Hello everyone. My name is Ideen Barimani or IBarimani for short on the blog. How’s it going?

I wrote a blog, that you can see on the right side of your screen, called All 81. It has been a personal goal of mine to try to go to every Baltimore Orioles home game this season. And I am thankful I was able to do it. And I am grateful to all of my friends who helped me along the way. And I do need to give kudos to Facebook and Foursquare as well.

We have rapidly expanded as a society and technology is in such a hurry. Does there need to be this sense of urgency? Well fortunately for me, it benefited me this season.

The Facebook check-in feature allows people to announce where they are and with whom they are with. Now this information is completely voluntary. It’s addicting and contagious. In future posts I’ll discuss why this is good and bad. Instead of calling, texting, or messaging friends to let them know where we are to tell them to come out, it simplifies the process. The good part is, people know to come to you and where to find you. The bad part Continue reading

Damn!!! There’s been so many updates recently between Google+ and Facebook that I don’t even know where to start. Nobody wants to get caught like Victor Ortiz and get knocked the f*&^ out! Protect yourself at all times right? Honestly, the best thing to happen to Facebook recently has been Google+. It actually made Facebook take their head out of their you know what and step their game up.

My biggest qualm with FB has always been their privacy controls being hidden like I am supposed to go Easter egg hunting?!?! However, every time FB makes major changes people act like they lost a kidney. Only new feature I am not too fond of is the stalker tool on the top right of your screen. It’s good and it’s bad! I’ll be looking more in-depth at the changes on FB later this week hopefully. I am waiting till their f8 conference on Thursday where they will be announcing some big new features to their platform. Other than that, they are doing things they should’ve been doing a long time ago because Google+ is the new kid in town and he’s not shy about strutting his stuff!

Google+, on the other hand, is keeping the pressure on facebook and got out of trial mode to land in beta world. And opening their service to the world without needing an invitation. They’ve also improved other services or features. There’s one specifically that I didn’t understand which was not being able to share images in their mobile Huddle app. Well, now they’ve changed the name to Messenger and have added that option. Also, in Google+ Hangouts, you can now broadcast which is a workaround for the 10 person audience limit to the feature. I am sure there are other features I am missing but sue me!

All in all, this one is not ending in the 4th round guys like Mayweather vs Ortiz!! It’s going the distance! Stay tuned!!
