The Journalist's Guide to Twitter

Journalists are using Twitter to engage with their audience, connect with sources and continue building their personal brands.

The 140-character format forces writers to focus their attention and get to the point quickly. But this isn't just sound-bite style reporting. I talked with some reporters about Twitter and how they use it.


100 Geeks You Should Be Following On Twitter | GeekDad |

Twitter has of late been inundated by, shall we say, "normals." What was once our little playground has become rather more populated. But that doesn't make it any less effective a tool for communication. It just means we have to stick together, and keep the geek community thriving.

To this end, GeekDad has assembled the following: a list of 100 awesomely geeky-geeks. These are great, creative gamers and chiptune artists, astronomers and LEGO builders. Of course such a list cannot dream of being exhaustive, and we hope you'll add your own suggestions in the comments.

ad broad blog - random thoughts on the industry

I started in the business in 1977, working for a guy who could have walked off the set of Mad Men. He had a glass eye to replace one he'd lost in the War (Korea) and because of this, I hated looking at him. Not because I was freaked by the fake eye, but because it looked real and I couldn't remember which eye was which and each time our eyes met I worried I was tracking the wrong one. Like most women in those days, I started out as a secretary. The halls of advertising were clogged with secretaries, everybody had one, even some secretaries. Eventually, I was promoted to copywriter at what was arguably the best shop on the planet. I pitied freelancers brought in to work on projects no one else wanted, people aged out of the business, who had missed landing a spot on the corporate food chain. Then, I got pregnant: a condition so unusual for creatives in that era, my boss reacted by granting six months paid leave. But the day before I was to go back to work, the sitter dropped my baby on her head. The kid was OK, but I was so shaken that I became an ad-agency migrant worker like the freelancers I'd pitied--who in roaring 80s were laughing all the way to pre-ATM lines at the bank.

How technology shapes the world


UALadyScam is a scam website. In this website I will show you what happened to me so that no one else will make the same mistake again. Because I am not a tech guy, I don't know how to do good web design. (I used Microsoft Webexpression templates to make this simple website.) But ALL the content in here is true! In total, I've spent more than $1,000 on this agency. 

At the time I am typing this article, I am at Kiev International Airport awaiting for my re-booked flight back to my home country. I paid extra penalty charges to re-book this flight because I need to get out of the city and go back to my home country as quickly as possible.

In this article, I will tell you about my entire UA Dream trip in a city called Chernigov, Ukraine. I will tell you about what happened, and what I thought about it back then and now.

But before I go to the main article, I think it's necessary to talk a little bit about myself so that people will know where I am coming from and whether my background & experiences apply to you. I am a Canadian citizen. I am 27 years old. Asian descent. I work at a bank in Toronto, Canada. I passed my CFA Level I exam and am currently preparing for my Level II exam. Last January, I gave up my 5-year relationship with my girlfriend who was living in another country because she was not willing to move to Canada and she found new love and was about to marry. I congratulated her because I know our relationship could not last any longer due to such long distance.

7 years ago (2002) I signed up on a website called Confidential Connections while I was browsing for dating websites. Since then I've been receiving emails from them. Most of the time I ignored those emails as they are just one of the many dating website emails and I already had a girlfriend two years after I signed up on their website (5 years ago). But I noticed that for a period of time, I did not receive any email from Confidential Connections. Instead, I started to receive email from UALadys, UADream, Arladys, Chiladys, etc.

On June 23rd of 2008 (that was 5 months after I gave up my relationship with my ex girlfriend),  I received one email from UAladys which stated it was translated for a lady in Ukraine. Her name is Anastasia R. (ID 5008) Her introduction letter went as follows ...

A World of Cables, Unknotted - The New York Times > Personal Tech > Slide Show

You can spend weeks researching which TV or Blu-ray player to buy, and then you would still have to deal with the conundrum of the cables. Other format wars get resolved fairly quickly and definitively (Blu-ray over HD-DVD, VHS over Beta), but cable formats last, it would seem, forever.

Add to that the urgent up-selling from certain big-box electronics retailers, and you would think the cables are the most critical component in your audio-visual setup.

Cables are important, but they should not be expensive. To help untangle some of the confusion, here is a simple, somewhat opinionated taxonomy of most of the cables that we deal with in our lives. It's completely up to date — until the tech industry adds another confusing format to the pile.

Chatterous - group chat using the web, IM, email or phone


Pocket Gadget » Turn your iPod Touch into an iPhone (almost)

The iPhone has taken America by storm since its much-vaunted release. The rest of the world is slowly working on giving a crap, but to the States the iPhone represents the current holy grail of mobile phones. New handsets with high expectations are relentlessly branded 'iPhone killers', though has any phone even come close to knocking the iPhone from its pedestal in the minds of its users? Not even close.

However, during these times of economic uncertainty, a little bit of fiddling you can give your iTouch essentially the same features as the iPhone. Sure, you won't have an inbuilt camera, but you can't send MMS messages or record video anyway, so what are you really missing out on? The kink in the plan here is that you need to be in range of a Wi-Fi hotspot to use your iTouch-Phone, but with the ever-increasing number of public hotspots, it's likely that if you live in an urban area you're probably not too far away from one most of the time. The only money you'll need to spend is on a microphone, since sadly the iPod Touch has no built-in mic.

The great news is that besides having to spend a bit of cash on your microphone solution, all the software used in this tutorial to give your snazzy iPod Touch the functionality of the iPhone is totally free. So what are you waiting for?

There's no need to jailbreak your iTouch or modify it in any way – all you need is an iPod Touch on 2.x.x firmware, a pair of headphones with a microphone, a WiFi network, and access to Apple's App Store so you can download and use Fring – a free app which supports several different chat protocols.
