There are a couple of things I wish for christmas and I hope that in spite of the maybe slightly angry letter you may have received after last christmas when I didn’t get my Aston Martin Vanquish that I wished for you would do something about these.
Number 1. Do something about the news feeds on Facebook. Let people decide which feeds to receive and which not. I’m fed up reading about how A’s vampire attacks B’s vampire and how C has added the fluff-friends application and how D has received yet another Superwall post. Enough! I don’t want to know about this. Currently the best solution for this is to not login on Facebook. A simple way to avoid information overload.
Number 2. Bring back the advanced search terms in Live. Earlier Live was the search engine for webometricians. You could get reciprocal hyperlinks, co-inlinks and -outlinks and all kinds of exciting data (well, exciting to a handfull of webometricians around the world). But now, not so much.
Number 3. This should be a simple one: show me one person that has found a new career thanks to LinkedIn.
Number 4. Could you also do something about the crashes on Second Life? As Philip Linden also talked about in his blog entry, stability is very important for educators using Second Life. I had a workshop about Second Life and partly in Second Life precisely the same time there were some serious login issues. It’s a bit embarassing to try to show how great Second Life is when half of the class couldn’t enter it.
Number 5. And maybe if you have time, maybe you could reconsider the Aston Martin I mentioned last year…
