…reading back in my Buzz stream and reading back in the Buzz streams of the people listed below and commenting on the Buzz post that you learn from or liking it as that action will bump the Buzz post to the top again allowing new Buzz users to see it and learn from it to.
I’ve been on Google Buzz for close to a month now and find it both invigorating and challenging at the same time. It’s taken me out of the safety zone of both Facebook and Twitter and thrust me into a new world where everyone with whom adopted the technology around the same time that I did, have become my Buzz friends. We communicate and share ideas. We argue, we learn and grow together. We made the rules.
These folks will teach you a lot about Google Buzz
Clicking their name will take you to their Buzz Stream while the second link will take you to their blog if they have one
- Thomas Hawk – photographer extraoridinaire and a man who understands how things work from a user perspective
- Andy Beard – voice of reason for all things internet… points out fallacy and backs it up with fact.
- Louis Gray – Reads likely as much about technology if not more than Robert Scoble and offers educated opinions on what he reads and shares on Buzz
- Mashable – enough said!
- Dirk Talamasca – for the lively and happy conversation within my own Buzz stream and on others. He is the first person I’ve met who really lives in Second Life.
- Kurt Starnes – highly recommend for great conversation and to learn the little nuances of posting to Buzz
- Robert Scoble – Reads likely as much about technology if not more than Louis Gray and offers educated opinions on what he reads and shares on Buzz
- Stephanie Wanamaker – Buzzes the best questions of the day
- Jody Swaney – not afraid to speak up for what he believes in. This Grandfather also won the first giveaway I hosted on Buzz
- Chaotic Neurons – most excellent sense of humour
- M. Farber – His Buzz stream is a treasure trove of visually stimulating Google Reader items. He also authors a blog
- Linda Lawrey – Most helpful in solving problems and for being most neutral in discussions. Sees both sides of the picture!
- Chris Messina – Google employee and open web standards advocate
- Angel Leon – He burst onto Google Buzz creating the Mooooooooar Follower rage. If you weren’t there when it happened… well… that content has since been removed. His stream is colourful with opinions on technology and this father to be shares his every day life to.
- Chris Loft – very first person to ReBuzz my content. He is an artist and musician and finds and shares some of the best and lesser known visually stimulating content on the web.
- Masha Du Toit – one of the first artists I met on Buzz (YAY!) who is actively using it to. Her Buzz stream is most pleasing to the eye.
- And definitely follow the Google Buzz Team to keep up with it all!
I tend not to follow people who import their Twitter streams, BipFM streams, MyBlogLog posts or FriendFeed streams or who are simply echo chambers of content already published on the web who do not offer an additional insight on what they are regurgitating.
I follow people who have something original to say.
From what I gather I am one of the few visual artists actively using Buzz today.
I began an are you an artist actively using Buzz thread… if you are one to please add your name to the list.
I would never have met any of these people if it weren’t for Buzz. Keep that in mind when you begin using Buzz and your time their will be most enjoyable. Buzz is about conversation. It is about learning. It is about sharing and discussing hot topics. It is about breaking away from the norm and not being afraid to do it. It is about open web standards. It is about blogging. It is about business. It is about being yourself.
It is about the future of the web and it’s happening right now in real-time.
