Google, Sex, & Elliot Spitzer

March 13, 2008

Ashley Alexandra DupreYikes. Not your typical headline but… that is exactly what the American public got this morning in newspapers & media outlets across the country. The governor has left the building. How does such a righteous pundit of all good and clear smear such an ascending career? Easy, the man was human. Find out more about the woman, Ashley Alexandra Dupre, on her Myspace page.

The man likely curious after his attorney general investigations unveiled, the now infamous, “Emperors club” What was it? Could I take a peek? Use a little blackmail? Fight evil for my family & state and then take a sip of the nectar? That’s not so bad is it? No, not really, unless your the attorney general that fights for the moral cause. Or a senator from Florida that saves youth and pages interns to come over, or a pastor that callspitzer call girl homosexuality tha bain of existence and engages in it, then lies about it, or a mediocre business blue blood that decides late in a human’s life he wants to go into politics and do things his way no matter how many die, or nations are scored.

Ahhh to be human. To be human is to fuck up and move on. pick up the pieces, pull yourself together, what it maybe and anything it takes, we gotta keep this thing turing ’round for us and if we are to survive, forgive, and keep having sex.

MySpace + Google = LinkedIness. Is Facebook Ready to Rumble?

November 2, 2007

 

Google & MySpace are taking on the growing (threatening) Facebook crowd and the ENTIRE developing community.

Why? Bling & because they can. How? Search baby. Lots & Lots of search.

That means more that simply “Rachel Ray Gum care” it means, when you are looking for people on MySpace, your eyes are gazing over tonns of ads, which Google wants to promote through its adwords system (adsense not so much.)

Oh… well, strange bedfellows. Hardly.

iF you remember in internet dog years Google & Fox’s MySpace inked a 900 million dollar ad partnership. iRemember at the time how funny it seemed that Google would pay that much for a company, Rupert and his Aussie crew paid a nickle under 600 million USD for. Hmmm, what was going on back then?Well, iFigure Google tried to work the social networking thing with lobbiest and behind closed doors as it built up a plan b, back-up plan is hugely popular google services like, iGoogle & Gmail 2.0whatever didn’t take off… well they didn’t not at the rate Google is used to anyhow, y’know like how their stock have tripled twice and then some (about 8x since the initial IPO.) ay ay ay.So what now?

myspace google

Watch the deals unfold. Google announed this Open Social Circle thing the other day, it sounds pretty bland actually, but if you read between the lines it get V-a-r-r-r-r-y interesting.Google wants to double the size of the internet. Like.. that. iThink they announced the open social to see what we (the public) thought, not much, so they waited a day and announced MySpace, Bling! Like Lassie’s ears when Timmy drops in a well, we are listening, and this is what they said…

“MySpace, the world’s largest social network, and Google, Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) today announced that they are joining forces to facebooklaunch OpenSocial— a set of common APIs for building social applications across the web. The partnership spearheads an initiative to standardize and simplify the development of social applications. Today’s announcement underscores MySpace’s commitment to supporting standards that foster innovation in an increasingly social Web.

That’s from the press release, here is what some of the key players said…

NYT Article, ” Jia Shen, the chief technology officer of RockYou, a top developer, said his company would still concentrate much of its efforts on Facebook. “Facebook is still the default social network you are going to go with right now,” he said.

MSNBC dice. “”In the short term, you could view it as Google and MySpace on the one hand, and Microsoft and Facebook on the other,” said Ray Valdes, an analyst at Gartner, pointing to Microsoft’s advertising partnership and recent investment in Facebook. “There are others yet to weigh in,” he added, including internet giants such as Yahoo!, Ebay and Amazon, all of which maintain a certain amount of “social” data on their users.

linked in googleFacebook has become the focus of intense Silicon Valley buzz since it opened its site to outside developers in May. That move sparked a flurry of interest as professional and amateur developers raced to build new features that took advantage of the connections between users on the Facebook site.

However, Facebook uses its own proprietary technology for this purpose, meaning that applications written for its site cannot be used elsewhere on the Web. That contrasts with Google’s new OpenSocial technology, which seeks to establish a standard that can be appliedscary google across any network that uses it.”

And on and on… Everyone wants to make is MSFT & Facebook vs. Google & Everyone else… Well that isn’t a fair fight, especially when you throw myspace & google together with linked in, orkut, bebo, and god know who else.

The most intersting thing about this is WILL the google devloping source for open social become, an open source social? The quote from the FT/MSNBC article is right, history is betting against “forced Devlopement” crap, the Open Development Association cancelled its support of the Open Document today (why, i know now) yet, that was being pushed by one msftassociation… microsoft pushed .asp over .php javascript lives and java dies… its all very interesting and makes me want to think about italy for while where the us vs. them isn’t so important, its betting on the right horse, and making sure that the horse you picked it the one that will win, and lord knows fox has tricks up its sleeve, salude!

PS check the new firefox open source plug in for a great italian song that came on and inspired me… anyway, what r ur thoughts?

Leopard is all hype.

October 27, 2007

 

Yup, iSaid it….and its true. Here it is Halloween weekend in 2007 and the best dressed costume of the year came from Cupertino. Leopard (OS X) is nothing special. At. All. iBlogged some digg crap calling it a “tipping point” dang, i’ve seen Malcolm Gladwell speak live, even met the man and i am willing to bet he IS NOT considering this marginal OS upgrade a “tipping point.” Or even gives a crap at all. iF Anything it gives MSFT time to kick the sh*t out of Apple again. Sure they got the momentum, SJ (Steve Jobs) will retire within this time frame. He came, he saw, he kicked f”ning ass. But Bill Gates did well too, they both did, and after Leopard, iPhone, iPod and the 45 nm paradigm shift has occured… iPredict Steve will retire. He should in my opinion, obviously he can do whatever he wants forever, he started Apple, he revived it, he made the keypad on my MBP glow, i owe him a foot massage and as awkward as that would be, more awkward still would for Steve to keep, “innovating.” Zaxxon high score reached. Time up. Not “game over…” Anything goes in bidness, but really, for this round, “time up.” Aside from a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, endorsed motor oil, or personal Hallmark division i don’t know what else the man can do, b/c he HAS DONE EVERYTHING.

Should iStart a Facebook blog or MySpace Blog? Start a WordPress blog.

October 11, 2007

Where to start your blog? Facebook? MySpace? A YouTube Video Blog? Hells no. WordPress baby. There is much more functionality on having a wordpress.org selfgodzilla hosted blog, but WordPress.com is truly a great system. AND, unlike blogger, vox, typepad, etc. WordPress is open source. Just like parts of Leopard. So get wth the program and lets make the EFF, W3c, and that important committee that sets internet standards happy and keep it fresh, clean, and open source. Self-less WordPress plug, go go godzilla!

How tall is Godzilla?

Where does he go after a fight?

Why does he fight?

Has he been to France?

Is Godzilla really a male, can a god be male?

All this and more, beginning here. Godzilla’s favorite weblog, just follow the rabbit.

 

 


Sex, MySpace, And Pandora’s Box.

September 28, 2007

Long time since I’ve scribed one of these, so considering no body needs too much at once, i’ll keep thisiran map post short. Well, some people say you can have too much, and some say not enough, for me, i’d say it depends on the day.

What are we talking about here?

Sex or MySpace? Both.

A recent study suggests that one out of eight relationships are now started on-line. I would like to contest this with simple seasonal spirit, the season of ghosts and goblins, and all things creepy.
