Now you can know what your friends are doing every few minutes, or read their weird and random thought-fragments, or as Mashable puts it, it's The Evolution of Blogging, Cat Version: There's a public stream, which is a bit like standing at the end of a driving range being hit by golf ball sized thoughts from people you don't know. But I think there is more to it to that, not that I know exactly what it is yet. You can see what I am doing here, but I think I will be lucky to post more than once. There's a more serious discussion about it by Ross Mayfield.

Paris half-marathon

I ran half a marathon in Paris the other week. Although the training plan was pretty loose (and some weeks non-existant), the run itself was not that hard for most of the way. I only really started to feel it in the last third of the race, especially between the 15th and 18th kilometre. Then the last few kilometres seemed to take forever, until Angella encouraged me to go a bit faster near the finish, at which point I managed to pick up the pace and it seemed easier all of a sudden. So having run most of the race together with Angella, I finished looking over my shoulder hoping she was behind me. I ended up about 30 seconds ahead of her at 1 hour 55 mins.

Big media rushing to cash in on MMOs

Over in San Francisco, the BBC reports on how millions are being wasted invested into Massively Multiplayer Online Games:
"Five years from now a social networking site without a 3D universe will look like a dinosaur."
Another Gaming CEO:
"You are about to see, and this is happening already in Asia, many different kinds of games that are massively multiplayer and less based on role-playing games... This medium is going to destroy TV - and it's going to happen in short term."
How many times have we heard 'this will destroy TV' before. I'm not holding my breath....
