The popularity of Twitter has resulted in an influx of spinoffs. These services all have slightly different functions, but each is built on the Twitter platform. They are intended to extend the how we use Twitter — and the sites we’ve listed here today do that really well.
We recently looked at how to create your own intranet application using the 37signals products. The first step was to get yourself an OpenID. I touched on what OpenID is — a way to use the same credentials to log in to multiple services on the web.
As more services move to using this technology, there will be more people needing accounts. If you don’t yet have one, here is a list of resources where you can get your own.
Many people are particular about the state of their computer when logging on or booting up. They take the time to set certain applications to start at log in or for various application windows to be placed just so. The idea is to have your machine set up in the exact manner that helps you to do whatever it is that you need to do.
But what about the browser? With the focus on cloud computing and web applications, for many people, the browser start page is now the more important item to have set properly so as to meet your needs.
Kidding aside, the web transforms at a rapid pace. Daily even. Ten years ago, when everyone was tying up their phone line and using Netscape Navigator, could we really have seen how we would be sharing information the way we do today? Things have even changed greatly since the idea of blogging started to gain momentum.
In the past couple of years, the ways in which a person can produce content and promote themselves online has increased almost exponentially. One of the more popular tools in this genre has been Tumblr. Sporting a clean interface and a good set of features, Tumblr gives the user a clean, easy-to-use experience and the ability to share multiple types of content.
But once you’ve chosen to go with this platform, you need to style it. And unless you’re a designer yourself, creating your own theme can be an exercise in futility. But not too worry — the team at Tumblr and the Tumblr community in general has you covered. You can head on over to the Tumblr theme garden and select one of the great themes from there.
