The A-Team movie. With Liam Neeson. So bad it’s gonna rock.
Call for Submission of Good Practices on Small Ruminant (Goat and Sheep) Rearing sounds like a bit of a laugh at first but then you realise it is a real call and actually a rather important matter. (via @sclopit)
Odd, I tend to reboot my iPhone every now and then. Games especially cause memory issues.
The Moon In My Room light is awesome.
Initial impressions of the Windows Phone 7 Series user interface. Abstract. Slick. Unique. Confusing. Where are the 3rd party apps going to go? It shouldn’t need labels saying “Tap to search.” That is bad-UI smell. It is a bold UI move from Microsoft. I hope it works, the iPhone needs competitors to improve.
Aardvark is a grower. I started using it a few months ago but with a fair amount of skepticism. Questions answered via social networking techniques? Sounds lovely but I doubted it would deliver. And to be honest I haven’t used it much for questions. I still answer most of my questions using Google. Instead I’ve been answering questions, 40 to date. I feel like I have helped people which is a compelling way to engage with users. I interact with Aardvark primarily through IM, a better IM bot I have not used before. It respects my IM status and is quick and easy to use, far quicker than a website or iPhone app. Google have bought Aardvark. I am excited if a bit worried, Google has a middling record when it comes to user facing services (e.g. Dodgeball and Jaiku.) Potentially Google can provide Aardvark with a far greater understanding of the web and its social connections. I hope this merger goes well as Aardvark is a clever and well put together system.
A Google love story. Makes me think we are heading for a time where remembering facts and figures will largely be an irrelevant skill as we jack into the Googlesphere. Thought processes, creativity, these will thrive in an always-on world.
