snowing!Jiaa! Got snow falling on my blog!! And, it’s especially delightful as we still don’t have real snow here. :/

(The snow effect is available only until Jan 2nd, unfortunately. So, we must enjoy it as much as possible while it lasts!)

Social features

leave a comment »

Whoa, couldn’t’ve even dreamt to see something like this yet:

For instance, if you land on a Business Week article about IBM, the site will then look at your LinkedIn profile (assuming you’ve given it permission to do so) and highlight the people you know at IBM.

in The New LinkedIn Platform Shows Facebook How It’s Done.

That goes very much to the direction I super-briefly outlined before, even though these ‘features’ are only scratching the surface of the whole (dynamic! real-time?) SNS system.

And LinkedIn was thought to be dead already… Will 2008 bring pervasive social networks? And how will it mash with micro-stuff? The micro-ness is absolutely one of my favourite predictions. Exciting times ahead, hopefully also business/technology-wise (as in speaking of our little startup..)
