Notice from Mixi (or, “How do we know we know each other?”)

      Mixi says that my invitation function is currently disabled, notifying that they ban the act of inviting, in public, someone I don’t “know” such as in the bulletin board. In my previous post (a blog, that is),

A blog is a home

to be sure, blog is personal as advocated by many such as dave winer. so i used to think Blog=Person. The notion of “home” and “away” applies here. On the other hand, the emerging messaging tools such as Twitter and

Find folks via gmail being disabled, tentatively or what?

I have found “find folks via gmail” feature in twitter, linkedin, facebook, and plaxo quite powerful and, as Fred Wilson described, inherent in social networking.  To me, the situation is, in a way, the gmail database being utilized (exploited?)by other platforms especially facebook,

who is mixi id =1?

Interestingly, it is MIXI CTO http://mixi.jp/show_friend.pl?id=1 and id=2 is its president http://mixi.jp/show_friend.pl?id=2 . Obviously, the Word of Mouth (WOM) spread from these two guys, via invitation after invitation after invitation. By the way, the face of mySpace Tom immediately becomes

What gyao doesn’t get

User interface is a passion

“User interface is a passion.” No, he didn’t use that phrase in his presentation. Or, might not even think so by himself. But that’s what I read from the presentation made by the founder of del.icio.us, Joshusa Schachter. Somewhat technical,

Why hesitate?

Among Japan’s major newspapers, Yomiuri, Asahi, and Nikkei, I could not find any XML or RSS guidances in their respective top pages, whereas it is so easy with nytimes.   On the other hand, both my.yahoo.co.jp (my yahoo) and Google ( personalized page

mixiGraph

While I have not been explicitly conscious about mixiGraph until a few days ago when one of my MAIMIKU, Ben, introduced it in his diary at mixi, I would say mixiGraph is such an amazingly powerful tool. It shows the
