How-To Internet by Wired

Dying to crash a party via Twitter? Do you want to promote your band using Myspace? Ever heard of a "Google bomb"? The latest issue of Wired has answers to these questions and much, much more. The third-annual collection of how-to wikis is chock full of both humorous and practical Internet applications that will teach you everything from filtering private information on Facebook to becoming the top Geek in your niche.

Once you've figured out how to rule the online domain, I recommend checking out this timeline from Gary Vaynerchuk, host of Wine Library TV, whose 80,000 vlog fans forces him to keep up this grueling schedule:
  • 12 hours, 12 minutes responding to email
  • 4 hours, 24 minutes sleeping
  • 3 hours, 1 minute taking meetings
  • 2 hours, 29 minutes commuting
  • 1 hour, 14 minutes connecting to fans via Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Pownce, YouTube, Viddler, and forums
  • 25 minutes reading blogs
  • 24 minutes eating
  • 22 minutes producing vlog
Just a reminder - remember to come up for air (and sunlight).
