Hello my blog followers.

Are you still there?

Feeling abandoned?

Well, You should, and I’m sorry about my poor blogging skills.

I shifted most of my social media activity to the micro blogging service twitter leaving this space for more “serious” posts and thoughts. I invite you to follow my twitter micro posts at http://www.twitter.com/nirofir

BTW: Does anyone knows about a tools that takes my daily twitter post and post them in my blog?

searchme looks cool!

Searchme, is a new visual search engine with clustering. I always looked at google and search engine as a browser that takes me wherever i need to go. Sometimes I even type the name of the site i want to go to in the search field and not in the address bar, it’s easier and faster. Searchme seems to take this one step ahead and become a better “browser” than google (if the search result are good).

here is a demo

The bubble is flat. In 2008, the the only advantage in developing web apps in the US is the marketing and funding advantage – being close to the web 2.0 clique in the silicon valley.

It might be if they will gain momentum and will adjust their features and content to the local culture.
Here are the cloned facebooks of China and Russia:
