        Hello,

        Besides blog group at Pecha Kucha this week, there are
        at least 2 other cool events: WebNOB Tuesday in
        Manchester and a Google Sky talk Wednesday at Harvard.
        Details below.

        Babbledog is sponsoring the first WebNOB gathering at
        Jillian’s in Manchester, NH, with Tom Daly, CTO of
        DynDNS to discuss growing an API-based developer
        community on Tuesday, April 8, 6-8 pm. More info:

        ==========

        Subject: Special talk on Google Sky - Wed, April 9,
        8:00 pm
        From: "Christine Pulliam"
        To: cfa-events @ cfa.harvard.edu



        You are invited to a special public talk on Wednesday,
        April 9 beginning at 8:00 pm. Andrew Connolly of the
        Google Sky team will present a lecture
        titled "Inside Google Sky."

        In August 2007, Google launched Sky in Google Earth,
        the first application to provide a seamless view of
        the night sky using images from the largest
        photographic surveys. From exploring the distribution
        of stars in the Milky Way to viewing the formation of
        the first galaxies; from images of galaxies at
        ultraviolet wavelengths to a view of the far-infrared
        and radio sky, Google Sky provides users with a
        framework to communicate and share ideas about
        astronomy. Like Google Earth, Sky is a dynamic
        environment, combining new imagery and features that
        can be tailored to different needs. In this talk,
        Connolly will discuss how Sky came about and the
        technologies it uses for sharing information between
        people distributed around the world. He also will
        demonstrate some of the latest additions and features
        that have been developed by a growing Google Sky
        community.

        NOTE DIFFERENT LOCATION: This talk will take place at
        Harvard University's Emerson Hall, Room 105. Event
        parking is available in the Broadway Street Garage.

        This event is co-sponsored by the Initiative in
        Innovative Computing at Harvard (IIC) and the
        Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA).

        For more information, contact organizer Helene Tingle
        at (617) 384-5912.

          Hello,

          It seems like a lot of folks are shocked by Hugh
          MacLeod's decision to delete his Twitter account. He's
          been writing about all sorts of social media tools on
          Gaping Void for a while, including Twitter. I figure
          some of you Twitter fans might have some thoughts
          based on his reasons.

          If you want to join a bigger discussion, some folks
          are talking about it on Babbledog (that funky social
          news/microblogging site I work on):
          http://babbledog.com/thread/62ae8cd3c8744d10920f6e28a2fb5b76/.
          "Is the trend more hype than substance? And if so,
          what does that mean for the future?"

          Are other folks finding Twitter to be too intense or
          intensive and dropping their accounts? How do
          prominent folks like Hugh dropping Twitter effect
          Twitter? How is that similar to or different from
          losing an endorsement?
