Every gravatar  submission is rated with an MPAA style rating  before it is made publicly available. This allows implementors to decide on the rating level that is suitable for their site. A "G" rated gravatar is suitable for display on all websites with any audience type. Nothing potentially offensive will be given this rating.I need to add a gravatar plug-in in this blog I guess. ;)
Update: As this blog runs still b2/cafelog/urs-häck, I will not be able to simply add-on those wordpress plug-ins. But worth mentioning anyway [3,4].

Blogger Meeting in Bern
There will be a blogger meeting in Bern in about three weeks time . I will try to attend it. To give it some dynamic I have left a note in the WikiAgenda and trackbacked this event from this post... Just playing ;)
Weblog (wiki) | Social Network (wiki) - urs @ 13:47:16
Update: It just seems that that Wiki trackback does not work anymore. The hosting partner switched to safe_mode which probably causes the problem. I will need to find a workaround.

Playing Skip-bo over the Network
Just found a java implementation of Skip-bo which should run over a network . Never mind if the manual says that the game only works on Windows, I have it running on OS X too ;-)
Social Network (wiki) | Java (wiki) - urs @ 21:43:11
$ java -cp skipbo.jar skipbo.SkipBo... or start skipnet_de.jnlp with Java Webstart. To configure an intranet game worked like this:
- PC1: start a Skip-Server on your local IP e.g. 192.168.0.5
- PC1: enter a Nickname
- PC2: search manually for a Skip-Server and enter the server's address: 192.168.0.5
- PC2: enter a Nickname

SharedID and talkr.net ideas
Both, on SharedID  and talkr.net  have been quite some discussion over potential comment identification resp. authentication systems. The other day I reawakended my crosspost idea based on trust levels with FOAF . SharedID has an interesting demo online, where "a service magically" retrieves your FOAF file to a give email address and finally completes a comment form with the appropriate user data .

What I would like here is a common service API to make that service compatible. Oh, no, I haven't forgotten about George  Orwell ;-)
Megapixel camera phones
Nokia now has a 1 megapixel camera phone too; Nokia 7610 . Sharp announced one earlier: Sharp GX 30 , which is Vodafone live! compatible.
Wireless and Mobile (wiki) | Social Network (wiki) - urs @ 16:19:54
Both phones still do not seem to support the Push-To-Talk (PTT) technology; textually.org has a whole lot of information about it :
Instead of dialling a number, users will be able to highlight a name on their cell phone screen and press a button to talk to them instantly. No ringing, no waiting. http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,,54665,00.html
Similar to Instant Messaging, «Push To Talk» technology will allow users to create a liste of friends (who must first give their OK), enabling them to see who has their mobile turned on.
XFN to indicate personal relationship (lightweight FOAF)
Get an impression on XFN  first:

XFN is a lightweight method of annotating links to indicate a personal relationship with the person responsible for the linked resource, and as such strengthens existing links in a m
