On Web

June 12, 2007

Things you should totally check out if you are one of those early adopter/web 2.0 folk;

First, not so much early adopter anymore, but nonetheless cool, is Jaiku. Jaiku, for all intents and purposes, is a feed aggregator that you control. Essentially, it takes your blog, your photostreams, your scrobbled music on last.fm, and anything else of significance to you that has a feed, and puts it all on once nice page. Also, they have some magical SEO going on there. Try searching anything with Jaiku in the name on Google, and it will result in Jaiku pages of folks.

Here is my Jaiku page

Secondly, there is Jott. This is really simple; you sign up, set up a few contacts, and then call a number on your phone and talk. You tell the system who to send the message to, and voila, the message is transcribed to them (either over email or Jott).

Once you have Jott down, check out Egorcast. This is a simple service designed to take your Jott messages and post them to Jaiku, Twitter, or WordPress blogs. I won’t lie, I am a bit skeptical about this. So far, it has not worked for me, and there isn’t really any documentation to it. It was mentioned in a few reputable podcasts, so I can hope that if my logins to my blogs are stolen, so are some celebrity podcasters, that way I don’t feel too sheepish.

i’ve been using this for a while now, and it was recently bought by CBS, and is by no means a young application, but Last.fm is really the way to go if you enjoy music and the entire open lifestyle that goes with web 2.0
