Status Broadcast through Ping.fm

I seriously started using Ping.fm & I must say I’m finding it very useful. The status updates across my networks are quick – in fact Facebook & Twitter are super quick. There are some bugs – my Linkedin status is still not getting updated but I’m sure that will get sorted out shortly. What I like about Ping is its simplicity & multi-device/platform approach. I don’t necessary have to go to the website to do it. I can simply do the updates through emails, msgers or even my iPhone/Blackberry. I know it can be used for many more applications than just Status Updates but I’m yet to fully explore it.

FYI – .fm is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Federated States of Micronesia, a group of islands located in the Pacific Ocean. Just like .tv belonged to Tuvalu – another Pacific Ocean Island. Two small Pacific Ocean Islands controlling two most important media domains – TV & FM – interesting isn’t it?

Strong recommend to try Ping.fm

Everything n.0

I’m kind of tired of hearing progressive version numbers given to different aspects of marketing & technology – Content 1.0, Web 2.0, Media 3.0, TV 4.0, Print 5.0, Search 6.0… they keep cropping up in discussions, briefs, conferences, presentations etc. They’re used very loosely and most people who use these terms don’t even know the real meaning of it. Guess how many times I heard something n.0 this week? 28 times. Thats more than 7 times a day over last 4 days.

Who the hell cares about n.0? NO ONE. People (not consumers) care only about how a particular technology or application or content can make their lives better, entertain them better, connect them better and give them the information that they want. We (industry) keep throwing these jargons as it allows us to project expertise.
