Bloglines revival

Now that everybody's talking about Delicious that was supposed to be killed but now is for sale I wanted to share about Bloglines that had the same almost the same story earlier this fall. It was said to be killed but here it is again. Hurray! I like it so much more than Google Reader, go and check it yourself to see if it works for you.

Prometeus - The Media Revolution

We are planning the Hub Jyväskylä Pop-up event with Mediataivas guys and @janne404 shared this Youtube video. Interesting ideas indeed, thanks :).

So nice that Hub is coming to Jyväskylä :). Pop up there next week if you are hanging around, we'll be speaking there on 22nd Nov around 14.

Started a company

I have been busy with life, during the past month I have moved, lost relatives and started a company of my own. You can read more about that from but in short I am offering social media trainings, consultation and social media content creation. Break a leg with me :).

It was quite a challenge to invent a good name for my company but luckily my husband told me I could use my blog's name. That name was changed this week when I got a call from Trade Register and now my company uses names of both of my social media blogs: Hidden treasure - Piilotettu aarre. :)

Augmented reality by @commoncraft

I love the way Common Craft explains things. Augmented reality sounds difficult but it is not when they explain it :).

Twitter search by @commoncraft

I had not noticed this video before, good work again :).

RSS by @commoncraft

Another video about RSS. :)

Google reader by @CommonCraft

I thought I had had this video here before but could not find it. So find out how to use Google Reader.

Angry birds

I say to myself that I don't play games at all but sometimes I do. Last December I noticed that "everyone" in Twitter were talking about Angry Birds. After hearing the praises long enough I decided to check it and boy was I hooked. And so were my kids. The game is just brilliant - and a huge success too! So see this video from yesterday and learn more about my favorite game. It's coming to Facebook too so maybe I need to start playing in Facebook too - something I have intentionally avoided so far.

Nokia & social media

zzz - I should sleep by now but still one thing: great presentation by @jussipekka about Nokia's social media usage including case examples.

Partly the same slides in this Arto Joensuu's presentation.

But now, good night!

More Wikipedia videos

Oh how I enjoy seeing these videos. :) In July I participated Wikimania in Gdansk and there I met many of these great people volunteering for Wikipedia in real life :). After that I started to contribute more too. :)

Why Wikipedians are the Weirdest People on the Internet

Got this video link from @gpaumier and found it really entertaining. :)

Social media architecture

I like the way Teemu Arina visualizes how the different social media services are linked to each others. It makes sharing very effective: people can choose where they follow e.g. the new blog posts of their contacts: in Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, feed reader... With help of these bot tools we dont need to inform about the new content (status updates, blog entries, photos, videos, bookmarks...) in all of these places. I am using Twitterfeed to help me with Mini treasures wiki - it generates tweets from wiki updates, blog entries and Facebook updates. I could still add feeds from Flickr group pool updates and Youtube actions. Maybe some day...

BTW I am thrilled about my new phone N900 - browsing the net is so simple with it, e.g. this blog entry is created with it.
