Group Photography: Tips and Beautiful Examples

Group Photography: Tips and Beautiful Examples

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); We come into this world, we grow, we make friends, we look for opportunities and ultimately, we have to part with our friends and family members. Each one of us has been through this or will cross this path in our life eventually. We wish to live those beautiful and unforgettable moments again by turning back time which is obviously still a fiction. This is why we rely on photographs. We are featuring group photographs today...

What to Expect From “Google Me”

What to Expect From “Google Me”

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); My greatest hope for the hotly-rumored, might-launch-any-day-now social networking app “Google Me” is that it will not merely clone Facebook in a weak attempt at parity, but that it will innovate and solve problems that plague existing social networks. Last month, a senior user experience researcher at Google, Paul Adams, gave a presentation entitled “The Real Life Social Network.” The 224 slides, embedded...

This Week in Google, Episode 51

Leo, Jeff and I jawed about the new Android App Inventor, Picnik in Picasa, mobile local search, my 23andme results, and iPhone 4 in this week’s episode.

Interact with Google Apps at the Command Line

Interact with Google Apps at the Command Line

Having a ball playing around with the just-released GoogleCL tool, which offers command line access to Google Calendar, contacts, Docs, Picasa, Blogger, and YouTube. With Python-based GoogleCL installed, you can do things such as list today’s events on your GCal right in the terminal, like so: $ google calendar today title Coffee with Michael and Samir Dozing off Lunch at Flingers Instant use case: Add echo "Next 24 hours:";google calendar today title to your ~/.bash_profile...

How to Set Up OpenID on Your Own Domain

How to Set Up OpenID on Your Own Domain

For some reason I was under the mistaken impression that setting up an OpenID on my own domain, ginatrapani.org, would be a big hassle: that I’d have to host my own OpenID server software and that it would take all sorts of installation and maintenance BS to do so. I feel strongly about owning my identity online, mapping it to my nameplate domain, and actively choosing an authorizing party instead of just accepting the sign-in service du jour like Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, or Google....

This Week in Google, Episode 47

This Week in Google, Episode 47

Great conversation today on TWiG with our guest Chris Messina, who dropped knowledge on the history and differences between OAuth and OpenID–which in an age of “Facebook wants to own all your sign-ons,” is an important discussion. My tip this week: to grab the Android Swype beta within the next couple of days while it’s still available, as previously-recommended ShapeWriter is no longer in the Market.

This Week in Google, Episode 46

This Week in Google, Episode 46

This week’s episode of TWiG featured Jeff Jarvis Skyping over 3G from a moving car on a NJ highway, Brad Stone from the NY Times who was a total trooper during our criticism of the Times’ takedown of the Pulse iPhone RSS reader, and Om Malik of Gigaom, a very smart teddy bear who I’d like to hug. My tip this week: the new Gmail Labs’ Maps Preview, which embeds a Google Map into any email that has a U.S. address in it. Continua a leggere – Original Link:...

Google Gives HTC EVO Phones to Google I/O Attendees

Google Gives HTC EVO Phones to Google I/O Attendees

Not only did Google pre-mail Droid handsets to I/O attendees, today they gave the Sprint HTC EVO 4G out to conference attendees at the Moscone Center, with a 2GB Micro SD card filled with music. Awhile back I tweeted that I wouldn’t accept “free” phones like these, since I cover Google on TWiG and at web sites and magazines where I occasionally freelance, and accepting a “gift” from a company I talk and write about so much seemed like a bad idea. But, I’m...

Live from Google I/O: Waving Thursday’s Keynote

Live from Google I/O: Waving Thursday’s Keynote

Yesterday’s live wave coverage of the Google I/O keynote was so much fun we’re doing it again today. The Day 2 keynote starts at 8:30am (in less than 20 minutes), and Adam Pash, Kevin Marks and I will be live-waving it. Watch the live video stream on YouTube and follow along in the live wave embedded below.

Introducing Todo.txt Touch: An Experimental Android App

Introducing Todo.txt Touch: An Experimental Android App

Yesterday’s post generated some interest in an Android application that manages a todo.txt file, and I’ve got an itch to try my hand at a mobile app. So, I’ve just created a skeleton Java-based Android app called Todo.txt Touch. The source code is located on GitHub, and it literally does nothing right now, except list some faux tasks from an XML file. Goal is to get the app to read a todo.txt from Dropbox (and eventually, other configurable cloud sources), sort and...

Happy Birthday to the Shell Script That Runs My Life

Happy Birthday to the Shell Script That Runs My Life

On May 12, 2006, I hacked together my first bash script that was more than a dozen lines and published it on Lifehacker. todo.sh manipulated a todo.txt file at the command line using grep, tail, head, sort, and cat: all the shell-based text tools that I knew and loved. Back then, in Lifehacker’s heyday, I was obsessed with the simplicity and portability of text files, mostly because Danny O’Brien featured them front and center in his original life hacks talk. Since then, Todo.txt...

Spokeo is the New Creepy People Search Engine

Spokeo is the New Creepy People Search Engine

Spokeo is the new people search engine that’s freaking users out, because when you “spokeo” yourself there’s a good chance you’ll find your home address, phone number, interests, gender, occupation, wealth level, marital status, photos, and more. The search engine compiles information from public records and public social media network pages to put together a pretty complete profile of individuals. My local news station ran a piece on Spokeo and profiled...

How Networks Transform Culture

How Networks Transform Culture

In the past three months Anil and I have been to events in six different cities talking about Expert Labs and how the White House used ThinkTank to compile feedback on the Grand Challenges initiative. At Fast Company’s Innovation Uncensored event in New York City last month, Anil absolutely killed it in a 12 minute presentation that hits the nail right on the head. Press play to check it out.

Embed Waves on Your Web Site That Anyone Can See

Embed Waves on Your Web Site That Anyone Can See

Google just released an easy way to embed waves on your web site. The Google Wave web element puts a wave on any web page–with anonymous access. That means even people not signed into Wave can read and watch waves that you’ve made public and embedded. (Wavers, here’s how to make a wave public.) Anonymous users can watch a wave change over time on your site, but they won’t be able to edit it. Let’s give it a try. After the jump, check out my first embedded...

Steve Jobs on Flash

Steve Jobs on Flash

Steve Jobs’ open letter “Thoughts on Flash” is a win for the open web, and a logical and well-articulated discussion of why Apple won’t allow Flash on the iPhone and iPad. Hooray. But. While Jobs says he refuses to put his products “at the mercy” of a third party, that’s exactly what Apple asks of all its iPhone app developers, to take the chance that Apple won’t distribute their work for arbitrary reasons (they might “confuse”...

On Tweets in the Library of Congress

On Tweets in the Library of Congress

Published my first opinion piece on CNN.com today, in which I argue it’s a great thing that the Library of Congress is archiving billions of public tweets. Despite some parentheses trouble and unclickable URLs in the story (I’ve alerted my editor), I’m proud of how the piece came out, even though CNN.com commenters seem to think tweets are a waste of storage space. Thanks to @matty_g, @Jason_Pollock, @Swiftsfan, and @itwalkabout for the example tweets in the story. Who...

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

New and aspiring Android users often ask me what apps I have installed on my Nexus One. The list changes pretty often–especially when Leo and Jeff recommend something good on TWiG–but for the most part I keep my Applications menu pared down to just the stuff I actually use. Thanks to AppBrain, I’m now syncing my list of installed apps to the web for easy sharing and updating. Here’s the complete list of what apps are installed on my phone right now. To the left...

Tell the White House What Our Next Tech Challenge Should Be

Tell the White House What Our Next Tech Challenge Should Be

This week the White House will put out a call to techies and scientists across the internet, asking a simple question: What should the United States’ next greatest technological and scientific achievement be? Get your answers ready, geeks. When you reply to the White House’s prompt–on Twitter, Facebook, or via email–your voice will be heard and your ideas will be counted. I know, because I helped build the software that will capture your responses and deliver them...

TWiG: The iPad Episode

TWiG: The iPad Episode

This week’s episode of This Week in Google included my friend Matt Haughey. Because we recorded on iPad launch day, the conversation inevitably centered around the new device, which I didn’t buy. A live viewer told me I looked a little bored at times–and I’ll admit, since I didn’t have one of the toys to play with myself, I kind of was. Still, it was a fun discussion full of iPad love, even though Jeff Jarvis had a little morning-after regret. Continua a...

Correcting Kindle E-Books on the Fly

Correcting Kindle E-Books on the Fly

A few months back I bought Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog–a great book about beating procrastination that I cited in a recent Fast Company video–on my Kindle. Today I got an interesting email from Amazon. To quote: We’re writing about your recent Kindle purchase of Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time by Brian Tracy. The version you received contained some errors that have been corrected. An updated version of Eat That...
