These are my links for September 11th through September 16th:
- Google to unveil social networking feature – latimes.com – Probably not news to many people, but clearly Google ramping up the expectations for their much-heralded new social network venture. No doubt some pressure to ensure they get this right, given the lack of buzzz with Buzz and the minor ripple that was Wave.
- Seesmic Desktop 2 Brings More than 40 Social Networking Apps to One Window – I’ve recently installed the new version (have been using Seesmic 1 for some time) and can verify the credentials described here. It’s a great way of joining up conversations that are happening in an increasingly dissagreagrated social web environment. In fact, precisely the approach we are taking with the Knowledge Hub project – sometimes referred to as “Communities of Practice 2.0” (http://www.local.gov.uk/lgv2/core/page.do?pageId=174022). Seems like we’re all suffering from the same problems and coming to similar solutions.
