Your Twitter Karma

Your Twitter Karma

“Basically, it’s a Flash application that fetches your friends and followers from Twitter when you click the “Whack!” button, then displays them for you, letting you quickly paginate through them. By default, the list contains all your friends and followers and is sorted by last update, showing those who most recently updated first. You can sort the list alphabetically either ascending or descending by Twitter ID. You can filter the list in several ways: only friends or only followers, all friends or all followers, and mutual friends.”

Calgoo

Calgoo

“Many calendar platforms offer sharing within their platform – Google, Yahoo, 30boxes, Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, to name a few. However, to share calendars all users need to use the same calendar program.

Calgoo Hub takes advantage of our Calgoo calendar synchronization technology and allows you to easily share public and private calendars with people using different calendar programs.

With Calgoo Hub, a wife using Outlook can share with her husband using Apple iCal. Co-workers using Google Calendar can share with each other within the same company or with colleagues using other calendars at other companies. If you’re at work you can view a friend’s calendar to set up a meeting or view your home calendar to see family commitments.”

Mediatyping

“Just prior to jetting off to Austin last week, I started playing around with a mobile version of this site. While a personal blog is hardly a site that really needs one (unlike, say, an app with a proven mobile user-base like Twitter), I wanted to see what would be involved in re-factoring this design into something more fitting for a mobile environment.”
