No problem at all. On the follow up thing, you would be absolutely amazed and how much stuff either gets caught by my spam filters or just forgotten on the first attempt.

I imagine the same thing happens to everyone.

That's true but Acrobat and Flash are almost necessary these days. People don't install them because they want to, they install them because they have to. It's almost like Microsoft Silverlight, it will have a hard time picking up steam because they have to prove there is real, practical value.

I think Kinset is pretty cool though, once you get it installed.

It will be under the umbrella of this new company. So IZEA will own PayPerPost as well as all the other companies that I mentioned.

Great software. Disqus is working really well. Bravo!

Indeed. SezWho provides a sort of universal commentator profile, not a new commenting system. My point in the debate is that SezWho takes up the same real estate as a system like Disqus. I don't believe they are cross compatible. Even if they were, I think it would be "messy".

Yea, it's pretty great. ha.

Translation software is great if you are only trying to get a very rough estimate of what is being said, but I don't think it makes a very good international relations tool. ha.

That's the second most important role of Web 2.0, to borrow indiscriminately for obscure cultural references in order to create catchy products names.

Yea it would great to have a collaborative translation service. You would need to find a ton of helpful multilinguals but if you could, it might save a lot these kinds of trouble.

There is the trick, isn't it? Features are great for keeping people interested in a product they already know how to use, but you can't get them there in the first place unless the biggest value is dead simple.

Re: Is Your Computer Secretly Connecting To The Net?

No problem at all, it really comes in handy if you find your web connection slowing down for reasons that you can't explain.

French doesn't translate very well using software. You might have been better off searching out some kindly French speakers on a Forum.

As to why it's showing up in diplomacy. That I can't help you with, I'm guessing they assumed that the tech was much more advanced than it is.

Re: Sploggers Steal Content, It’s What They Do

I think that's the problem with splogs. For people who understand what is going on it's business as usual, but for people like your Mom who have their hard work stolen and used for who knows what, it can be a little troubling. I think if you really need to keep your content under control, you might suggest that she disables her RSS feed. For a personal site it's not always necessary.

Rich I really respect what you guys are doing, and I would love to chat with you (over Gchat or email) if you have have the time at some point.

The most useful tool you could provide someone like me is a way to track all the splogs who have "borrowed" my content. More than the theft itself, I want a means of blacklisting them through Spam Karma and Akismet so that they can't steal my comment space with their fake trackbacks.

The likelihood of any of these sploggers actually holding themselves accountable is nil, but if you made it easy for publishers to report them to the major search engines that would be a boon to the cause.

Thanks for the comment!

:) I guess some Croatian is better than none, unless of course you're dealing with foreign ministers.

Great product overall Fernando, glad I had a chance to give it a look!

If you're going be sure to use Google Translate, Babel Fish might get you in trouble. ;)

It definitely is stealing. Hopefully folks like the guys at Attributor can help make it harder for sploggers to get away with it.

Re: The State Of The Web

Sun, 11 Nov 2007 03:25:02 -0000

I think I agree on some level with both of your points. Mobile tech, RF IDs and ubiquitous Wi-Fi are taking us on a crash course towards a world where we all have access to the net whenever we want it. More than that, we will all be able to interact with terrestrial objects through the web much more seamlessly than we can today.

Another big question is whether all this information and access to information will make our lives more complex or less, how well do you think we will adapt to the increased information load?

3D is an interesting technology -but- I don't think it is being done well at the moment. The only way that 3D can make waves is if worlds can be created that actually add utility.

For example,

How does one do web search in 3D that is as easy as something like Google?

How does one send email in 3D?

It almost seems like 3D worlds would best be used as proxies for social networks, with access to the "real" internet inside of it.

I am sure that was amusing. Ha.

Thanks Rich, I replied!

Good point Dan! I think that it's crucially important that people understand that this is a project completely separate from PPP.

Thanks Daniel! It looks like a really interesting product and a surprising new move from the IZEA team.
