"Albert Lai... I hate that guy"

I don't know how I missed a entry titled "Albert Lai... I hate that guy =)" on my radar from Michael Corcoran blog, someone whom I haven't spoke to in ages (Hi Michael!).

But the article is NOT what you think it is.

So what's the purpose of this blog posting other than gloating about how people love to hate me?

Well, its (sorta) simple: why the heck do we STILL not yet have a good auto-notification engine for all notifying you of what others are saying about you (specifically you, not just people that mention your first and last name).

Sure Google has news alerts, and technorati kinda works for that(but doesn't alert via email, why, technorati, why?!)... but it would be so much better for folks with common first/last name combinations if they could have a search/name/alert engine that would be intelligently figure out if that personal is actually referring to YOU specifically. Perhaps by using attention trust and FOAF/social network type semantic information (i.e. scan your LinkedIn network to get a better understanding of who is likely to be referring to you)?

Way Over Due Album of MESH

I've been horrid about this blogging thing, so I'm going to try to make up for it by posting a super old album that I never got around to posting... this is a bunch of photos I took and played around with while at Mesh.
