What's going on in the Twitter world

TweetVolume is a frequency search engine of sorts, giving you feedback, by way of graphical representation, how many times your search term has shown up on Twitter.

Twitter is the serivce where you can talk with yourself. The words shown up on Twitter indicate some different and significative things. Let's do some tests using TweetVolume. And you can compare this with google search.

1. happy, sad, smile, cry, sleep

Most peoples are happy. So please join in twitter, you can meet happy people and that will make you happy too. Smile is equal to cry almostly. At last, sleep is the important thing.

2. Peace vs War

This is not a peace world. Never be. Oh my God!
3. Man, woman, people, dog, cat

I'm sad to say that the twitter world is out of balance on sex. And be happy that the cats are more popular than the dogs. I have three cats :_)


My web2.0 desktop

As one web2.0 geek, web2.0 icons use one half of desktop dock. Often, the number to click them is larger than others.

The larger version on the Flickr will, where appropriate, let you mouseover for the name and a link, but I’ll save you the trouble of a click by repeating the links below.

You can download the dock icons from my box.



Zoho Notebook

As written in ReadWriteWeb, "With Zoho Notebook, you can create many different types of content - such as text, image, audio, video, drawings, RSS feeds. It's also a content aggregator (including HTML content from web, Zoho Writer doc, Zoho Sheet spreadsheet etc) and has impressive collaboration features. While content aggregation and collaboration are almost mandatory these days in a Web Office product, it's the variety of content you can aggregate and collaborate over that is impressive in Zoho Notebook." Zoho Notebook is really one perfect online product. It's valuable to try out.

I made one "twitter page", and share it



Embed Flickr Slideshows

flickrSLiDR allows you to easily embed the classic flickr slideshows on your website or blog. All you need to do is enter the flickr URL address of the user, photo set or group you would like to embed along with some options. You'll receive the HTML embed code in return. More.

This is created with my flickr photos. It's cool!

Feedshake with lifehack

Web site FeedShake is a feed merging tool that lets you put several different RSS/Atom feeds together in one master feed. I have some rss subscription on lifehack. Today I merged them in feedshake with url:
But it doesn't work anyway. I don't know the reason.

Here is the rss list:

Say hello world to column "follow me"

Every day, I read many articles about lifehack and GTD via rss reader and blog. It isn't enough to read them. And it is unfair to say good or bad before not doing as them. So I decide to follow them to do. With time pass away, the benefit and fault will appear. I will write some articles to log them and named them "follow me" by tag.

Is it one good idear? Please discuss with me about it.
