Happy Birthday to the Shell Script That Runs My Life

Happy Birthday to the Shell Script That Runs My Life

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 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...

Spokeo is the New Creepy People Search Engine

Spokeo is the New Creepy People Search Engine

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 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....

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...
