Messaging Launched

January 30th, 2007 No comments

We’ve launched messaging on the site thanks to Al. Now, if there is something we want to say to a Lifelister, we can (except when a Lifelister has opted out of messaging). It’s early days, but it seems to work. Any suggestions welcome.

6 for a new world

January 18th, 2007 No comments

This is driving me crazy. I can’t make my mind up at all and it’s almost getting to the point where it’s keeping me awake at night. Like ‘flyssann’ my first thought for a cook type person was Nigella Lawson, not only for the food but because she is a great appreciator of beauty and would make things look good. But then maybe she is too beautiful herself?? Maybe she would get on my nerves wafting around in her satin dressing gown. What if i get jealous? Now I feel terrible for thinking such things because really I should be thinking of what’s best for the new world and not my own insecurities. Coming up with a list of just 6 people is possibly just too much responsibility for me.

Me2!s launched

January 14th, 2007 No comments

We’ve launched Me2!’s on the site. I’m really pleased with it, Al has done a great job of programming the whole thing. Now, when we’re reading someone’s lists, if we want to say “yes, I agree..” then we can by adding a Me2!

6 for a new world

January 12th, 2007 No comments

I’ve just created a new list with the title “6 for a new world” that I think is a fascinating concept, though I’m not claiming any credit for the idea (I heard about it on one of Ricky Gervais’ podcasts). The idea is this: we have devastated our planet and need to go to a new one. A suitable planet has been found, identical to ours except it’s not populated, polluted or otherwise ruined. A spaceship has been built to travel to the new world but it can only take six people in addition to the “populator-bots” that will take care of reproducing the human race. Your mission: to decide who to put on the spaceship! My six will probably be chosen in a very methodical, quasi-scientific manner (it’s a work in progress!) but who would you choose? Bizarrely, they can be persons either living or dead (ain’t technology wonderful!) and you might want to indicate your reasons. It could be a lot of fun. I wonder how many of you will have a go? PS. me2! is almost ready!

Me2!

January 5th, 2007 No comments

We’ve been online for a couple of days now and we have a few new users. It’s great to read other people’s Lifelists and to find out that although we may think that we have nothing in common with a person, we almost certainly do. There always seems to be something that I agree with and I want to be able to tell people that. The more I look at lists, the more overwhelming is the urge to make contact of some kind with people. Al is working on it now. We’ll start with the Me2! idea and then add an email function. Users will be able to opt in to receive emails. Hope fully in a week or two we’ll be adding these.
