reflections in the rain about a dream
If prehistoric hunters and gatherers had access to social networking sites, they would probably end up with networks that looked identical to modern ones, according to a study published on January 25th in Nature, which was based upon field work among a tribe of Tanzanian hunter-gatherers.

Just like most people, you’ve probably got a few old routers lying around. It’s true that unlike computers, phones, and tablets, routers are somewhat of a less obvious upgrade choice, but if you want to improve the reception of your home network, it’s best to have a good one on hand.
This is kind of strange and I have trouble seeing why it would violate FB’s TOS, but hey, maybe it’s too much. You be the judge.
Edan goes in for a 3-month social networking detox. While I do check Twitter and my blog feeds, I no longer go on FB.
A lot of buzz is going around about Google Buzz. If there’s anything that ever threatened Twitter, it’s got to be Google Buzz, with it’s smooth integration into GReader and GMail. Sure, the interface isn’t perfect, but GMail’s interface also took some time to be polished. I’ve got Wave, but I’ve only logged in a few times. It’s not really that relevant to me. However, Google Buzz kind of bridges the gap. I can see how it would get really interesting to a lot of people.
For now, I’ll continue using Twitter, but Buzz is hard to dismiss when it beckons in my inbox. However, since I try to use a sort of Inbox Zero system, I rarely leave an email tab open for long periods of time. I do leave GReader and Twitter open a lot until I log off in the evenings, which begs the question, will I just keep GReader and Buzz, now that they are slowly merging?
I don’t know. I like keeping things separate. Google has a way of merging services that is somewhat annoying, especially for people working in technology. I don’t want to be reached all of the time, and having all of these ways of commenting and reading stuff is sometimes just time wasted.
I use GReader as a tool. Twitter is also fun, much more for personal stuff, than my blog posts and comments. I guess time will tell, but the general buzz is good for Buzz.
WiFi networks have become pretty standard nowadays and it’s quite common for people to try and steal or “borrow” your signal if you haven’t protected your home network with a password. That’s not all: you can easily pass on some messages to your more annoying neighbors anonymously.
