Communicate and share through comments

Commenting is probably on its way to emerge as one of the most important digital communications channels of today. With the introduction of Web 2.0, commenting has been established as a base-case functionality. Blogpost, social networks, photo sharing sites, e-commerce shops - all put a bet on the power of comments.

Email must die! This is an event on social software and new it-methods to get rid of the email overflow in enterprises. Organized by Club IT, the rest of the message in German.

Of hunting and farming - using Refinder as a research tool

I do a lot of research. Finding, evaluating and collecting interesting stuff is prerequisite to my work. In this post, I´m going to describe some of the workflows I adopted over time, while using Refinder as research tool.

Managing Activity Streams

The central piece of a collaborative social network is the activity stream. In it´s basic form, the activity stream is a chronological list of content, that displays the activities of users and applications. In the main consumer social networks, activity streams contain the status updates of the people you follow, including their posts of images, videos or links to interesting online sources.

Image previews

Image previews are a nice little enhancement for the Refinder user interface. As a first step towards general file previews, Refinder got enabled to display image previews.

The Shape of Things to Come

"The Shape of Things to Come" is a work by H. G. Wells, which speculates on future events from 1933 until the year 2106. Alternatively it is a song from the movie "Battlestar Galactica".
The shape of Things in Refinder is not at all futuristic, much more prosaic, entirely non-fictious and totally non-speculative, however, Refinder's concept of Thing types can help you very well in your daily work.
