Yahoo tests social network

September 18, 2007

Article about yahoo’s attempt to crack myspace and facebook’s domain; more at techcrunch. Also some brief discussion about whether this is the end of Yahoo 360. I wondered the same thing.

Of course, mash is invitation only and I didn’t receive an invitation (despite the fact that I really have been using yahoo’s services for EVER it feels like…)

I always wonder how they determine who gets invites….
Anyhow, if you have one, would you mind sharing? email me at georgiawebgurl@yahoo.com


del.icio.us testing new features

September 14, 2007

If you are a del.icio.us user, you may be interested in knowing that del.icio.us is testing some new features. If you didn’t receive an invite (I didn’t, which doesn’t mean much…) then you can request to be added to list.

I do hope that this will also mean more functionality in searching. For example in the Cataloging links page which is populated by del.icio.us links, it would be great if I could include a search box limited to user … Currently, searching by user is limited to being logged in.

a little news on freebase

September 3, 2007

While freebase.org is still developer only (are these related? a little hard to tell, but I think yes) freebase.com is now open, no invitation needed.

So, there. Go play in a new sandbox! ;-D
