Earn Your Stripe

All that you have to do is create yourself an account, provide a little content, and you’ve got your own Infostripe.

In its beta period, Infostripe lets you very easily create your own stripe of information to show off your digital footprint.  Registration is quick and easy and you’re ready to create your own personalized stripe.  If you’re active in the Social Realm, it may well take a while to work your way through the social networking services to identify where you have a significant presence.  If you’ve created some media, then you’ll want to add that as well.

It’s one of those times where I’m glad that I’ve chosen a consistent name thoughout everything that I do online!

The final step is to choose the colours that you want – I chose Android colours and my stripe is ready to go.

While this is a screen grab of what was generated, each of the social icons above are hot and lead to the actual source.  You can check it out live at:  http://infostripe.com/dougpete.

While you’re there, why not create your own?  At this point, you’re just creating your own page.  The ability to embed in a webpage, wiki, or blog would be a nice next step.  The authors have been very active on the project; you can follow their changelog at the site and certainly can follow them on Twitter and/or Facebook to see what’s next in the development.

For me, it’s one of the quickest way to navigate through a digital footprint that I’ve seen.

  1. Hi there,

    Thanks for the great review!

    Two things, you can in fact embed an infostripe with an iframe. You can see an example here: http://infostripe.com/embed.html

    Second, what browser are you using? The Control Panel tabs look a little different then we’d expect in your screenshot.

    We are working hard each day to improve the service and push out new features and fixes.


  2. Thank you for dropping by the blog and obviously protecting your brand! You’ve got a great concept going here.

    The iframe does indeed work – I have it running on my Wiki here – http://dougpete.pbworks.com/w/page/39750782/Infostripe – but WordPress.com filters out iframe code. As for the Control Panel, that would have been captured from Google Chrome on the Macintosh.

    I did take a look at your changelog and it’s really apparent that you’ve been very busy with improving your product. I wish you all the best with it. I’m really impressed with the number of sources that you are supporting as people create their infostripe.


  3. Thanks for answering the question about the tabs.. that’s interesting as they don’t look like that to us (or intended to) on our Mac Chrome test systems. I will investigate further and hopefully have a fix asap. Not a big deal but I am keen on keeping ascetics in line.

    The iframe method is a bit of a placeholder as we are looking to release a html5/JS widget soon.
