PicoCool v2 Launches

PicoCool v2 Launches

Feb 16, 2009

I’m so pleased to announce that version 2 of PicoCool has launched! I originally started PicoCool in September 2007 as a side blog where I could indulge in my passion for finding unique, and often obscure bytes of content from social networks and peer media. After doing that for a little over a year, I […]

Female Bloggers

Aug 2, 2008

I wanted to take a moment and thank the following bloggers and sites for including me in their recent lists of top/favorite female bloggers. I don’t tend to pay the most attention to lists and rankings. There’s always deserving people that don’t get included and the general nature of lists is subjective. That said, I […]

On the Go

Aug 2, 2008

I’ve been tweaking the design of my site behind the scenes for the last few weeks and made the changes live tonight. Of course, there will be continuous tweaks, but I feel purged! Overall, I’ve tried to reduce clutter and simplify the structure and presentation – a proper cleansing. It’s an evolution but also a […]

After spending the last two years as eHub, obsessively profiling and trying out almost every web application that’s come out, I’ve decided to try something different from a new perspective. I just launched PicoCool, a site that’s dedicated to bringing you tiny and obscure content from the world of peer media, social networks and subcultures. […]

eHub Announces New Editors

Jul 9, 2007

As most of you know, I’ve been flying solo on eHub since it launched as the first Web 2.0 list back in Oct 2005. It’s been a thrill and both personally and professionally gratifying to maintain a resource that’s used widely. eHub has over 400,000 page views a month and reaches 14,000 daily RSS subscribers […]

My Data Stream

Feb 19, 2007

After a year and a half of using social applications heavily, I recently had to revisit the plan to aggregate all my activity into one data stream. As the calendar rolled to 2007, I kept wishing I could look at all my social activity from 2006 in context: time, date, type of activity, location, memory, […]

Happy One Year, Four Months

Jan 4, 2007

September 4th was the one year anniversary of this blog, but I’ve been too busy (!) to stop and ponder the significance of it until tonight. While I’ve had many blogs before, EmilyChang.com is the first professional blog that I’ve started that’s purely focused on web, design and technology, and it’s been an extremely gratifying […]

A Statistical Month in Review

Oct 12, 2005

Today is the one month birthday of eHub. I started blogging here at emilychang.com on September 3. A week later, I made eHub as a resource to keep up with the rapid-fire development of new web apps, services, and social trends that I had already been following with a keen eye. I’ll post thoughts about […]

EmilyChang.com Launches

Sep 4, 2005

I’ve been keeping my life online at artcodes.com for a long time now, but I’ve decided to return artcodes to its roots as a place for my art experiments and personal life. Today I launched emilychang.com as my blog focused on strategic design and web. That’s the plan anyway. Like life, a website tends to […]
