Discussion with @ICTRecht and @photomatt on Privacy and Jetpack

I like how twitter enables you to communicate with people you would normally never have a conversation with. Here is a screenshot of a dialogue I had with @ICTRecht en @photomatt (Matt Mullenweg: the founder of WordPress)

Status.net

Up next: status.net!

After yesterday’s successful and prompt installation of piwik, I want to try more nice software that promises to be easy to install: meet status.net an Open Source alternative to twitter.

Of course, this is only going to fly if I can get it to work with twitter to some extend. My attempt to lure everyone from Facebook to Diaspora* was a complete failure and I have no reason to believe getting people to leave twitter will be easier.

Owncloud

I just discovered OwnCloud and ThinkUp. They both look like neat solutions to many problems I had. Going to tinker around with them and will let you know what I think of them sooner or later

Owncloud – use it to create your own cloud to backup files, sync a calender or create your own shortlinks for using them in twitter status.net instead of bit.ly.

ThinkUp – Analyze your twitter, faceboogle status, updates, new friends and loads of other statistics from your own server.
