Baptême.com

Deux nouveaux noms de domaines @praized hier (je vous les ajoute quand ils sont prêts).

Nommer les projets avec un URL, c’est un rituel de baptême après la naissance d’une idée…

Je suis très content de ce nouveau projet, retour aux sources initiales de Praized et projection de l’avenir en même temps, ça sent le printemps, le renouveau… très énergisant!

Fascinating post on “hacking” Foursquare

This is about the intersection of the social and the technical, I love it.

At some point last week, I devolved into a 12 year old hacker, and I spent many spare hours (and my computer’s spare cycles) abusing the system with a set of scripts operating fake accounts. Not only did I add new venues like the North Pole, but I started persistently checking into coveted landmarks, like the Statue of Liberty.

What can I say? It was fun, and foursquare’s incentives (badges and mayorships) spurred me on. Incentives invite abuse, even from mild-mannered folks like me.
