This year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Bill Gates said this is the year of the device. If you follow this blog you would have heard me wax lyrical about my AppleTV, and I'm a dedicated fan of my IPOD. I've got an Internet enabled Blackberry. And I just bought a new digital SLR with upload connectivity. Nothing special here I hear you say, but this is all starting to accelerate. When buying my new camera - which I researched using reviews and ratings to benefit from the wisdom of the crowds - I saw they now sell camera attachments that use GPS that will help you track where you took your pictures, upload them to Flickr, and then track your journey over a map. And then when on Flickr you can benefit from its social and community features. This is like 6 picture degrees of separation. It turns this into a small world through connecting people, but also by connecting places through the geoweb. Watch out for the geoweb, it's still too early, but keep an eye on how it develops in connection to the social graph

I also recently heard of the deal between Plaxo and Comcast - which is known for its cable TV interests. In this deal Comcast also acquires Plaxo. A deal driven by their "vision of making "social media" a natural part of the lives of regular people, not just early-adopters. For example, you should be able to securely post family photos online in [Plaxo] Pulse, and have them viewable by any of your family members, whether they are online, at work, on their mobile device, or in their living room watching TV. And you should be able to discover new shows to watch, based on what your friends and coworkers have recommended."

Expect to see more and more devices connect to the web, and be given social features. The PC and the mobile have already changed the way we connect and participate in communities, it will be interesting to see what happens when other devices start to shape the mainstream.

Heya just stumbled upon your blog via Bing after I typed in, "Blogger: Comments on the social graph" or
something similar (can't quite remember exactly). In any case, I'm happy I
found it simply because your subject material is exactly what I'm searching for (writing a college paper) and I hope you don't mind if
I gather some information from here and I will of course
credit you as the reference. Thank you.

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole
my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be
a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new
comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment.
Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?

Hey exceptional blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a large
amount of work? I've no knowledge of programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject however I simply had to ask. Kudos!
