What About Me: An Infographic (November 2012)


 

Consolidation


Being a denizen of the Web for over *shudder* 15 years, I’ve come to notice that I have a lot of junk profiles just laying around. My brilliant idea last night was to consolidate them into a neat package (along with my laptop and Blackberry) so as to provide myself the neatest, tightest Web footprint possible. I’m also in the midst of changing my online identity–having used the same one since 1998. Nevermind the motives, but here’s what I’ve come up with so far:

Facebook remains the hub of all my social networking.
Sites like Last.fm and YouTube get revised and updated with a new login.
Extraneous Google accounts get 86’d.
Extraneous GMail accounts get forwarded to my new primary address.
Sites I rarely never use anymore like Yahoo! and MySpace get the 86.

The other brilliant idea I had was a sort of universal login where I could bypass login screens for the various sites I use. Firefox has the universal password feature, but I want something that will authenticate on all the servers with one login (because, frankly, I’m too lazy to click something again). I did a little surfing and came across OpenID, and it looks like a promising solution. More to come with further research.

What Matthew Needs


What ________ needs
Share

Here’s how it works: Google “[your first name] needs” and share the first 10 results. That’s it: it is that simple. But be honest! Tag the person who tagged you, and pass it on…

1. Matthew needs to bring sexy back.
2. Because Matthew needs to realize it’s possible for him to be wrong….
3. Who thinks Matthew needs to stop asking questions about Regan Smith?
4. Matthew Needs – Plymouth | Facebook
5. Matthew Needs – LinkedIn
6. MySpace.com – Matthew needs more Jesus
7. Matthew Needs (Hansard, 14 July 1982)
8. Matthew Needs
9. Groucho’s family: What Matthew needs.
10. MySpace.com Blogs – New Project, and Matthew needs your help….

Apparently, there’s actually this person named “Matthew Needs” and that kinda buggered-up my results.

In case you haven’t noticed


Yeah, I haven’t made an entry here in nearly a year. That’s because I’ve moved my entire presence over to MySpace, Photobucket, and (coming soon) YouTube. I’m working on a Dispatches podcast that should be up and running soonish. LJ, while it has been good to me as a free blog host, does not allow for the advertising and feedback that MS can offer. Maybe once in a while I’ll blog here, but since most of my readers are on MS, it seems that is where I need to concentrate my efforts.

Atari out.

Egad, I Have A Blog


So I finally got a LiveJournal. No, it’s not going to be like one of those angsty teenage crybaby “pity me” blogs that so permeate the web nowadays, I’ll probably only make entries when something noteworthy happens or if I come across some bit of wit or decide to comment on the state of the world in general. Anyway, this is simply a place to start from, and I shall continue to go forth on the great adventure that is life.

Stay tuned.
