"Twitter is a great resource for information, useful links, breaking news and status messages from your friends or companies you're interested in. But ..." I'm such a fan of the PostRank filtering in Google Reader, I think I'm bound to like this... it filters the tweets of your followers, so (ideally) you are reading only the good stuff.

I found this link from the Seventh Generation newsletter... and what a fantastic site! I plan to dig around for communities I can get involved in myself (it'll be progress on a New Year's resolution), and I wonder how many of these networks students might be able to join as well.

I'm very excited about this. Gmail will now use Google Gears to provide you local offline access to your mail... great for airplanes and other places you might want to work offline.

An in-depth post frrom Steve Hargadon, and as the creator of Classroom 2.0, SupportBlogging.com, and other communities, he's in a good position to speak from experience. :)

I'm a big fan of PostRank's Firefox extension for Google Reader, so I was excited to see this Top Posts Widget on Steve Hargadon's blog. It automatically pulls out the posts on your blog that have got the most attention across many different social media: comments, trackbacks, social bookmarking, etc. I tried it on edtechlife.com, but it didn't really fit the look of the sidebar. It might be back though. Very cool to just plug in your URL and see the results in any case.

"Never read a twiller? Having twissues with your twerminology? Welcome, then, to the unforgivable abuse of the English language that some call Twitterspeak." Some of these are meaningful. Some are humorous. But if you spend any time on twitter, you'll likely enjoy skimming this list.

An absolutely amazing high definition panoramic image of the inauguration. Try zooming in. Wow.

"Each edition of the Horizon Report introduces six emerging technologies or practices that are likely to enter mainstream use in learning-focused organizations within three adoption horizons over the next one to five years." This particular edition seems especially relevant to what's happening with online social media in education (including the edublogosphere and edutwitterverse for instance).

"Google announced it will stop supporting several Web-based services, including Google Video, Google Notebook and Dodgeball.com" I suppose SearchWiki replaces notebook (to some degree), but the loss of notebook really threw Ken Shelton for a loop before his Google presentation at CLHS today.

I plan on trying this with my little used Tablet PC - and perhaps my Macbook: "Be one of the first to download the Windows 7 Beta. This pre-release version of Windows 7 is available to the first 2.5 million people who download."

Burt Lo tipped me off to this. It takes a bit of a work around, but you can record a message with your phone and then download the mp3 later using Utterli (formerly Utterz).

The poorly named "SearchWiki" feature from Google is "a way for you to customize search by re-ranking, deleting, adding, and commenting on search results." Changes appear whenever you're logged into Google... and others can see the public comments that you leave.

This appeared on the Google Docs blog back on Dec 22. I'm sharing it here for the future.

A fantastically cool list of twitter accounts used by US Government officials.
