I wonder why the sharing of OPML has never really taken off? The lack of a good and easy to use service? mmm… there’s an idea :)

Between LinkedIn, Facebook, Crowdvine and others, I now have to spend like 10 or 20 minutes every morning adding friends all over the place.

ps: I was playing with Facebook photo albums the other day: it’s better than Flickr. Truly. Better. It doesn’t look as hip, and it’s not as focused on photographers, but it does much more with your social network than Flickr (an area they have always kinda neglected), and the images load faster (I think they just preload the next image while you’re watching the current one, a simple trick Flickr should copy.) Overall, it’s a much nicer social experience, which in turn encourages you to share your own pictures too.

I still don’t like behemoth social networks though.

Hey, Snap started a blog defending themselves against people who don’t like snap (I don’t like Snap previews, they’re just sooooo annoying and 1996).

The fact they felt the need to start this blog speaks for itself I think. And things like “Peter Van Dijck won’t give it a rest” after a blogpost or 2, 3, … bad taste, I feel kinda intimidated almost, not sure why, maybe it’s because they use my entire name. Oh well.

I started http://snapsucks.org to have an easy link that explains why I dislike snap. Now, I have to admit, I understand where they’re coming from. You’ve got a product, a startup, traffic is going well, you work hard, then someone starts a yousuck.com site, it’s no fun. And the Snap guys have been cool about it, defending their product in blog comments and such. But I’m sorry guys. I dislike snap shots, I think they’re bad, and I don’t feel any urge to not say that to people.

Weird.
