Capitalization is a dying, so what the hell. I am not sure what that indicates. But I went with it. They don't capitalize, so I won't.
I have a lot of online profiles. Every now and then I run into a new one. Not new really, just forgotten. Unless a site is brand new, chances are, I might have a profile there. So, first I try to log in. And if it works, who knows the person I will find in my profile. He might live in Kansas City, Phoenix, or Lawrence, Kansas. He may be single or married. He may work in construction or for an internet company. Strange thing is, he is all me.
For the most part, it's not an issue. If I haven't been to the site in years, who cares. But if my inbox is full of messages like this:
"Hi, I saw your profile and think we may have a lot in common. Please contact me at email@example.com if you want to chat. This profile is a friend of mines and I am just using it while I am visiting her."
I may want to drop Lucy a line just to tell her that I am not longer single and even though she would like to change her last name to something other than 3 numerals, she has to look elsewhere. My wife would appreciate that.
Atomkeep fixes that. Put your details in one place and update everything else.
At first I thought they were another lifestream service. After all, that's the new thing. Everyone build one and we will see who is left standing. I am building one that connects to a computer in my house. You will know when I wake up, open the fridge and the channel I am watching on cable. It will be like having a webcam attached to my forehead, only no pictures. That way I can finally accomplish logging every second in some sort of form online.
I hate profiles. "Crap. Got to fill out one of these damn things again. Stop coming up with new sites already. Put the damn ingenuity on hold for a while. I am three sites behind. Screw it. I will be the gray faced guy without any eyes or hair for a while. At least the no hair part is right. And aliens are in, aren't they."
And when it comes to long forms to fill out, atomkeep just about has the IRS beat. That was the first thing I noticed and why I held off coming back for a day. Then I found out why. Yes, you have to wear out your keyboard filling out one form. But after you fill out all of the following:
- Name & Location
- Professional Summary
- Career Info
- User Image
you no longer have to fill them out at these sites:
- Google Groups
because it will fill them out for you.
If you notice, there are a lot of job sites on there. That's because after this second internet bubble explodes all over Cali, a lot of people who would use a site like this are going to need them.
Okay, enough already. It's a cool site, saves time and once that voice grabbed ahold of me, I let it run rip shod over my normal quiet personality. Check it out.
