Circle: The Local Network
Tue, Dec 10th 2013 11:58p Stuart McIntyre Circle is the mobile app that’s in the know, anywhere you go. Circle keeps you up to speed by adapting to your location and letting you view what’s happening near you, now.
Our goal is to build on the lessons learned from traditional social networks to make a new kind of community: positive, local and useful, wherever you are.
Each month, more than a million people are joining Circle for real-time information and conversation about nearby crime, traffic, natural disasters – as well as [read] Keywords: community
IBM Connections Activities: too many nodes
Tue, Dec 10th 2013 9:50a Stuart McIntyre Hit this issue the other day with a customer (and yes, it was a mammoth Activity!)… Here’s the IBM technote (emphasis mine):

Anyway, another example of a fantastic service that is US-only right now is the New York City-based startup, Oyster, which has been termed th [read] Keywords: google

How to stop FeedBurner from uglifying your clean URLs
Fri, Dec 6th 2013 10:00a Stuart McIntyre I’ve had to do this a few times in the past, so found myself googling it again this morning when I was updating some feeds…
If you use a Feedburner feed to allow others to receive posts from your blog or site, you may see URLs like this come through:
So what causes the nasty and very additions to the URL (the bit that starts with ?utm_source)?
