Jekyll and Hyde. On one side you have a nice person that works hard and strives for perfection. The other hand, you have a beast that will just tear apart what ever it comes in contact with. If you were to know Jekyll, would you accept the Hyde in him? I think we do that with Twitter. On one hand we have a great interface that will keep us up to date with all our friends activities – wherever they may be. On the other hand, you have a unstable and sometimes untrustworthy portal that you cuss at when it’s down. And the funny thing is it doesn’t have to be that way.

This last week I saw an interesting trend. Various websites I visited all of a sudden looked different. They ditched their old design and brought a new look to their WebPages. Even here at Geekazine, we are a few days away from introducing a new look. So why did everybody choose this time to change? I remember back when the web was in its infancy, I read an interesting article where they asked the question – When is the best time to redesign your site? They suggested that if you redesign it too much too quickly, people will start to get turned off and decide to travel elsewhere on the information superhighway. However, sometimes a redesign is what’s needed to bring more traffic. Moving items in a “More ergonomical” fashion might give a site a better ease of use, therefore people will choose your site over the competitors....
This week we look at Twitter and what it might look like if more famous tech icons were using the site.
*Note – Changed the link to ustream. The YouTube version was nothing but static. Sorry about that The other day I was talking with EpicOnline on my live stream at http://live.geekazine.com and we started talking about Twitter and what would happen if the company folded tomorrow. Not that it would happen, but we’ve already seen some sites dissapear. Stage 6, Think Secret, Apple Blog. Even Yahoo has closed services and shuttled over to another. The Blogger I was trying to remember was Marc Orchant who passed away in December 2007 Here is the video from this:

Webware put out it’s top 100 and we’re going to go through them and see what was good, what was bad, and what was… well, you know.. Webware is a site dedicated to watching what is popping up out on the internet. Any application that a web developer puts out will be checked out and reported on by this organization. It’s a good thing, too. There are so many out there, it’s tough to keep up. On April 21st, Webware put out the list of the top 100 apps. There were ten categories, each with ten winners. There were 5000 nominees, and 300 apps were chosen as finalists. Over 1.9 million votes were cast to dwindle this list down to...
