Happy New Year from Webnomena!
- Social networks – for all the new friends, fans and follower that I now have and for being able to become one for others.
- Social media – WordPress, other great blogging platforms and tools – can you imagine life without being able to generate content by/for yourself?
- For all the interesting web phenomena
- Twitter is working fine for a while now – we only complain when it didn’t work, so it is just fair to say thank you for fixing it.
- For all the great API and web services out there giving infinite mashup possibilities
- Google, the Alts and smart friends; getting questions answered by Twitter friends
- Google Docs – my preferred way for working sharing guest posts
- Many excellent bloggers – there are so many lists out there now including mine from Blogmon
- For being a beta tester – thanks to all the new web apps and tool that inspired me this year.
- For anti-viruses, spam catchers, spyware cleaners and improving OS security (I hope)
- The election is over and America chose new president.
What I’m wishing for in 2009
- More of that same things that I’m thankful for this year:)
- Continue building online (and in some cases offline) relationships
- Easier and better content creation tools using the media of choice
- Doing less log-ins
- Clicking less for getting what that we are looking for and want to accomplish on the web
- Guest posts – in and out
- Scaling social interactions – not leaving message, email, tweet, comment, or review unanswered.
- Twitter Search in Twitter (or Twhirl) – or alternatively TweetDeck support for multiple accounts including FriendFeed – basically, single Twitter desktop client with all the needed functionality to support this life streaming and web-now.
- Better search capabilities for watching TV shows online – geared for real-time and personalized. I yet to see one that does it in Google quality.
- Kindle price to go down (closer to $100)
- One charger fit all – MP player, cellphone, laptop, you name it – or single portable device that does most of it well.
- Saying Happy New Year to all the friends, fan and followers from a single point
- And yes, world peace.
The Boston Longfellow bridge picture is from the beautiful Ron Shoshani photo stream. I love this view and crossing that bridge.
