i sometimes do lost some ‘real’ emails due to spam filter (which i don’t really understand how it really works, even official email from Google sometimes caught off and marked as spam).
Delicious new design looks awesome. They also delete the dots in their domain and moved to Delicious.com.
The old del.icio.us domain was my all time smart domaining favorite but last time i checked by typing manually i still lost to a similar (parked domain). So it might still confusing for people.
I’m running 2 MediaWiki sites and have been impressed with the results (read: collaborating idea).
Sometimes i feel it is too big for my niche’s wiki but why start small anyway… Main problem is, MediaWiki is by far is feel very much techie and non-techie niche will find it hard to master the software.
Guess i’m just excited but i installed a Firefox theme! Not sure whether this will stay long in my machine but right now i really like it. Now the world wide web looks black. Awesome!
As a Twitter evangelist (follow me here), i always need to find a way to let me friends know about the site. You know, so i can connect with them. But, everytime, well almost everytime i ask my friends whether they tweet, they’re like, twit what? Then mostly it ends like, i’m too busy for this.
At first, i was amazed how Firefox 3’s new ability to capture my browsing habit by suggesting past URL browsed. Until, most of outdated addons are starting to be updated to match the new version. Now my favorite browser is back to its habit, slow loaded. So today i decide to give it a tiny make up, just to make it comfortable to me, by weaken (not killing) the smart location bar.
I’ve been trying to understand what are these guys doing for several days until this one. The 4th episode, which is not too geeky. It’s understandably funny.
From Laughing Squid i understand that it’s actually a daily show program called Good Morning Internet which broadcast every morning for 15 episodes, which will run daily for three weeks. The series runs by Poypac, the Brooklyn based comedy group and broadcast on IFC.
I am struggling to customize Pligg templates because the theme structure is a bit more complicated. Unlike other CMS like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla or even MediaWiki, Pligg theme is not the easiest to customize. I run 2 Pligg powered sites, one of them started with a paid theme from the Pligg Pro Store. But even from the official support site, the template is ‘not that good’. I still need to put my hands, i mean put a lot of work, to the template before i feel it’s cool enough and looks different from other Pligg sites.
It’s Firefox Download Day.
When i check the download site, i saw the number of downloading is 6.069.208. That’s certainly a Guiness Book of Records because noone has ever done this before. However, Firefox has celebrating the day by allowing users to print their certificate of the record breaking attempt, even if it’s not approved yet by the Guinness Book of Records.
Steve Ballmer gets an egg treatment on his visit to a University in Hungary recently. It’s a privilage to throw eggs to probably the biggest tech company’s CEO, really. However, now anyone can have that exclusive rights and can throw more eggs than ever to the lovable Microsoft CEO.
