Web.NET Conference: find it on social media

Apart from the obvious twitter and facebook, the Web.NET Conference is using a few specific social networks. We are also on: Geekli.st – A social network for “geeks” OleaPark – A conference specific networking app Lanyrd – A conference social directory I’m going to explain a bit more what they are, and for we have decided to use them. Geekli.st Probably I should have added geekli.st in the first line of this post, next to twitter and facebook after the adjective “obvious”. If you are a...

Does Twitter Lists need Twitter Topics?

Last week Twitter pushed the new feature of Twitter List to everyone. But after few days of using it and from comments of other users I’m seeing some fallacies of the feature. Here are some of them: why am messages from people I follow and are in a list appear twice? what is the difference between following someone and following a list he/she is part of? if someone did a “asp-net-mvc” list, why is he getting also my tweets about my tweets about my trekking? ...

Twitter is crowdsourcing the translation to Italian, and I’m part of it

This news it’s a few days old, but if you hadn’t heard of it yet, Twitter is going to be available in more languages: not only English and Japanese, but also Italian, French, German and Spanish. The cool thing is that the interface is not being translated by a team of professional translators but by a selected number of users. And I’m happy to have been invited to help the translation of Twitter to Italian (notice the “Translator Badge” at the top right corner of my profile page on Twitter). There are many considerations that can be done about...

Oxite: what’s new and how to stay up to date with it

As probably you read somewhere else, a few days ago the Channel9 team released the latest version of Oxite. If you remember, when it was first released back in December, there was a lot of negative feedbacks, but now it seems like the latest release contains a lot of refactoring. I think I’ll start to play with it. All the team members have a blog (which runs on Oxite, of course) and they posted some blog posts to explain the new changes. Duncan Mackenzie, which is the PM, wrote a post explaining the PR...

Hooked up on HundredPushups

Like the drop carves the stone, Rob Conery’s tweets about his pushups convinced me to try the HundredPushups program. What is this program about: you do a startup test, with this results you start a training program. After 6 weeks of training 3 times a week you should be able to do 100 consecutive pushups. Rob also started a twitter challenge you can take part and this seems to have become the ALT.NET-ian trend of the moment: yesterday evening I did the test and I got the do 15 pushups. Next monday I’ll start week...

Twitter upside-down

That's one of the strange things that might happen in a software: why does twitterific write the name upside-down? twitter

Twittering Again

Last June Steve Harman convinced me to start using Twitter. But when I came back to Italy I stopped using it, both because of the continuous outages and because I lived for 3 months without an always-on internet connection. Last week I decided to start using it again: I installed Twitterrific on my my Mac and Snitter on my PC laptop. So, if you are interested in knowing what I am doing between blog posts: twitter.com/simonech twitter

Twitter Publisher for CC.NET

Thomas Freudenberg, an active blogger and CS MVP from Germany, just released a very useful CC.NET publisher task: Twitter publisher. I joined the Twitter band-wagon more or less one month ago, and I'm using Twitteroo to receive my "friends" notifications on the desktop, so I think it will be a good idea to receive a notification every time a build is triggered on the Subtext build server. I downloaded the publisher, installed it on Subtext build server, added 2 lines of configuration in the ccnet.config file and in 5 minutes I had the twitter publisher up and running. After you change the...

Twittering

I joined twitter a few weeks ago, after Steve asked me if I was on Twitter. But I was a bit reluctant posting this on my blog because I didn't get the point of reading what others are doing, or saying to my list of followers what I was doing at any give moment. Not that now I get it completely, but more than I did when I signed up a few weeks ago What is Twitter? Someone (don't remember who, sorry for the anonymous citation) said that twitter is what you do between a blog post and another. Someone else says it's like a chat,...
