Interesting TED talk from Clay Shirky on how media has changed to social media and the impact of that on citizens, institutions and government.
I was looking for a way to display my tweets elsewhere on the web – such as on the sidebar of this blog. However, I wasn’t happy with the standard Twitter badge, which mixes tweets on ‘What I’m doing’ with ‘@replies’ intended for individuals. Don’t get me wrong, I value @replies, I just didn’t want them on my badge. If you don’t either, here’s how to filter them out using an RSS feed and Yahoo Pipes.
