Elsewhere Online: Listgeeks Is a Social List-Making Tool

I am an inveterate list maker, so a service that lets you create lists with others on the Internet is right up my alley. You can see a gardening list I started on the service, in order to check it out at Favorite Gardening Plants. Add your favorites.
Listgeeks Is a Social List-Making Tool for the Organizationally-Obsessed [Video]:

If you love making lists, or you're just in the market for some good ideas or new things to do, Listgeeks is a neat way to create and share the things in your life through the simplicity of lists.

Like with any social site, some of the entries you find won't be practical or helpful to anyone, but Listgeeks is full of many interesting ideas and things to do. If you're not creating a list of your own, you can browse the many lists contributed by other users. Through browsing you can find new movies, books, blogs, and other media to try. You'll also find great traveling suggestions, apps you might want on your smartphone, and pretty much everything else. When you find items you like on a given list, you can add them to your own simply by clicking on the list and dragging them over to your side of the page. While Listgeek seems like a pretty strange and niche kind of "social network," it's actually pretty compelling once you spend some time with it. It's a good way to discover new things and share your own interests—unless, of course, you hate making lists.

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...

Elsewhere Online: AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive

This story from TechDirt lays out yet another reason I recommend that folks DON'T use the email provided to them by their ISP. My typical recommendation right now is to get a Gmail account instead. It also points out why I want to manage all my SPAM on my end, without pre-filtering from an ISP. I will gladly manage my spam if it helps to insure that I see as many of my "real" messages as possible. Again, Gmail's tools work pretty good in this regard. Having an alternative email account also insures you will keep the same email, even if you decide to leave your current ISP. Witness all the folks holding onto AOL accounts just to keep their AOL email address. Thank goodness at least that is free now. AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive You can certainly understand why ISPs offer spam filters. It's a service for users who don't want to be totally bombarded with spam. But what I've never understood is that these ISPs rarely give the us
