I’ve started a new blog about a recent passion of mine: The Internet of Things.
The site Linked Things will accumulate information about products that are connected via the internet or local networks and can be controlled, combined and programmed.
Currently I’m aiming for one new post per week, but if you’ve got links or ideas please use the contact form on the page to send me your messages so I can gather as much data as possible about the internet of things and up the volume of posts with your help.
And please spread the word!
I recently started to manage my bookmarks via del.icio.us, a social bookmarking site. My main focus wasn’t the social aspect of the whole project but the ability to categorize bookmarks with tags, which has already proven to be very efficient for searching & finding. A very handy tool, for all Mac OS X users is Cocoalicious, which is a desktop client for adding, searching and managing del.icio.us bookmarks.
Today while scanning through my flagged RSS news items I (re-)discovered a recent post at Lifehacker that explained how del.icio.us could post your recently added bookmarks to your blog via XML-RPC. I followed the instructions, which where quite simple, with one exception: I couldn’t figure out how to set the time of the posting, so I just left it with “0” … let’s see if the service works and when the posting is going to happen 😉
So be prepared to get an (almost) daily update of stuff I find on the net in this blog soon!
On a side note: I am currently testing a great AJAX powered shoutbox, which I installed in this blog’s sidebar. All you RSS only readers, head over to the HTTP version, and give me a shout! 😉
