Zune ad on Technorati can’t be accessed using Firefox?

October 22, 2006

Interesting. The Zune MP3 player is being advertised on Technoratii. I decided to head over to the site but Firefox couldn’t take me there. There are many rules for web 2.0 (just web in general actually): Seemless, Easy, Always Works.


Posting a photo just got easier!

August 10, 2006

The image “https://i1.wp.com/www.discoverituk.plus.com/isleofskye/images/birds/harris_hawk6_lg.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.And the experimenting continues!
This photo of a hawk was posted using an Image Toolbar extension for Firefox. Instead of saving photos to my local hard drive, I can use this option to simply copy photos from other sites and move them to my blog.

This makes it simpler in that my local HD doesn’t get cluttered with images and it minimizes steps/clicks. It’s all about simplicity and ease of use. WordPress allows for you to move the image anywhere in the post. In this case I’ve put this picture of a hawk on the right hand side.

I then sized the image within WordPress’ post editor so that the image is proportionately displayed.

Second attempt to post using Performancing (keep your fingers crossed) and it worked. For those interested I’ll post how I did it later.

Participating in the discussion were Aaron Cohen (Bolt), Scott Milener and Steven Lurie (Browster), Keith Teare (edgeio), Steven Marder (Eurekster), Joe Kraus (JotSpot), Jeremy Verba (Piczo), Auren Hoffman (Rapleaf), Chris Alden (Rojo), Gautam Godhwani (Simply Hired), Jonathan Abrams (Socializr), David Sifry (Technorati), Matt Sanchez (Video Egg) and Michael Tanne (Wink).

Deep Dive Lab Experiment-update #1

Use Case #1 Post another Blogger’s post

An observation more then anything else. I tested using Performancing by reposting my post on viral marketing. Sandy commented on the quality of the “test drive” on the original post. I wonder whether my using Performancing alerted Sandy to my using her Flickr photo?

Deep Dive Lab Experiment

August 5, 2006

A Firefox extension called Performancing offers bloggers a publishing tool interface. This is my first deep dive lab experiment where I’ll become an expert at a specific web2.0 app or service. My philosophy is that a great tool is easy and valuable to use immediately. No manuals, no errors, intuitive and immediate impact and value.

Use Case #1 – Post another Blogger’s post

I have used Performancing to post a published blog entry. In this case it is my last post so you can do a direct comparison to a post done within my blog (wordpress) and then done with Performancing. See below.
