Need To Shorten Those Long URLs?

15 03 2007

Scoble posted this link on Twitter today and I thought I’d pass it on to you.

Ruby URL is a lot like TinyUrl except created with Ruby on Rails. It shortens your long urls into shorter ones and counts how many letters you are saving. They also provide you with a bookmarklet that automatically shortens any url you are at.





A “Blog” for the ADD Crowd

2 03 2007

I resisted it for a while but now I’m a Twitter. If you don’t know what it is, this is what the website says about it:

Twitter is for staying in touch and keeping up with friends no matter where you are or what you’re doing. For some friends you might want instant mobile updates—for others, you can just check the web. Invite your friends to Twitter and decide how connected you want you to be.

Ok so that doesn’t explain much but just look at my Twitter feed to get an idea. http://twitter.com/DudeGuru

It could be used as a “mini-blog”, an away message, or a personal feed of what you are doing. You can export it as an rss feed or intigrate it into a instant messanger or your blog. Not very useful unless you actually have people who want to know what you are doing all day but its kinda fun to play around with. I heard about it from Leo Laporte.

On another note, if anyone know how I can get my Twitter feed to work in the WordPress sidebar, let me know please.
