…and I am apparently one of the guinea pigs who got it early. Lucky me?
Facebook has just started rolling out a new homepage design to a small number of users, and will be deploying it on a wide scale in the near future. The design takes the navigational elements that have previously been tucked under the “Applications” menu and returns them to the left sidebar of the page (which is actually where they were a long time ago).
The design also includes some UI enhancements, like the ability to send messages direct from your homepage using a pop-over window, rather than having to visit a separate page. There’s also a new emphasis on search — note how much larger the search box is, and its more centered placement on the page.
It also looks like the News Feed filters and friends lists have been removed (or at least no longer take up the entire left side bar). And the naming of the two different homepage streams — Live Feed and News Feed — have changed: they’re both part of the News Feed now, with the live updates under a “Most Recent” tab and the highlights under “Top News”.
Immediate impression? I had just finished adding a number of my Baton Rouge FB friends into a separate list and now I canNOT find that list anymore. I know it’s there somewhere…

It’s one thing to argue politics, but dealing with an unrepentant racist has it’s limits. Racism is not an ideology, it is not a phenomenon of the right or left in this country. It’s born of ignorance, hate and loathing.
I really thought we’d seen the last of the crap on Her Majesty’s blog since her boyfriend hadn’t poked out his ugly head in a while. Much to my chagrin, the same day I check back after a week of being too busy to hang out there, this insufferable pig is back with his top ten reasons everyone with a sense of decency should merely avoid and shun him as well that blog he’s ruined unless and until his sickness is treated — preferably by amputation.
Anyway, that’s how I see it. I know a couple of folks already have exiled themselves, and this seems to be the place to be.
So sound off fellow exiles. This time it’s not us that got banned, but we banned the SPoDEish blog itself.

My friend, Ron Coleman at Likelihood of Success, tagged me in the following exercise:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
The book is Informal Learning, by Jay Cross, subtitled “Rediscovering the natural pathways that inspire innovation and performance.” Jay Cross is the guy who coined the phrase “e-Learning,” not that you should hold that against him or anything.
Anyway, here’s the relevant passage:
The off-site workshop began with two days of PowerPoint presentations in a poorly lit, cavernous room. Then, when senior executives were on a coffee break, Sibbet and Wheeler taped the vision mural to a side wall, since there was no room up front. Because the room was very dark, Sibbet used an overhead projector to spotlight the mural.
Mission accomplished, Ron.
