Slife

Today, Edison Thomaz, creator of OnLife, (recently renamed Slife) visited Exbiblio, and showed us what he has been up to over the last year. He has created a very appealing social networking site called Slifeshare based on his client application for Mac OS X (soon to be released for Windows as well).

It provides a great new way to interact globally with other people who share similar interests and activities. I think it will be particularly appealing to the MySpace generation, since its true value comes to play if you are willing to make public what you do on your computer throughout the day—what web sites you visit, what music you listen to, what you buy, what applications you run.

I checked out your blog. Microformats sounds interesting.

I'm not sure what you are asking. Are you using the Slife Macintosh client application? I use Apple's Safari for the slifeshare site, and it works fine. I would think any version of Firefox should work fine. There should definitely not be a dependency on Firefox 2.

There is currently a crashing bug in the Slife application, which you can circumvent by disabling the option in the Slifeshare tab in the preferences in the client application called "Share the currently selected graphical representation...".

You may also be able to circumvent the bug by slighly shifting the zoom factor of the graphical display.

Edison is very helpful if you'll email him.
