Heard about lifestreaming?
Via the super savvy Chris Harvey over on the TALO list:
...blogging is not necessarily dying, but is becoming an inadequate paradigm to keep up with all the data that the average internet consumer now produces. Lifestreams are the way to keep up with it all.
Yongfook has his own open source solution ready to go. Called SweetCron, you really need to see it to understand how it all holds together. Thankfully, Chris has installed it on his site so others can check it out. Barbara Dieu has hers up and running as well. It seems that you need to have your own hosted site and a bit of web nous to make it all work which puts it out of reach of a cheapskate free ranger like me.
And ironically, doesn't this make me.edu.au a form of lifestreaming?
Wow Graham and Chris- this is really great stuff!
We’ve been talking about lifestreaming in education.au’s Strategic ICT Advisory service think tankettes and this software is must try.
I’m definitely going to load up the Sweetcron software on my server.
Does put me.edu.au in the advance guard a little doesn’t?
Mind you the technologies are moving forward pretty quickly
There seem to be a variety of solutions being created to deal with the information snow storm.
I’m not sure that what is happening on Chris’ page isn’t more for his own benefit than that of an audience. I presume it updates automatically if you hang around long enough.
I belong to a group at Friend Feed which is another interesting concept
Wow- sweetcron looks like a really valuable resource potentially. Thanks a lot.
