Geeky Stuff

How 2 point oh are you?

So. Very. Extremely. A bit too much actually. People are actually concerned about me. I know I probably shouldn’t join another social net, but I get caught up in the moment. It’s such a rush. The joining. The setting up. The customizing. The friending. The snooping around. I’ll admit it. I get Zissou *crazy eyes* every time i jack into a new net of uber nerds. FYI. Matrix references are so 1.0.


Some 2.0s i’m currently digging.

Lastfm

I was slow to jump on this bandwagon. But I joined today and I am totally loving it. It’s like Pandora (which is now unaccessible to people outside of the US) + a social net of music lovers. Sharing, listening and talking about music is one of my favourite things and getting introduced to new wikkid music is the best thing ever.

The lastfm OSX App is pretty sweet. I love reading the bios of my fav artists, looking at their album art, and getting cool music recommendations.

Pownce

Though i still have been utilizing Pownce to it’s full awesomeness. This theme has made me want to. Love this Theme.

pownce theme i love 482

Gleamd is all about sheading light on cool people. You can vote for people to make them uber cool or learn about new cool people that you might not have known about. It’s all kinda inspiring!

Twitter. Lovable Twitter.

twitter-screencap

I love twitter. Some people (ahem… Tom) don’t get twitter. But after joining over 10 different social nets, twitter remains the ultimate champion. I can’t get enough of the my Twitter iFriends’ updates. They are my personal digg guide to the uber cool on the www. Somehow, they always seem to get to the latest and greatest news before anyone else. they are pretty much online all day and night which makes me feel more “normal” and less c-c-crazy and ob.sess.d.

And now a special high five to my beloved Twitter iFriends!

Here are some of my all time favourite Tweets. (I keep them for sentimental reasons).

Dmitry — Paid $70 for a new card because bank said the old one had been compromised. Biz idea: a bank that “compromises” cards and asks for reissue.

Vladimir — taking a meal in Russian Ministry of Emergencies. Bean soup+plov+salade=49 rubles (~$1.9), how do you like it?:)

Nik Amazed at how much BS some people will talk on Twitter to seem “cool” to people they will never meet. It’s just pathetic.

Nathan — Is there a way to turn down the pitch on Amber MacArthur?

Merlin — They should make a Bluetooth earpiece that squirts cologne and yells at waitresses for you. I’d call it “Le Douchebagoirβ„’.”

oh Merlin! I am still laughing. There are so many more… but i’m totally dunzo. Dunzo. And I am shooting a campaign for Reflections eyewear. As the model. I know. A little role reversal never hurt anyone… or did it? Should be defo cool to work with uber photog Darryl Humphrey.

Later Peeps.

    I’m so 2-point-oh, i carry post its with me so ppl can leave comments on me on what they think about what I am wearing on that day. i have to carry the Akismet source code with me though to stop the spam, ive got it written down on a legal pad.

    To clear up the “muppet” issue. in the uk its a very minor insult, basically i put it there as a warning to behave to all those bad-ass commenters. whoops swearword. I am in now way discriminating against members of the muppet show. I love Kermit.

    Oh I love Lastfm!! I suffer too, from a severe social networks addiction.
    I used to spent all of my free time checking my profiles, see if there’s anything new.
    Now I use 8hands, the social aggregator.
    It notifies me whenever I get a msg or a comment on FB,Flickr and Twitter.
    Oh, and it has the coolest Twitter feature- you can update twitter by changing your tag line, straight from your desktop.
    I think this aggregator supports some other social networks, don’t remember really.
    Anyway. if you’re addicted as you sound, I highly recommend you’ll try it.

    @vzakharov — lastfm needs you! you can DO it!

    @ Nik — i’m so 2-point-oh i don’t need to leave my house anymore. why socialize with real ppl when you can ichat with your iFriends. it’s so much more convenient. and on the on-going Muppetness, I must say that Beaker is my fav. Meep. Meep.

    @lasty — i can’t stop scrobbling. serious addiction. checked out 8hands. looks uber l33t, except that there isn’t a MacOSX version yet, which can only mean one thing… you’re using a PC. i’m so sorry. my condolences.

    @Mark — High on the taste-o-meter! high five!

    Last.fm + iTunes rocks! By the way, there a lot of ways to sync iTunes with Last.fm (Menuet, iScrobbler, etc.) I’m also a very twitterrificated jejeje :D

    And talking about 2 pointing, I’m a member of many social networks. And I hate that, because it kills my job time :)
