Copying Human Life Ways
It's amazing how you can be sensing stuff and then it arrives within 24 hours in some virtual/physical form, the news passed down through the bloggosphere.
Our applications mirror our normal behaviours. If you want to be a smart web entrepreneur this is all you need to, follow nature. This is a Lifesized golden rule. Everything we do naturally we will try to solve digitally. It comes from a design feature deficiency of being human and a hunger to recreate the world through our own hands. Computers enable us to get over our design specs. Remember, most humans don't have:
a) a photographic memory
c) illumimated spectral vision!!!!
So piece by piece we augment our modus operandi with digital tools that harness the new infrastructure which is our new alternative and extended nervous system.(Inspired by the one from inside the human body).
Here are a few notable new social soft. tools for today:
Trumba - An online calendar for (.individuals.friends/family.biz)

and its cash in the bank. Expect this to be snapped up, if done well, by Yahoo's and Google's.
I have a nice UI in development for precisely this area. I want better UI for a personal journal, a personal blog. I like draggable timeline interfaces, next to the list format.
Insider Pages - How do people find someone to fix their plumbing, hair dressers and other services if they don;t know someone already to do the job? They ask their friends. It's so simple because we already do it!
