The wheel of friends

September 24, 2008

Our friend Carl-Johan “CJ” Sveningsson is a recent Facebook junkie user. He has analyzed what social cluster his facebook-friends belong to. The result is an overview, a social wheel, of his connections. Fascinating stuff.

The Friend Wheel Facebook-app can be found here. Read CJs blog post here.

Mobile call termination might change in Europe

September 3, 2008

This will have a big impact in Europe if the legislation comes into effect.

I think it’s actually a bit fair that both parties pay for the call (as long as the phone sales people won’t call me…. Now if they would pay me for the call on the other hand it’s another matter!), this is also the way it works in the US, and will open up for more possibilities for companies like us to add value add services in between (in a away that is cost neutral for the customer in terms of the call itself).

Now I am not sure if it will hit the pre-paid subscribers as hard as Vodafone predict though.

Visualizing communication

June 4, 2008

A very cool blog to follow is information aestethics. It’s a blog about visualizing information so that humans can understand it or perhaps see patterns or new insights in it.

They point me to some graphics generated by an application running on a Symbian phone that monitors how the user uses the phone. A bit more interesting than your typical “latest calls”-list, don’t you think?
