Google Buzz 2010 – Hip Cats Buzz 2000

Google has just announced Google Buzz which lets you post and share status lines from your g-mail.  Buzz is a good word – Dan Zen sure did not invent buzz – it being around at least from the early 70s and more likely a 60s maybe even 50s term.  But in celebrating the hip word for what’s happening, Dan Zen did use Buzz in Hipcats the social media site from 2000 pictured above.

The Buzz section let you post on the following topics which is a little different than a plain status post:

  • Media Reviews (Books, Video, Music)
  • Cool Websites
  • A Happening
  • A Protest
  • A Zen Koan
  • A Radical Idea
  • A First Time
  • A Translation (themes to translate words in Hip Cats)

Never really did catch on – but the rest of the site had its moments 😉
