post twitter, jaiku, tumblr, pownce at the same time

Are you overwhelmed with your miniblogs, presence sites, and social networking sites. Here’s how to just make one entry and post it to all them. Thanks to frantic industries for providing 90% of the following instructions and the graphics.

You only have to post to Pownce.If you need a Pownce invite I have a few left.To find your Pownce RSS feed go to the following URL:

http://www.pownce.com/feeds/public/springnet/

Of course you won’t be springnet but someone else.

Next, register with Twitterfeed. If you don’t have an OpenID you can get one over at MyOpenID – you’re going to need it sooner or later anyway. Create a new feed in Twitterfeed and add the Pownce feed to it; make sure to uncheck the “Include description” checkbox, and set the update interval to 30 minutes.

TwitterFeed

However, Pownce and Twitter aren’t enough for me; I want to add Tumblr and Jaiku into the mix. The problem with Tumblr is that it won’t recognize the Pownce feed. No worries, though, go to the Twitter feed you’ve forwarded your Pownce feed to, click the RSS icon and add that feed to Tumblr (as text).

Tumblr

Finally, open up your Jaiku profile, click on Feeds (Edit) and add an RSS feed. You can use the Pownce feed or the Twitter feed – they both work pretty much the same.

Jaiku

That’s it – by posting on Pownce you now automatically update all four services at the same time. Now, if only someone would create a Miranda Pownce plugin…

Btw, my Pownce/Twitter/Jaiku/Tumblr stream is a lightweight combination of some posts fromspringnet and some of my personal thoughts. If you’d like to follow any of them, here are the links: Pownce, Twitter, Jaiku and Tumblr.

Twitter.com

Twitter, says the official website is a “Whole World in Your Hands”

What is twitter?

“Twitter is a community of friends and strangers from around the world sending updates about moments in their lives. Friends near or far can use Twitter to remain somewhat close while far away. Curious people can make friends. Bloggers can use it as a mini-blogging tool. Developers can use the API to make Twitter tools of their own.”

Ok… so how does it work?

“You can send updates in three ways: send a text message from your mobile phone, type a message from the Twitter site, or instant message from Jabber or Gmail chat. (support for AIM and other chat services coming soon!) Start by texting the word help to 40404 if you’re in the United States. For international folks, we have different numbers. Write us and we’ll give you yours.”

I heard about twitter from Cote on his drunkandretired podcast.

You can see the twitter plugin on the lower right column of the austincast blog.

Web 2.0 Toolbar

Here’s a plugin for both IE and Firefox that I recommend highly – ptw

From the faq at http://web20toolbar.com

What is the Web 2.0 Toolbar?

It’s a small plugin for your browser that contains all of the most popular content from the web 2.0 sphere in one spot…your browser. The best Social Bookmarking, Pictures, Videos and News all one click away.

Does it Work With IE, FireFox & Flock?

Yes – for FireFox & IE…It does not work with Flock (working on it…love Flock) and I have not tried it on other browsers. Check back ofter to see the updates.

How do I “SUBMIT IT” to My Digg, Del.Icio.us or other social linking site?

When you are on a page you like, just click the “SUBMIT IT” button on the toolbar and select the link site you have an account for…you need your own account on each site to use this. I have also inlcuded the “Onlywire” link that will allow you to post to multiple sites at one time.

Where do I get it?

Right here, Right now (Baby). The Web 2.0 toolbar is a small app that resides in your browser – simply install it and go.

seeking developer for slides web 2.0 project

We think we may have one of the more interesting and exciting web development projects on the net right now. It’s tag based searching with the display output being a slide show.

About 3–4 weeks ago we launched a site call http://web2.0slides.com and it got a surprising instant response. It’s a slide show of 1,400 of the top new web 2.0 web sites. Within two days of in house launch, we started getting blogged, listed, rated, linked to and buzzed about and we couldn’t figure out why. Then we realized it was because we were getting noticed in referral logs by the web masters whose sites we were showcasing in our slideshow.

We’re planning several major releases of http://web2.0slides.com , http://tagslides.com and http://sportslides.com which will expand the idea of web2.0slides into all other major topics and categories that we can develop.

If you’re skilled in php, mysql, javascript, iframes, flash and have an understanding of new web 2.0 technologies, social networking, social bookmarking (a la http://stumbleupon.com , http://del.icio.us http://technorati.com and are knowledgeable about the blogosphere contact us!
