Web Office not getting any traction?

A recent U.S. survey reveals that Web 2.0 Office Productivity suites are not getting any much attention from users. The lack of awareness is a little surprising considering that all the web office wars have been going around between Microsoft and Google.

FeedBurner bug caused by My Yahoo!

Several weeks ago, several blogs got a huge bump in their FeedBurner subscription numbers. One of them is PTB, which almost doubled its RSS numbers overnight. I initially thought this was a correction of previous other bugs by FB. Turns out this is another one, and it has been uncorrected for weeks.

Homeward Bound…

In a short while, we’ll be leaving for the Frankfurt airport. That’ll be another 24 hours of travel ’til I get back to Manila. Will take another 48 hours to rest and recuperate. I’ve already signed up as moderator for next year’s seminar again. Might also go to Argentina (and Brazil!). Ah, I miss home.

Update: Plane delayed. Missed connecting flight by 10 minutes. Begged. Nope. Door’s closed. One passenger drunk. Door’s opened. Two policemen in. Drunk man out. Yuga in. Saved by the booze!

Samsung SGH F-500: The DivX Phone

I’ve always wondered why most mobile phones use their own video format (3gp) when there are so many other existing ones like Quicktime, MPEG, etc. It would have been easier to view from from your PC to your phone but I guess all those DRM and licensing is getting in the way. Then, there’s the Samsung Ultra Phone.

Blogger or WordPress.com?

Was having time debate with several of the participants here in my workshop on which blogging platform has better usability and functionality. Of course, I was pushing for WordPress.com because of two things — scale and upgradability. However, others are saying Blogger is better. I haven’t used Blogger in like 4 years now and yes I know that it has improved since then. What do you think?

What attracts you: the Blog or the Blogger?

There’s this one observation that when a blog/blogger becomes famous, they usually grow thin on content. Gone are the quality posts and coasting becomes a daily blogging habit. Still, they continue to be famous and admired.

Now broadcasting on Twitter

TwitterOk, I said before that I don’t see myself being on Twitter. Just so many scary stories about it. Nevertheless, my seminar on new media and Web 2.0 has actually forced me to sign-up for one. So, yeah, I’m on Twitter.

What’s so funny is that when I signed a few days ago, I forgot about it and never told anyone. Today, I found people were already following me. How d’ya know that? If you want to add me or follow me, my username is easy to figure out.
