How Random Babbling Becomes Corporate Policy

Internet Social

I've made a few changes to my Internet presence. Obviously, I'm still keeping my LiveJournal up, and it will be my primary presence. I'm ditching twitter, except as a reblogging system. It's been so unreliable lately that it's not worth anything to me. Posts will still end up there, because I have my replacement reblogging to Twitter.

So I've moved over to This site is sweet. It's the same basic idea as Twitter- a 140 character microblog. But, unlike Twitter's walled garden, is entirely open. Open source, open platform. You can run the software ( on any server you like- and still share data with any server. That means you can setup your own, but still exchange noticies with me over on the main server. It also uses OpenID- that means your LiveJournal account is able to access that site without creating a new account.

Not as open, but also cool: FriendFeed. FriendFeed takes all the various sites you use and aggregates them into one place. Everything of interest that I post online will drop to FriendFeed eventually, which means that's your one-stop-shop for all things Remy, for all those that are interested in such things. It tracks comments, and so is kinda the ultimate solution to replacing LiveJournal with whatever. I know people were interested in that, so it's good to know that it's available.
