That's right. Livejournal has just added Tagging to their system.

I guess, in a way though, users were tagged with their interests before this change.

Nokia Launches Bluetooth-based Social Networking

Mobile Social Software (sometimes stupidly referred to as "MoSoSo") has caught my interest as of late. Basically, think of services like Friendster, Myspace, Tribe and Orkut but using cellphones and PDAs instead of having to sit down at a computer. Dodgeball is probably the most wellknown Mososo out there (which will notify the people on your friends list when your are nearby), but Nokia's recently released Sensor application for Bluetooth phones may soon become very popular.

The concept is very simple. Bluetooth technology basically acts like a radio transmitter that is always on. Most people use bluetooth for things like wireless headsets (to wireless transfer voice data over the airwaves from your phone to your headset) or to wirelessly sync up data (such as your phone book, notes, to-do lists, etc) between your computer and your PDA or phone.

New ".XXX" Top Level Domain to Create a Virtual Red Light District for Online Porn

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) are the group of people that brought us the .com .net and .org. Now, they have just approved a motion to introduce a new ".xxx" domain that will create a new virtual red-light district on the Internet.

It is no secret that pornography has seeped into many corners of the Internet and it has become increasingly hard to control. The hope is that adult content providers will voluntarily embrace the new .xxx domain in order to relieve pressure from family groups who seek easier ways to block adult content from their children.

Crying While Eating

The Internet never ceases to amaze me with its ability to collect things and then present them on a website. Hysterical AND disturbing.

A non-self-righteous Apple feature post

This isn't new, but it's interesting and fun in terms of new uses for semi-new technology. All new powerbooks have a motion sensor to stop the hard drives to prevent damage in case you drop it. These sensors are quite sensitive, so much so that their output is precise enough to use physical movement of the computer to control programs and elements onscreen:

Just check out the video of playing netball by tilting the computer to see a simple implementation of this software.

It seems like lately, companies have been less protective of their content and more willing to share. The BBC has decided to let users on the web develop their own web applications driven by BBC content by releasing a publicly available API today at
