    Oliver Burkeman wrote an excellent review of SXSW for the Guardian yesterday. It included the following factette, which is as intriguing as it is disturbing. Can it really be true?

    Not long ago, according to the new-media guru Clay Shirky, the Sudanese government set up a Facebook page calling for a protest against the Sudanese government, naming a specific time and place – then simply arrested those who showed up

    Picnic 08: AllofMe allows you to archive and arrange your personal social history 

    Have been tuning into the webcast of this year’s Picnic Conference in Amsterdam. The stand-out presentation, for me at least, was by Addy Feuerstein who pitched his new All of Me web application.

    What AllofMe allows you to do is “aggregate and manage personal digital assets”, which means that you can essentially archive your various histories from different social networks and arrange them in a convenient timeline. From what you could see in the presentation, the application looked a bit much like the Nokia Lifeblog. But where All of Me could succeed – and Nokia hasn’t really – is that it pulls personal data (the aforementioned “digital assets”) from networks you already belong to, rather than the handfull selected by Nokia. As our membership to these networks mature, we will naturally want some place to arrange and archive them and I can see something like AllofMe being very popular.

    Is everyone here? Good, then we’ll begin 

    Clay Shirky

    Originally uploaded by Joi

    NYU’s Clay Shirky was in London this week to promote his new book Here Come’s Everybody. I was lucky enough to interview him on Monday and my efforts published in today’s Technology Guardian.

    Shirky talks about how the nature of organisation is evolving because of cheap access to communications technology. I also mention the launch of the Encyclopedia of Life, a thoroughly ambitious attempt to document the 1.8m species on the planet using a similar organistational structre to Wikipedia
