Frank is using Twitter Tools to summarize his daily tweets on his Wordpress blog. He’s probably guilty that he doesn’t post on a regular basis anymore ;)
I was looking for a similar tool in any case I decide to use Twitter on a more regular basis. LoudTwitter is the only webapp that I found that can summarize your daily tweets and ship them to your blog.
If on the contrary, you are looking to send your blog RSS to Twitter, you can use TwitterFeed or PingVine. For both of them you can define the frequency. I personally use TwitterFeed.
By the time Mr. Karp was 19, a new word had entered the lexicon: “tumblelog,” which referred to short-form blogging.
Fascinated by this new form of blogging, Mr. Karp says he “kept waiting” for one of the established blog platform players to set up a platform for tumblelogging. When, after a year, that hadn’t happened, Mr. Karp decided to do it himself. (The current incarnation of Tumblr launched November 1st; a beta version launched a few months earlier.)
An interesting post by Baekdal about the new upcoming Palm Pré iPhone look-a-like mobile phone:
The unexpected sometimes happens, and the new Palm Pre is very cool - especially from an interactive design perspective.
While there are many similarities with the iPhone in terms of the interface, there are a number of new things that really makes a difference.
First of all is the mode-free approach. All other smart phones (except Windows Mobile) puts you into a “mode”, where you have to complete one thing, before you can do something else.
This is especially noticeable on the iPhone. You cannot, while writing an email, switch over to the browser (or another email), to check something. But you can do that with the Palm Pre. This is an exceptionally important element to having a smooth workflow.
I just learned today that Blizzard Entertainment is preparing Diablo 3.
Diablo is the first game I ever purchased. Before, I always managed to get my PC games from my friends, but Diablo was requiring an unique ID key to play on the Battle.net network. I bought the game the first day it came out and after being installed, I didn’t left my chair for 16 hours straight. 16 hours without a glass of water, some food or even going to the bathroom! I was completely hooked.
So hooked that after two weeks of day dreaming and nightmares I had to give the DVD to my girlfriend asking her to never giving it me back to me!
I’ll played Diablo 2 few years later with some friends online, but it was not the same. I managed to finish the game in few hours and soon as it was done I stopped playing. The nostalgia was not strong enough to get me hook on it again.

Still wondering what I would have to say to the world, I decided to begin blogging in August 2004. At the time I was writing exclusively in French.
Few months ago, my good friend (I still wonder why I consider him a good friend after what he has done!) deleted all the files and images from the server where my blog was residing. The greatest mistake of all has been committed as I like to remind him.
Fortunately all my posts were written in Blogger and published from there by FTP. For sake of posterity, In 2009, I had (and still have) the ambitious project of transferring all my posts from my old blog Le monde de JiPé on this new one: 6ix Passions.
I just begun with a few posts today, and will continue the big task of transferring most of my 230 posts in the upcoming months.
