My love-hate relationship with Connect2Edmonton: Twitter & FriendFeed to the rescue?

Connect2Edmonton (C2E for short) is a community website serving Edmontonians that launched on March 30th, 2006. On March 4th of this year it surpassed 3000 registrations, and announced that it receives 45,000 unique visitors per month. Those are pretty good numbers for a website all about Alberta’s capital city! You can find all sorts of… Reads more »

NewsGator Goes Free

NewsGator announced today that effective immediately, all of its consumer software and services are completely free! That includes NewsGator Online, FeedDemon, Inbox, NetNewsWire, and a bunch of other applications. From Greg Reinacker’s post: But I can hear you asking already…"why, Greg, why would you do such a thing?" What we’re working to do is to… Reads more »

Google Acquires FeedBurner

Lots of talk today about Google’s $100 million acquisition of RSS management company FeedBurner. Congrats to the FeedBurner guys! I do have to admit though that I am bit sad that FeedBurner is now a Google property. I guess they were too valuable to remain independent forever though. From TechCrunch: Feedburner is in the closing… Reads more »

Yahoo! Pipes

I decided I would take one last look at Techmeme before heading off to bed, and as a result I just found out about a new product from Yahoo! called Pipes. It’s definitely not for everyone, but my inner geek is jumping for joy – Pipes is very, very cool: Pipes is a hosted service… Reads more »

Podcasting Growth by Subscribers

Blogging is a pretty open, flexible medium and each blog varies greatly from the next, but if there’s one thing that holds true (usually) it’s that some of the best insights are found in the comments. I was reminded of this today when reading Frank Barnako’s post about the latest podcasting stats from FeedBurner: Rick… Reads more »

NewsGator Inbox and other news

My aggregator of choice has a new name! NewsGator Outlook Edition is now known as NewsGator Inbox, and the first release candidate is now available (and stay tuned to the blog for future updates). I’ve been playing with it for a while, and it’s very solid. I for one really like the name change –… Reads more »

New Feed Icon

You might have read lately that Microsoft and Mozilla have decided to standardize their icons for feeds on the one used in Firefox. The Microsoft RSS Team reported they would adopt the Firefox icon a couple weeks ago: We’ll be using the icon in the IE7 command bar whenever a page has a feed associated… Reads more »

Squidoo

I first learned of Seth Godin’s project called Squidoo a couple months ago, but the service was only in private testing. Now Squidoo has entered public beta so it’s ready for you to kick the tires. A lens is what Squidoo is all about – lensmasters create a lens on a topic they know a… Reads more »

Google Reader

Google has released another long awaited and much talked about product into beta – Google Reader. I am not a big fan of online news readers, mostly because I like to be able to take posts offline to read in class, or other places that I don’t have Internet access. That being said, Google Reader… Reads more »

Where is Christina?!

I took a couple of hours to just plant myself in front of the TV tonight, and I happened to catch VH1′s Greatest TV Moments for Christina Aguilera. I have always liked Xtina, ever since the first time I saw “Genie in a Bottle.” I vaguely remember running to get my Mom to come watch… Reads more »
