Anyone try turntable.fm yet? You can chat and DJ for each other in a room. I’ve been on and it seems pretty interesting. I believe it’s still in beta right now and open only to those who have Facebook friends who are already on. So all my facebook friends can log on now. Let me know if you want to DJ for/share your music with me. :)
Ok, so maybe it’s not THAT new, but it’s new to me because I haven’t played with Flock since version 0.0001 beta. Apparently, I got Joey hooked on Digsby. Not sure why he likes it so much. Now I have another thing to introduce to him.
Joey, meet Flock: the social web browser.
Not sure why I decided to have another looksy, but I’m glad I did. Essentially, it’s a tricked out version of Firefox that gives you quick access to most of your social networks like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, webmail, Picasa, you name it, it’s there.
There’s an integrated RSS reader and blog publisher too (although I don’t like to use it because I can’t, or haven’t figured out how to, upload images onto my server with that tool).
Many of the Firefox extensions seem to work, which is the only reason why I’m willing to give it a test drive.
Is anyone else using it or giving it a go?
Boy was the spirit of the Olympics ever-present at the Torch run protests today! Everyone showed strong team participation and competitiveness. Check it:
Team Darfur (represented by the green balloons):
Team Vietnamese Fisherman:
Team Friendlies (yes, that’s what the Mascots are called):
Team Lion Dancing:
Team Fudan (represented by the blue flag-i have to give a shoutout to the university where I was last summer):
and my favorite, Team Athletes:
Where did all these people come from? How did they start “cheering” on their respective teams? Where were they before all this? Are they JUST starting to protest now? I felt a little left out, like I should have been holding a sign or something.
Here’s my chat with Melissa after we left:
Me: I just bought sek lau jup (guava juice from a store in chinatown)
Melissa: I just bought a mocha
Me: guess that means I’m pro-China and you’re pro-America.
Can I just be pro-people?
Now in public beta, Digsby offers IM, email updates, and social networking, all wrapped up in one. You can chat on AIM, MSN, Yahoo, and Google Talk with one buddy list. Too bad there’s no support for Skype just yet. Digsby will also alert you of new email, and events in Facebook and Twitter. Looks good to me so far! Anyone up for some twittering?
me: tell everyone i said hi, if they remember me
her: no problem. they remember you!!!
me: yay! i’m the chinese girl who can’t speak chinese
her: haha, no, you are the nicest girl who never sings
