Google and Jaiku

I recently wrote another guest piece for Sarah Perez:

Stocktake time. Despite the fact that Jaiku has everything that the hottest 2.0 properties have, all tied up on one neat basket, Google has failed to get any mindshare at all amongst users and developers. Unless Google has some fiendishly cunning plan for world domination, it really looks like they’ve dropped the ball here.

Click through to read the rest of Google dropped the ball on Jaiku at Sarah’s site, Sarah in Tampa.

I’ve got a guest post up at sarahintampa.com (the blog of Grand Effect and ReadWriteWeb writer Sarah Perez) on the new Nine Inch Nails release The Slip and how Trent Reznor continues to lead the way in ‘music 2.0’.

Over the last few months, Sarah has quickly become one of my favourite tech blogger so of course I jumped at the chance to provide this guest post.

NIN does it again. Are you watching, Thom?


Server problems

UPDATE 15/3/08: everything seems to be fixed now, but if you had any bookmarks they might not work. You may wish to bookmark any pages again. Sorry for the inconvenience and I’m looking into setting up some redirects as well.

A quick spot of housekeeping to say that I’m currently experiencing server problems and that everything except for the front page is returning a 404 error. The problem has been logged with my host but it doesn’t tend to respond all that quickly to anyone outside of the US, I’m afraid.

In the meantime, if you want to reach me try email (shane at techwhimsy.com), twitter (smperris) or Jaiku (smperris) and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
