Twitter is only for lunch plans and the weather

Learning and Technology

Twitter went down for awhile this morning and it seems to be a point of conversation in the larger social network of the web. Places like Facebook (also having issues today) and Friendfeed pick up the communication connections while Twitter is down. But what I wanted to post about is the fact that many have to "snicker" or react to it light-heartedly.

The web is a buzz over Google Wave. The platform is an incredible communication tool that if realized will change the way we work, collaborate, and learn.

Currently these sub-conversations typically get lost. Impressive, to say the least.

Google Latitude

Learning and Technology

I have been playing with Google Latitude , but the fact that they don't have an iphone app is a real pain. You actually have to open the browser to get it to pick up your location and there is no other reason to go to that page. That isn't very practical. They should connect it to something else, that you actually use, like gmail. I am looking for a solution for my Dad. Does the Droid automatically update latitude? If so how often? Every X minutes? Can you set it? Thanks.
