Shawn, Thanks for the invitation to your network on LinkedIn! :) I have to explore this site in more detail in the near future. It much more than a site for your rÃ©sumÃ© and CV. How would you compare and contrast LinkedIn with other career and "business card" sites, e.g. Xing and Plaxo?"
I think that explosion of personal publishing and social media interaction and conversation is due to the simplicity of getting started to write your own electronic journal or log of your web activities. As a citizen journalist, you don't have to know how to code hyper text markup language in order get your word out. It much easier now to have your own printing press! The next phase is on its way with the very simple microblogging sites and platforms like Twitter, FriendFeed, Tumblr and Posterous."
MoxieWorks: I think your 4 point are really good, especially the first one, "Take good care of yourself." But I must say it is a danger to "feeling part of something larger than yourself." This notion could end your life in disaster and your life will burn out once for all... This is a philosophical point that I could explain in more detail later on. "
Shawn: Thanks for your input. I think I will start using Del.icio.us as my personal memory and bookmarking site. By the way: Why all the "dots" in the name?! ;) The registered the .US domain and separated Del and icio? ;) Mac: Thanks for spreading the good word on StumbleUpon! :)"
In Europe you could find plenty of different microblogging sites in different languages. Mainstream media has covered Twitter pretty much lately. Mac: I personally think that Twitter has to improve its search engine. I like the #hashtag, but in the latest version of Twitter, they have hidden the advanced search features in some strange way. I look forward to a piece on why you should be on FriendFeed. My wild guess is that it will start to become more popular now when Facebook has acquired the company."
