My Online Identities
I sign into all of the following sites multiple times per day, looking for friends to add, celebrity news, cat photos... Okay, so I don't, but if you use any of these, you might as well check out my page and let me know you're there. Maybe you prefer a shorter list: you're in luck, I've got brief contact info, too.
Identities somewhat ordered according to how often I use these services.
- Google Profile / Google+
- Google Buzz - almost nobody uses it, but still the social network I find most tolerable
- Twitter - generic microblog
- identi.ca - geek microblog
- Twitter - eco microblog, this is also me.
- LinkedIn - "social job hunting"
- idealist.org - social volunteering/job hunting
- last.fm - music taste sharing
- goodreads.com - elitist book sharing website
- foursquare - social location sharing
- Pandora - musical taste palette enlargement. Using this much less. Ads are annoying, but don't make enough use of service to pay for it
- Amazon - books & media
- Flickr - image sharing
- Youtube - video sharing
- userstyles.org - website personalization
- del.icio.us - hyperlink sharing
- LiveJournal - boring blog
- FOAF - friend of a friend (what is FOAF?)
- ohloh - programmer social network site
- Jaiku - "activity stream"
- Orkut - social networking
- Reddit - social news
Current Contact methods. Higher on this list = favored.
- Google Talk / Jabber: email@example.com (say hi)
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org (write me)
- Text/SMS/Phone: +1 (504) 208-1167
- Postal Mail (I'm in Oregon now, so I might not see it for a while!):
1525 Arizona Ct NE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52402, USA
- Skype: dhrasmus chat / call
- IRC: dhrasmus on freenode.net
- AIM: highcastledan (say hi) - better off with Google Talk/Jabber
- ICQ: 4689648 - using this very infrequently. It's gotten spammy.
You will always be able to find my latest contact information here at danrasmussen.org - Dan Rasmussen
Obsolete Email Addresses. A beacon for my friends from the past.
- email@example.com - first email address ever (1995).
- firstname.lastname@example.org - Stopped using it. Too spammy.
- email@example.com - acquired by Yahoo, if I remember correctly.
- firstname.lastname@example.org - Deleted by $#@! admins after 60 days of inactivity. I'd still like to have kept it. Great browser, crappy email service.
- email@example.com - graduated = lost everything. Now revived (see: employment), but "deprecated".
- Jabber/XMPP: firstname.lastname@example.org - stopped working properly
- Facebook - "social networking." I dislike Facebook. I don't find it to be a satisfying way to communicate with others, and don't enjoy taking backseat to advertisers.
- eventful - Event calendar. I had high hopes for eventful, but it kind of sucks.
