Lately I am enjoying Amplify, to share and discover news and start interesting discussions with other users. Perfectly integrated with Twitter (incl. retweets and @replies) and sharing with other services, it's not an aggregator as FriendFeed. Who else is there or wants to give it a try can find me at http://flapic.amplify.com or add a comment here

To share (and "amplify") there's a bookmarklet or a Firefox extension. Soon the Chrome extension. - Flavio
Wow, their bookmarklet is far better than Posterous' - wonder if amplify will catch on... - Mitchell McKenna
It's not just the bookmarklet. On Posterous you select something and make an entry, that can go to one or more services, but it's basically just a blog entry. On Amplify you have a community that can comment, recommend, retweet what you wrote and amplify it more and more to their followers and so on. That is the power of it! I never had so many retweets like since I started to use Amplify. - Flavio

"Advertise" - Ali from Bookmarklet

You mean they are coming down heavily on advertising and spam in Jordan? - TrafficBug

Six Apart Opens Up TypePad APIs, Relaunches Pownce As TypePad Motion <--- what do you think of this?? - http://www.techcrunch.com/2009...
Six Apart Opens Up TypePad APIs, Relaunches Pownce As TypePad Motion <--- what do you think of this??
Six Apart recently added some Posterous-style microblogging flavor and real-time blogging capabilities to TypePad, but is now switching to full throttle with the launch of TypePad Motion. The new service is the inaugural open source app built by Six Apart developers for the new TypePad platform and incorporates many of the features of the late Pownce. It’s also reminiscent of Jaiku, Tumblr and the recently introduced Yahoo Meme service. - Jannifer @wordsforliving from Bookmarklet

Gaith, please check if a story has already been posted into the rooms before you do. I've had to delete a number of your posts because they'd already been posted in there. Cheers - Zee.

I like the article, especially as so much of what is reported is western centric. I also like the idea of a site that's called 'Arab Crunch'! - all about everyone

well at http://arabcrunch i report about Jordanian and Arab startups also Arabs in the west, or western startups in the Arabworld and thanx all about every one :) - Ali

The web is going more open and social as we all know and we love it aren't we?!  because we are connected,up to date. we can interact with others , share stuff and many more things we do on social networks . But  classifieds and auctions  has alwyas been local!!! should it catch up with the rest of the web and go social too? will it add value to buyers and sellers? is it the right time for a social marketplace ? I mean it's 2009 !! Have your say, What do you think?
Craigslist? That is a marketplace and it is as local as you need it to be. - Vincent E. Epps
I totally agree with you. I think that Craigslist and eBay has taken that first step to connect people from other parts of the world. Now it just needs to take it a notch. - Elaine Lee
Then there will need be a new definition of local. - Vincent E. Epps
Nobody is talking about replacing Craigslist or ebay.there are so many sellers from Craigslist and ebay promoting their products to people on facebook,twitter and other social networks. i mean they're not doing it just for fun ! and there are so many people they'd rather buy or sell somthing from or via someone they know. and no there s no need for new definition of 'local' i think Socializing a local marketplace (social marketplace) would be a better solution for both buyers and sellers - Nas

"If you receive a Facebook mail today with the subject line “CoooL Video”, don’t click the link. We’re getting reports of a Facebook scam which causes infected users to unknowingly send out Facebook mails to their friends containing that subject line. The links in the mails go to various places, including a blogspot blog (see screenshot below). Of course, clicking the link earns you an unpleasant dose of malware. Facebook, to give credit where due, is becoming increasingly proficient at stomping out such scams: the last one to cause issues was around two months ago." - Susan Beebe from Bookmarklet
How wondeful- wondering when we will begin to see "'scam's" here in FF !! - Peter Dawson
I got burned by this. Had to system restore to get past it. It downloads a binary file to your machine. - Vincent E. Epps
oh man that is bad! - Susan Beebe
Is it still something to look out for? - Michael Fidler

Good counterpoint to the "smartphones will take over teh world!" meme. - Ian Betteridge
2 out of three. I have 2 of the phones illustrated above sitting unused in a desk drawer. The ugly duckling in the middle never crossed my doorstep. - Gilbert Harding
Actually I have 3 of those Nokia 5130's, excellent phones. - Gilbert Harding
ya most people in the world are poor and do not have enough money, but i believe over time smart phones will be as cheap as dump ones - Ali
