Why are all the URL icons wrong? I can understand the Drupal for Gmail but Facebook? MySpace? For once, Twitter is not the broken one.

One of these things does not belong.

Or maybe IE is broken. This didn’t start until Chrome came out….which I don’t have. Ah-ha! It’s a conspiracy to go to Chrome! ūüėČ Totally kidding, but it’s not a bad idea.

As I posted yesterday, del.icio.us is supposed to auto-post my new bookmarks every morning. Either I messed up with the URL-XML-PRC thing, or the problem documented in the forum is occuring. So today’s links were lovingly handtyped for your clicking pleasure. Maybe it will work tomorrow. And for your viewing pleasure (found on TechCrunch, links to article about Gmail outage):

I just discovered del.icio.us gives the option to post lastest bookmarks to your blog. I have now signed up and today it is supposed to post. We will see.

Meanwhile, I did bookmark an article entitled “Why Twitter hasn’t failed: The Power of Audience.”¬†The article is pretty interesting, especially since¬†I use Twitter myself and in light of the recent Bird Bans (see prev post here). Twitter is great (when it works) and can be useful–I just don’t see it as omnipotent. One day it will fail or fall by the wayside if major problems keep cutting into its use. I remember MySpace and Facebook, back in the 2004 days. Back then, it was the newest way to keep up with your friends; now, it’s almost a joke at times with the adverts, apps and¬†add-friends-frenzy. I still use both sites but my usage of both dropped when it became too problematic & annoying to sign in to the damn site.

Although, I’m still waiting for someone to come up with a FriendFeed type site that will also post replies to your social network sites. I know I’m not the only one–we’ve got the idea, we just need a developer and some money for a startup. Anyone want the job, let me know, I have some ideas.
