Really interesting take on collaborative sharing and the culture of trust.
Fu helps you navigate the roughly “400 jobs posted on Twitter every minute” via a web app that’ll scour them, sort them by relevance, and even let you “apply with one click”, hopefully for a high-paying position that involves about that same level of brain power and activity.
To get gainful, just punch in your Tweet-deets, and it’ll scan your profile for networks, connections, links, etc., then spit out a bunch of keywords (“Technology”, “Medicine”, “Freelance”…) that you can add/subtract to best define what you’re looking for, though if you’re using this tool, “micro-blogging” can probably be assumed.
Once you’re happy, it’ll rank each listing by means of a “FuScore” based on how well it matches your interests, and how connected you are to the poster, so hopefully you won’t have to rely on 140 character references.
gees what took them so long..honestly?
So maybe you guys know this already or maybe you guys don’t but it looks like tumblr is beginning to roll out some money making schemes to bring in some revenue. Not to worry though, they intend on keeping it free. Just adding more features that will come at a premium. Also another interesting tidbit: founder David Karp is a highschool dropout and is only 22. Yes, let’s see how woefully inadequate we can make ourselves feel.
