Without the People, Social Communities are Worthless

Earth Day 2008 – The story behind Earth Day is quite simple, on that day you should be nice to the earth and do something Green. I think this concept is great, it increases our awareness but on the other hand I don’t like the fact that it is “reinforced” on a specific day. Who said Earth Day should be celebrated only once a year? So go ahead and do something (regardless of what day it is) nice for our planet. You can start with: Recycling your old cellular, Getting rid of those plastic bags or Call Capitol Hill and include them with your concerns.

Grooveshark – Grooveshark is the ability to find and listen to any song, share and receive personalized recommendations and purchase music at a fair price with the knowledge that the copyright holder will be paid. There are many similar services (Last.fm, Deezer and SeeqPod). All services offer more or less the same (online music), the difference is the appearance and usability of the site. I found Grooveshark as very appealing and friendly, it for sure will be my first choice however from my understanding of people I noticed that what is good for one is not for the other, so it is your call – choose your Web Radio provider and Please don’t stop the music!

Moshi Monsters – Have you ever considered adopting? And if adopting why not choose a monster, give it a name and design its color scheme. Each Monster has a lively personality that develops the more it is played with. You can nuture your pet by solving daily puzzle games to earn Rox, the in-game currency. Rox can be used to buy weird and wonderful things in the virtual shop to keep your Monster healthy and happy. I have created my “AllMyFaves Monster” and I’m waiting (reminds me of MyMiniCity I built lately) to see how it will develop. This is fun for kids of all ages.

We Heart It – As web users you probably see many images/videos that you feel like bookmarking however the common bookmarking tools enables you to only save the url. With WeHeartIt you can put everything you saw and liked on the same page to look again whenever you want. It is very simple to install, just follow the short instructions and bookmarking has never been easier. This service reminds me of StumbleUpon which is considered the pioneer of images bookmarking.

Dopplr -Dopplr is an online service for business travelers, share your future travel plans privately with friends and colleagues. The service then highlights coincidence, for example, telling you that three people you know will be in Paris when you will be there too. This can work only if all your colleagues are part of this community, well actually this is correct for all social communities, without the people they are worthless.

Twitt Earth – Twitter is considered the largest micro-blogging service. As the biggest and most common service twitter acts as a nutritious application platform which attracts developers and squeezes out there creativity and knowledge. Twitt Earth offers a unique way to view new twittes, it shows the origin of the twitt on the globes. This application is fun and makes the twitting worthy. Feel free to follow me on Twitter, who knows maybe one day all my blogging will be done through twitter .

Etsy – Etsy is an online marketplace for buying & selling all things handmade. Etsy enables people to make a living from making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers. The question raised is what would you prefer buying your child a Handmade Loretta or a Webkinz Kangaroo.

Autoblog – My girlfriend desires a Black BMW coupe, my brother wants a Black Porsche Boxter S and I think a Jaguar will be nice to own. People love cars, A car is an accessory that reflects (mentally and economically) who you are. Autoblog does a great job covering the latest news, shows, types and automakers, in addition they have a section dedicated only to green auto issues. What car do you desire?

Dilbert – Dilbert (first published April 16, 1989) is an American comic strip written and drawn by Scott Adams. Dilbert is known for its satirical humor about a white-collar, micromanaged office, featuring the engineer Dilbert as the title character. The Dilbert site has been upgraded and now features comics with color, animation and if you think you are funnier than Scott Adams now you can edit Dilbert’s punchline. Laugh and enjoy it as much as you can!
