The weather around here is warming up, and so will your speakers after you play this new release. French Techno maestro Jemset presents us with his ‘Untitled EP’. But these beats are so good, the release really doesn’t even need a name. ‘Invitation’ is appropriately the first track, and gets things pumped up with its pulsing groove. Then it’s time to have a seat (or not) for the ‘Galactic Dinner’. Thick and meaty, this tasty track will definitely feed your head and your feet. Jemset definitely brings his own style to the Techno table, and we’re sure you will all agree that it’s a style worth listening to. Enjoy!
Well, I have 6+ years of content on my wordpress site, that’s why.
I just took a few minutes to look at my blog in who knows how long, and I realized that it’s pretty stale. Meanwhile, my twitter feed has been pretty good. When I post things to my blog, I want it to reflect something that will get a reasonable search engine hit count and will be something that begins or significantly contributes to some innovative project.
Twitter almost looks like threaded discussions in a (micro) blog format, but if you were trying to follow two people’s conversation on twitter, um… that’s not easy and/or impossible. Especially if you’re following a lot of people.
I just got Facebook to aggregate my twitter feed. It’s like layers of an onion at this point. Maybe I can get my MySpace page to repost my facebook feed. Honestly, will it help my brand in 5 years to have all that content spread out across multiple platforms? I’m inclined to think not. Facebook, myspace, twitter, friendster, tribe.net, linkedin, ryze, orkut… these all suck from a long term perspective if you’re serious about owning your content. There’s no guarantee that any of them will continue to exist in 5 years… But I’ll bet you a dollar that my domain will continue to exist in 5 years… So, I’m glad that twitter makes it easy to get a feed of my content out of their system because that will make it easier for my to get it into my long term storage and comment aggregating platform â€“ WordPress. (and a thank-you-i-think to Alex King http://alexking.org/projects/wordpress for his twitter tools plugin)
update: Maaan, I don’t know what I want twitter tools to do. I don’t want my wordpress site clogging up with badly titled 160 character posts. And I don’t think digest posts of daily tweets would be good for me either.Â I guess having twitter tools notify my twitter account of new posts works well because then my other pages get notified when I post something big here.Â Ok, yes, that’s worth a dollar-thirty-five.
