I stumbled across Facebook's badge feature today. It's pretty nice I must say. Simple, easy to use, and in keeping with Facebook's clean style. I'm on both Facebook and Myspace and I must say I have preferred Facebook thus far. Who knows, maybe Myspace will change for the better. I could do without audio and video clips embedded on Myspace pages. I want to control the noise that comes out of my computer and I make a point to disable all sound effects, warning bells, audible chat alerts, etc. Nothing should get in the way of my music while I'm surfing the web.

I recently tried out TiddlyWiki (http://www.tiddlywiki.com) and I've used it to created a simple page which I plan to update periodically (http://jeffrey.scudder.googlepages.com/PublicWiki.html). It has some information about the projects I'm working on in my spare time, other web real estate on which my face is pasted, and it serves as a collection of blogs and posts in other domains. I've become almost addicted to TiddlyWiki while using it for brainstorming and organizing my thoughts. As I'm writing, I can easily mark a topic for further explanation by writing a WikiWord. It turns my browser into a rich text editor. Quite a nifty little doodad. I'm curious to see what happens when the HTML file grows to a massive size.
