STAR ME

Ze Frank's site, Star.me is now officially in open beta stage, and I got a present by answering today's "Mission of the Day":

What was the last book you read? Write the title and sum it up in ONE word.

[Editor's note: I wrote the word, "Unfolding". Could you guess the rest of the book title?]

This site could become a great source of #GoodThing stuff in my worklife. Here is an excerpt from Chris Dannen's article, Star.me Makes the Web Messier, More Fun:

The "joy" of the site, says Frank, is that when your stars accumulate for a while, "the important stuff is going to inevitably surface." By the "important stuff," he means the "why" that sits between you and your friend. Why are you friends? What do you like about each other? Frank says Facebook has done a good job establishing connections between users and the people, brands and artists they like, but that a friend request or "Like" button doesn't say anything about why that connection exists.
Frank, who defines Star.me as "light playspace," says that underneath the fantastical HTML5 graphics is actually "large scale system about identity, relationships and the stuff we appreciate about each other." Naturally, he adds, it's going to be messy.

I gave Maria Gustafsson (@MikuaMaria) a You're Awesome Star and Sina Farhat (@Belola) an Artist star. If you want to give me a gold star, please check out my Kudos page on EGO Sole Trader.

SMALL BUSINESS INFLUENCER

Who would you nominate as a small business influencer? It is time to point out the heroes of capitalism! In a post in 2009, I highlighted Victor Borge as a hero of show business.

Have you voted for the "Small Business Influencer 2011" yet? This event is presented by Small Business Trends and Small Biz Technology.



Here is an excerpt from Hilary A.'s interview with Anita Campbell:

Have you, in your own business, had an experience with an influencer that really made an impact on your outlook or way you approached a challenge?
I have been influenced in hundreds of ways. Consider the technology products we use in my business. We couldn’t have built the business and achieved the success we’ve had, were it not for inexpensive yet powerful technology. We run websites and online communities as a business – I couldn’t imagine doing so without reliable hosting, a dedicated Web design and development team, open source software such as WordPress™, savvy Internet marketers and social media. Behind all of that technology are companies and people with vision – they ultimately made it possible for my business to thrive.
Just imagine if we’d had to launch this initiative in the days before social media such as Twitter and Facebook®. There’s no way we could have built up this level of community support in the space of a month, without social media. We’d have needed a multimillion-dollar TV deal, plus a magazine and newspaper ad campaign to spread the word.

EGO IS ON FJORDMAN'S BLOGROLL

[Editor's note: Nota Bene! This post is an "experiment" in order to see if the mainstream media, the online encyclopedias and the search engines will pick up that Peder Are Nøstvold Jensen (a.k.a Fjordman) has linked to EGO blog.]

THOR'S STORM IN A TEACUP

If you want to vent a bit on the day of Thor (Thursday), check out the Thor's Storm in a Teacup category over at TeaParty.nu. The name of the category is a wordplay with the idiom "tempest in a teapot."

Have you watched the Thor movie?

MIDWEEK ROUNDUP

I am thinking of using Google+ and its "spark" feature for the midweek wrap of links and roundup of blogs sometime in the near future. Do you think that Google will incorporate the hashtag (#) into Google+?
