the blogged snowball effect

most of us know about slashdot effect when a website being /.ed, dugg or farked. but most all of this are short spike that happen only for few days if not hours.

if you want to have lots of regular visitors to your site, you have to be /.ed every week or so... that is quite impossible mission to one man blogger or even for a dozens of good journalist team.

or, the other options is to be 'blogged' or 'blogrolled' by well known blogger.
  • blogged
when some well known bloggers have link to you in their blog posts, this will create some 'snowball effect' when other bloggers who usually read well known blogger to also link to you. unlike spike caused by slashdotted, this effect usually last longer than few days. sometimes, this effect is still rolling after few months after the first blog link to you.
  • blogrolled
when some well known bloggers link to you in their bloggroll. the effect may vary a lot. if the blogroll contain only few links (under 10 links, perhaps), then your blog will get big notice from the readers and better chances for others to put you on their blogroll too. but, if the blogroll have lots of links, your link will get less notice especially if it's sorted someway so your links is not in the top. the effect might be insignificant.

google mail five new features

from those five new features, what i like most is forward all conversation instead of one mail. second is, send offline messages to gtalk friends. third is, actually not to new and i already used it, it's gmail apps on my mobile phone.

wordpress mu vs lifetype

this is based on my experience setting up gobloglah.com to offer free blog hosting to users. here's some features compared:
  • first and most important (for me) is spam protection. my lifetype installation killed by spam because i cannot globbally enable spam protection for all user. while, most users care nothing more than blogging and do not know how to protect themselves from spam comment. with wpmu, you can globally enable spam protection for all users at once. so no worry about users forget or dont know how to enable spam protection.
  • installation of wpmu takes less than 1 minute. simple and straight forward. everything works out of the box. even subdomain for each blog and nice SEO url enabled by default. i installed lifetype at least 10 minutes messing up with config files and not to count messing up .htaccess which take quite some tweak to make subdomain works.
  • plugins. as with spam protection plugins, in lifetype, most other plugins must be setup in per user bases. in wpmu, you can setup plugins for all users at once. and wordpress already have dozens of great plugins and many of them works flawlessly on wpmu
  • users' own domain. wpmu allow users to have their blog in their own domain name. it's not yet officially released as wpmu plugin, but i bet they will, in near future.
  • front page. wpmu default frontpage only display latest site news from admin and latest updated blog. lifetype default can let you see latest post, most active, etc... off course you can tweak wpmu to do that, but it takes more work.
  • ping. lifetype allow you setup where to ping for updated blog.
  • pingback & trackback in wpmu is all automatic.
  • delayed post. schedule when you want your post to be published.
  • interface. most users already familiar with wp interface. it takes me sometimes to get used to lifetype dashboard. and many past users in lifetype have trouble posting blog after they're registered.
  • it is possible to import your old blog to wpmu.
  • export your links in OPML

feedtree: p2p for rss feed

feedtree is somewhat like p2p for your rss feed. currently, each and everyone that subscribe to your feed will make a request to your host/server. one hundred subscribers, mean 100 request. that's eat up a lot of expensive resources (bandwidth & cpu of your server) which in turn you will have to pay higher to host your web/blog.

just like p2p apps that have no central server to distribute files/audio/video, feedtree will distribute your feed between all feedtree users. this mean, save bandwidth and thus save your money. also, this will speed up feed delivery to your subscribers. once a subscriber get your updated feed, all other subscriber get updated too. kind like 'push' rss feed.

feedtree works as a proxy server sitting between your rss reader and the internet. so, you can still use your favorite rss reader, you dont have to worry learning / using yet another rss reader.

new Thinstall @ Citrix iForum 2006

Thinstall is sort of a portable citrix ica client. one self contained exe file allow you to connect to any Citrix server from any windows computer without installation and without needing administrator right. so it will ease administrator a lot of trouble install and troubleshoot citrix installation.
it can be run in a locked down windows where users are given very limited right and cannot install other apps on their own. because, that's how it's design, its self contained and run without installation.

this quoted from their email:
"The upcoming release of Thinstall’s Application Virtualization Suite 3.0 will be showcased at iForum. For those who want a sneak peek, the product will be featured at Booth #510 where you can experience the unprecedented Enterprise Class Application Virtualization. "

mine, i put it in usb flash disk along with all configuration required to access my citrix server. so, anywhere i go with my flash disk, i can easily manage my citrix server from virtually any windows terminal.

i call it 'thin client in a flash'

i have not try out the new version. they said, it can run MS Office directly from usb flash disk. i really like to hands on this one.

Autism & TV Cable

Statistics show very close relation between children autism and early childhood watching tv cable

To 3g or not to 3g

Operators are pushing their 3g service to users. With all marketing and promotion to attract users to use 3g.
Even the 2g gprs service is not yet widely used. So will all these 3g stuffs sell?
Or, the real question is What it takes to sell it?
There's TWO key to sell these kind of service:
1. User friendly
2. Cost

take the sms case. Sms is superb easy and not too expensive. The cost can be easily calculate by anyone. One simple cost per sms.
See also email. It practicaly cost nothing more than your internet cost. And also very easy that anyone can learn in few minutes.
When operators and phone makers can successfully target both those point, 3g WILL be next 'killer app' just like sms and email.

In the mean time i see 3g nothing more than faster internet connection.

mobile blogging howto

recently sonyericsson invites blogger.com to teach their user how to moblog.

but, you dont need sonyericsson or any specific mobile phones to do moblog.
there are many ways and many apps can help you moblog.

i list some of them here, with their pluses and minuses:
  • sms. only available to some blog host and/or some mobile operator.
  • email. any devices can send email can do moblog. and lots of blog host support this
  • kablog. there's free j2me apps which can works on almost any mobile with j2me support. and also there's native symbian apps that cost you money. j2me version dont support tagging.
  • nokia lifeblog. free with some nokia mobiles. can be purchase for other symbian mobiles. cant save draft. no tagging.
  • shozu. this is my favorite. support tagging, photo/video uploads. cant post text only blog. too bad, the background process use quite some ram. but currently, i just disable it from startup and only use it when i want.
  • bluepulse
  • picoblogger from picostation.
  • yahoo zonetag.
  • wap browser. some blog host accessible from wap browser.
  • web browser (netfront/opera). but it'll be slow with too many images ads etc...
update: now i use picoblogger more often. coz, it can upload multiple photos in one blog.

get your free drink from cloud-in-a-box


with this $35000 machine, you can drink all the water in the air for free.

"The machine can generate 120 gallons per day out of the air, or 1,000 16-ounce bottles of water. It runs on 50 gallons of diesel fuel, which Richards said is usually more available after a storm. Wright said one gallon of diesel can fuel the production of 10 gallons of water. "


will be very usefull in Indonesia, where some districts will run out of water sources in the dry seasons.

A desk is capable of supporting 10 million microbes and the average office contains 20,961 microbes per square inch, according to research.
Desks are really bacteria cafeterias
Charles Gerba, microbiologist The key offenders are telephones, which harbour up to 25,127 microbes per square inch, keyboards 3,295 and computer mice 1,676.
By contrast, the average toilet seat contains 49 microbes per square inch, the survey showed.
