Hi, hello, howdy. It's the 13th installment of my weekly web finds. And yes, as you can see here, I've been all over the place. Hope you also find something that is of interest to you.
- Artpad - Another fun online doodle/painting tool. Draw, paint, splatter... and even add text. You can also print, save, or 'hang in the gallery'. Cool stuff.
- Unphotographable - I'm so loving this simple but elegant blog by Michael David Murphy, a photographer who tries to capture all the photos he wasn't able to take using text. To explain why he started this blog, he says: "Unphotographable is a catalog of exceptional mistakes. Photos never taken that weren't meant to be forgotten. Opportunities missed. Simple failures. Occasions when I wished I'd taken the picture, or not forgotten the camera, or had been brave enough to click the shutter."
- Evernote - It looks like a really nifty app for all your notes. Works with Mac and Windows - on your desktop, mobile, or on the web. Unfortunately, this is currently in beta invite-only version. But, I heard they're going to open it up soon. While waiting, you can also request for an account.
- The Community Ecosystem - For some reason, I kept 'bumping' in to Chris Brogan over the last week. He was everywhere online. So, I visited his blog and found this post, which was part of his Social Media 100 series. Really enjoyed his thinking - and the way he presented his info. Can't help but admire folks who seem to 'get' community.
- 10 Compelling Reasons People Read Your Blog - Writing of social media and community, this post by Liz Strauss is another great read on the subject.
- Roald Dahl - A fun, creative site dedicated to the author and his books. This reminds me I still haven't read the latest Roald Dahl book I bought. Yikes.
- Adelaide Bloggers and Social Web Media Group - Gotta put in a plug for the Facebook group that I started for local Online Social Media enthusiasts. Started off as a Bloggers' Meetup group, we've now expanded to all sorts of social media - Flickr, Twitter, etc. We've got a meet-up event scheduled for 18th April 2008, 6pm, somewhere in the City (TBA). Looking forward to seeing how the group evolves.
- Twitterholic - Learn about the Top 100 Twitter users (based on followers). You can also find all sorts of stats for yourself if you use this link (just change username to YOUR username).
Let me know if you visit any of these links and what you thought of them. Happy web surfing!
