Journey of my Blog post

Probably, you are reading this blog post though my Google buzz or twitter or my LinkedIn page.

I am writing this blog in Google docs. I have configured Docs to publish it to my blog. After Google Docs publishes this post to my blog, Feedburner (another application of Google) fetches this post from blogger and using its URL shortening service shortens the URL and publishes to twitter. for which my feedburner is configured. Google buzz fetches it from my twitter account and displays it in my Buzz account and all the friends who follows my Buzz and also the last thing, LinkedIn also fetches it from my twitter account. 

A word can travel a lot......

Microsoft to patch 17-year-old computer bug

Integrate Twitter

In my recent project we integrated twitter library
to connect to the most used social networking site, Twitter.
Day after day twitter is becoming famous and is
also coming up with innovative ideas to interact with
their site from your sites. There are many libraries in
almost all the languages say Mytwitter(php),
AppTweet(perl), Twitter4j(Java) with different types
of licenses. For PHP,Twitterlibphp is mostly
used and it is very easy to implement too.
Just we need to call the library class after downloading
and including it in your site. We can send/reply to tweets,
can get the number of followers/messages/friends.. etc
Twitter library gives you a lot of functions to get almost all
the information from twitter.

e.g code for Twitterlibphp

// require the twitter library
require "twitter.lib.php";

// your twitter username and password
$username = "your_username";
$password = "your_password";

// initialize the twitter class
$twitter = new Twitter($username, $password);

// fetch number of followers in xml format
$xml = $twitter->getFollowers();

What the dog saw

By now, i have become a fan of Malcolm Gladwell. Yesterday, when I saw "What the dog saw", I just bought ifs or buts...I read his earlier books as well. Unlike his earlier books, "What the dog saw" does not revolve around a theme. but it is true to Malcolm Gladwell. It analyses the social events, people in a much different way.
am still in between it. but I can recommend it with high five.
