New OW Video Interview on CenterNetworks

Yesterday morning I had a fun time doing a video interview about OrganizedWisdom with Allen Stern of CenterNetworks.

The video runs about 15 minutes and some of the topics we covered include:

* What is OrganizedWisdom?
* What's a wisdom card and how many cards are there today?
* Are you creating content or just showing search results?
* Plagerism issues - this was running wild in another human powered search engine
* Do you allow the public to contribute?
* How do you compare to NY-based Hakia's health search and iMedix?
* What's the business model -- this is actually very interesting - I discuss a variety of components to the business plan unlike some of the other human powered search engines that are looking at advertising as their only revenue avenue
* What's the team like in NYC?
* How does someone become a guide and what qualifications are required?

The Unity Stoakes Friend Feed

I'm continuing to flood the world with too much information.

Which is why you can now get my Friend Feed here.

Even though my blog is really my home base here at, you can now subscribe to my friend feed and get all of my various feeds from places like Yelp, LinkedIn, several blogs, Flickr, Google Reader, Twitter, Delicious, Amazon Wish List, Netflix Queue, and about 20 other feeds.

I can't even keep up with all of that, so I'm sure you won't care either. But it's a fun repository anyway...
