Feedient


I have just started (today in fact) using Feedient, which is currently in Beta development. I use Feedient to follow my Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube feeds in the one place in real time. I guess this is something of an experiment to see just how this new web application goes – so far, so good.

My Recent Online Activity – 25 May 2013


I have been hard at it over the last week or so, including here at Kevin’s Portal. This update is just a condensed version of activities relevant to this site.

 

Genealogy

I have recently signed up to Rootsy, a new genealogy web application that provides a private place on the web for families to build their family tree, record their family history and keep in touch. It’s a fairly basic web application, but I think it has a place and I’ll use it a bit to see if others in the family are interested in joining up over time. Family members can only join as they are added to the family tree and their email address is added.

Health & Fitness

I don’t usually indulge in sharing this type of information, but because I have made such good progress of late I thought on this occasion I would. I have been usuing various web applications and iPhone apps to track my attempts to loose weight. The graph below records some of that information.

 

Video

I have also just joined MideoMe, which is a video social network for recording and sharing short videos. I’ll be using it for short Blogging type videos on the MideoMe site itself at this stage, as there is little functionality at this stage for sharing beyong Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. MideoMe is a new startup and is still in the invite only stage.

Kevin’s Portal: Work Has Begun


Yeah – I have been able to start work on getting the Portal back online and updated. I’m particularly concerned with getting the basics back up and running before I get too tricky with sprucing the site up with a lot of photos, videos, etc. At least each page should be working properly again soon.

The home page has been completed, as well as the photo and video pages, accessible via the directory in the left-hand column. All my video sites are included (I think), but only a small portion of photo-related sites that I currently use. I have also removed a number of redundant sites that are no longer in existence.

The home page has seen a few changes, with all of the social media buttons and widgets removed, the various Blog feeds are now all in the right-hand column and I have removed everything Facebook with the exception of the Facebook link in the site directory. I think this is a far better and working format then I had before.
