I checked out Google LatitudeÂ yesterday, pretty cool, kinda a mobile extension of google maps that allows you to see where your friends are and interact with them. When I logged in i already had a request from my friendÂ David Petherick, in the UK, he is contributing editor to the Next Web Blog. I was able to see him take a stroll thru his town today, and had I been in his ‘hood we could of met up for coffee or something.
One interesting item I noticed was that Google also has a status update field, hmmm wonder where they are going with that 🙂
- 1. Itâ€™s Google.
- 2. Itâ€™s Viral.
- 3. Everything is local.
- 4. Itâ€™s Desktop and Mobile.
- 5: I am the most important person in the world. You come second.
- 6. Everyone understands Maps.
- 7. Uncomplicated sharing.
- 8. Thatâ€™s not Latitude. Thatâ€™s just an upgradeâ€¦
- 9. They still donâ€™t get it. But they will.
- 10. And Whatâ€™s next?
My Friend @alexknowshtml aka Alex Hillman has taken on an awesome ambitiousÂ project on his blogÂ dangerouslyawesomeÂ ofÂ summarizingÂ each of the 95Â theses of The Cluetrain Manifesto. This is both in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Cluetrain and to incite people into discussion. Wow, so far it has been great, I’m spreading the word onÂ makingÂ this a daily stop on the internetz for all.
I figure the first 3 months of the year is a pretty solid commitment to anything. Lucky for me, Iâ€™m not committing to the gym, or to eat better (though I hope to do that anyway). Iâ€™m committing to working my way through theÂ 95 theses of The Cluetrain ManifestoÂ to riff, expound, and hopefully ask new questions about what they meanÂ today.
This is a must read if you are concerned with your future and your own success

What do you think?
Last night I finally got to following peeps that have been gracious enough to follow me over the last few weeks. I’ve considered using a bot to auto-follow new followers, but I do have 2 criteria for following and I don’t know of a bot that you can assign these types of constraints to.
- No avatar=no follow, yes I’ve broken this rule in the past, hence why a bot can’t decide to follow someone just because the are a nooby
- does it look, smell, taste, like a spam bot=no follow, and yes I have broken this one as well. Twitter has enough flow of conversations during the day to make anyone’s head spin, and if you are working, it’s really hard. Spammers=block after one or two confirmed spams
That’s about it for my follow strategy, now for my current following strategy!
I just went thru all the peeps that I follow, but haven’t returned the favor, they were pinged with a new follow request. I’ll wait a few weeks and then remove them from my following list. of course like above there are exceptions, there are a few people that I enjoy reading their tweets and most likely, I will not move them to the deadbeat status.
