I have been using StumbleUpon a bit recently, and have discovered some really interesting, albeit, time wasting site. One that I just found is ASCII-O-Matic. It takes a picture and uses symbols, or blocks, to create a copy of the image. I tried it out using my basic avatar and the results are pretty amazing. Click the thumbnail for a better look.
Not that is will use this for anything, but it is cool, nonetheless!

Have you ever done a search for yourself on the internet? I do it occasionally, as I’m sure some of you do, and sometimes I am surprised at the results I get. A site will appear in the list that I haven’t been to in years, but there is a comment that I made 10 years ago, still there! We leave such a trail or footprint on the internet, and for the most part, I don’t worry about it, but now I have a friend going through a terrible ordeal, and it’s made me rethink what I put out there.
So, I just a search of my maiden name, email address, married name, and Meadows Ling. I get the most results when I use MeadowsLing (one word), but you actually find out the least amount of personal information on me.
So, I’m just wondering, do you censor how much information you put on the internet about yourself? Do you worry about someone stealing your identity, or worse?

A truly wonderful video that I captured while messing around with Seesmic. She loves to play music and thinks that Rock Band is a very cool games. She always wants to play the drums.

So the past few days I’ve been trying to get friends to use some of the web apps that I’ve been using. This is harder than trying to climb Mt. Everest (OK, maybe not that hard)! I keep sending emails out to people with links and invite codes, and so far, I’ve had no takers.
Since I’ve had the lack of friend interest in all of these things, I’m trying to build up my collection of internet friends. It makes me feel a little stalker-ish, adding someone on almost every social media/networking site I frequent. There have to be others like me though. It’s not like everyone started out knowing each other. I think that these are the steps that you have to take sometimes to build up your connections, right?

This kind of goes along with my last post. I think that FriendFeed.com is an amazing site. It’s an easy way to keep “tabs” on what your friends are doing online. I would love to be able to use this tool, but I know no one that uses it. OK, I have one person that I’m following, and it makes me feel like a stalker. Ick! Granted, it’s still relatively unknown, unless you keep up with all of the tech blogs, but I just don’t see me ever being able to get any use out of it. Should I abandon it? Probably. Will I abandon it? Probably not.
