I have started using Quicksilver lately, and now I’m hitting Alt-Apple-Space (my shortcut to start QS) even on the Win PC at work. Very addictive. 43folders has all the coolest tricks that QS can do. And Uptionian thoughts has a good description on how to have your Del.icio.us bookmarks right there in QS. But I [...]
Wallpaper Originally uploaded by Special. Special has made a nice set of wallpapers at Flickr. Also see the wallpapers by Special’s friend, thepipes.
Knowledge mapping as a blogging approach Originally uploaded by Bertrand. I found this picture at Flickr today, and then the application which made it, at Compendiuminstitute. It’s available in both Mac OS X, Windows and Linux flavours. It looks interesting. If you have used it, feel free to comment on this post. Or contact me. [...]
If you haven’t read it already, read Steven Johnson’s open letter to Hillary Clinton, Hillary vs. the Xbox: Game over” in LA Times. His main points: Parents have been dragging kids away from whatever the kids were into since the dawn of civilization. Why should kids playing video games be worse than kids playing Monopoly? [...]
Googlemaps + tags = Tagzania. Great idea! Some features that would be handy: Let users specify their homepages in their profiles, and make it possible to send messages to other users. And let people make suggestions to move tags of other users. Several of the tags placed in my home town totally misses the place [...]
When watching the last leg of Tour de France 2005, one of the commentators told that Lance Armstrong have said something like this: “I’d rather be number one and in the front the whole race, loose the sprint and become number four, than staying in the middle of the field and then win the sprint.” [...]
Tags is THE new thing on the net. It works like this: You put small keywords, or tags, on everything from bookmarks to pictures. One example: For this post, I have added these tags: tags / technorati / flickr / delicious I have set my blog up so that when you click on a tag, [...]
Jan started the We’re not afraid! web page. Very good idea! With lots of good photos. He’s very busy (“we have about 650 emails unprocessed and growing”), so it seems like a good idea to upload them to Flickr. There are already some tagged with werenotafreaid, and there’s a group for it too. Here’s an [...]
Yesterday I read one of the funniest presentations I have read in a long time. In his blog Call me fishmeal, Mac software author Wil Shipley has put up a presentation he made at WWDC. It’s called “How to Succeed Writing Mac Software (Or, How to Make a Zillion Dollars and Not Lose Your Soul)”. [...]
Greencargoncress reports that Toyota will introduce 12 new hybrid models during the next 24 months, “many configured on current production vehicles”. Way cool. Give me a hybrid 7-seat Corolla Verso.
You can do more and more in iTunes. It used to be a player for your mp3-files. Now people have their mp3s in there, they browse for music, buy music, make imixes, subscribe to podcasts, listen to podcasts, update ipods etc. With all this going on: How come there is no History-list in iTunes? I [...]
Billy Reisinger has posted “The ridiculously thorough guide to making your own pizza”. Wonderful. All the details you didn’t know that you didn’t know. Even a section on how to toss the pizza in the air: “You will spin the dough counter-clockwise if you are right handed; clockwise if you are left-handed. Before you toss, [...]
