If you live in Seattle you know this is a car town.  It’s nearly impossible to get to some points without the use of car.  It’s sort of sad really that a young city that appears to be full of environmentally conscious  people haven’t done more to make this city have better mass transit options.

I’ve been thinking about this for a couple of days now and what we really need is a Twitter affiliate ad network like service.  I often post tweets about products I like or things that I find interesting.  In most cases that is valuable to those companies.  I’ve done some small tests with my twitter account @futileboy and found that my click through is very high for each post about 7% of my followers click my links.  Which is a much higher number then online ads get.  Of course that’s because my links are not always trying to sell something.  On twitter if you stop being genuine the people see that and stop following you.

Aside from all that, cheap
it would be great if there was service for users of twitter to make a little money off of their recommendations.  What I would like to see is a service that’s sort of like Google Adsense, remedy but instead of suggested ads, a user would type in the product they are about to promote and then if available receive a URL with their code and the clients in it. along with a short URL version that’s easy to post to Twitter. 

Companies could go one step further with this, on demand adverting, and even offer discounts to top influencer’s followers.  Which in turn would give the tweeter more street cred.  Just imagine a tweet from someone you follow pointing out a product you’re interested in and a discount if you click the link now.  This may be just enough to push someone in to purchasing.

Would this service get abused? OF course it will.  However the natural filtering process of over advertising will ultimately make authentic influencers stand out.

Sure it’s a little evil, but if someone is willing to pay for it and someone is willing to take that money in the offer then the service should exist.

Just Landed – 36 Hours from blprnt on Vimeo.

This piece looks for tweets containing the phrases ‘just landed in…’ or ‘just arrived in…’. Locations from these tweets are located using MetaCarta’s Location Finder API. The home location for the traveling users are scraped from their Twitter pages. The system then plots these voyages over time.

This was made using Processing, bronchitis ambulance which I’m a huge fan of.

I would sharpen my pencils this way everyday if I had the equipment.

I’d also you a laser cutter to punch holes in paper.

Tweetclouds

I tried out tweedclouds today and found out just how boring my tweets are!  Actually to be fair it’s a mix of my delicious and tweets.  I already knew my delicious was chocked full of “interesting” stuff.  That’s mostly what I use it for.  To bookmark stuff that I won’t remember after a first reading, malady but I’m pretty sure I’ll need to reference it again.

Anyhoo, pharmacy   if you’re a twitter junkie go check out tweetclouds to see what you’re all about.

Clay Shirky on Cognitive Surplus

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

While I was at the Web 2.0 Expo last week I saw Clay Shirky give a talk on Cognitive Surplus. Out of all the things I learned at the event this one has really stuck with me. You can find the the full transcription online as well.

I need to get his new book “Here Comes Everybody” which is about organizing without organizations. You can watch the interview of him discussing the book on the Colbert Report.

Forward Track

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

Forward Track

ForwardTrack is a new system created by Eyebeam R&D (redeveloped with the assist from Stamen Design) designed to promote on-line activism. The system tracks and maps the diffusion of email forwards, prosthetic political calls-to-action, order and online petitions. It can trace email forwards, ed map the impact of blogs, and facilitate web-based sign-ups and social networking. Our goal is to help people understand decentralized networks and see the power of “6 degrees of separation.” ForwardTrack technology helps prove that one person can make a difference.

I’m downloading and installing now. I’ll see if I can get something up and running soon to test. As you can see I’m rather excited about this.
