A catch phrase will go here soon.

Plurk.com — Twitter + Talkshoe timeline format = neat.

6/4/2008

After getting my head bashed in with invites to Plurk I gave in today. The result was the image above: 100 invites in about 20 minutes. Such is the cost of internet fame–the weakest form of fame in existence to be sure. :-)

Anyway, Pluck is twitter with the timeline turned sideways and with the ability to embed Flickr images and YouTube videos–a feature pioneered by Pownce.

You can click on a timeline to see the responses.

Frankly, all of these features could just be built into Twitter. I’ve been begging Twitter to support photos for a loooooong time. Obviously introducing photos into twitter would be brutal given the stability issues, but the future of Twitter is clearly supporting multiple views of the data.

I’m really not excited about maintaining a Pluck account, in the same way that I don’t really keep up with my Pownce account. It’s hard enough to have a Twitter account to feed. Why Pluck doesn’t feed in my twitter feed makes no sense to me.

anyway, it’s a cute execution of the TalkShoe/project management chart design.

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.

Other twitter accounts you can follow: Inside.com, Ticker, This Week in Startups and LAUNCH Festival
