Ambient Intimacy

Ambient Intimacy

Great post on the disambiguity blog from Leisa Reichelt, detailing how new Web2.0 style tools (including Twitter, Jaiku, Facebook, Skype etc.) are increasing the levels of “Ambient Intimacy” that we share with friends and colleagues

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em – Jaiku

Yes, I’ve signed up to Jaiku. For those that aren’t aware, internet presence awareness tools such as Twitter and Jaiku have been around for about 6-9 months now, providing a means to tell others on the ‘net what you’re up to, thinking, involved in etc, either via a web browser or your mobile phone. You can also sign up to view other peoples messages (“Tweets” in Twitters terminology) so you can keep track of others too.
