Tagmindr: Use to set web-page reminders

Posted in Ego, Geek, Infoglut, Ruby on Rails, Seattle on October 8th, 2007 by leodirac – 4 Comments

I spent Saturday hanging out with about a dozen hackers building Tagmindr: Remember the future. Here’s the site’s self-description: Put any bookmark in a time capsule and we’ll send it to your future self. Give us your username and we’ll feed you anything that you’ve tagged as: “tagmindr” and “remind:YYYY-MM-DD”. We’ll remind you via RSS, SMS, Email or IM, so long as it’s RSS. (SMS, Email and IM coming later.) The use case is that you find a page about a product or service that you’d like to look at sometime later so you tag it into thinking…

Can’t Gmail just POP my Inbox?

Posted in Google, Infoglut, User Experience on October 4th, 2007 by leodirac – Comments Off on Can’t Gmail just POP my Inbox?

I access my gmail accounts through POP3 from my phone. The problem with doing this is that all messages get exposed through POP, even the ones that are filtered out of the inbox. This means that my phone which has much lower HCI bandwidth gets cluttered with all this list-mail that is less useful to me. I’ve configured gmail to filter this stuff out to be lower priority I’m using the web interfaces, but when I’m using a POP client, this filtering is lost. What I’d really like is the ability to configure the POP3 access with a checkbox saying…

FeedHub almost solves RSS Infoglut

A new feed digestion service FeedHub is attempting to solve RSS Infoglut. By RSS Infoglut, I mean not being able to keep up with the all the posts that show up in your feed reader. I recently posted a proposed solution to subscribing to more feeds than you can keep up with after rumors that Google might have hit on the same solution I had been thinking about building. FeedHub is promising in that it is explicitly trying to solve this exact problem that I’ve identified. Scoble refers to it as a Custom Techmeme. But I’m fairly sure FeedHub won’t…

Solving RSS Infoglut through Social Filtering

Posted in Analysis, Democratization of Information, Facebook, Google, Infoglut, Social Computing, User Experience on September 12th, 2007 by leodirac – Comments Off on Solving RSS Infoglut through Social Filtering

This morning Scoble linked to a leaked video out of google describing some new features to be added to Google Reader. I don’t like re-reporting other-people’s news here, but I can’t leave this one sit because it strikes so close to home for me. The ideas they describe sound exactly like what I’ve been thinking the world needs out of a feed reader — features to manage infoglut using the social network. What I’ve been thinking about building in my copious spare time is a web-based feed-reader that assumes you over-subscribe to feeds. That is, it expects you to “subscribe”…
