Because it’s Friday and my brain is fried. It won’t be as over the top as one of Owen’s magnum opii, but still, it should be a spot of fun.
- Like you haven’t seen it already, but hey: Dave Shea‘s A Roadmap to Standards. It’s definitely worth reading, and I’m not just saying that because somewhere near the end he recommends more than half my book catalog.
- Seeing itself might get a massive upgrade in the near future thanks to laser light and mirrors. Hmmm… how much fun would it be to have a complete CSS reference overlaying the world? Yeah—not very.
- It occurs to me that Simon St. Laurent might be interested in the possibilites that a full-color personal display might bring filtering the world, considering the thoughts he had with regard to this DVD player.
- You could, of course, view DVD alterations as a way of correcting or filtering a piece of work to conform to your worldview. Sometimes, as the British Medical Journal points out, corrections can be a good thing.
- And I wonder what Jack Valenti thinks of a DVD player that alters copyrighted material?
- Ro collected 300 images from around the Web and they’re… well… familiar. It’s almost an art piece. I like the use of negative
letter-spacingfor the title.
- A note for OS X users: Panic, creators of the inestimable Transmit, have released Stattoo. Looks veeeery interesting, although it’s so rare for me to have any appreciable portion of my desktop visible that I’m not sure how much use I’d get out of it.
- Now here’s a tool we all can use: a list of the changeover points from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time all over the world. And you can even find the change points for the last five years. Woohoo!
- Elena, the radioactive Russian rider, had to remove her photojournal because a few million too many people went to check it out. Thankfully, there are a number of mirrors available.
- Of course, if you wanted to get close to the high-Geiger action yourself, you could join a Chernobyl tour. I didn’t see any mention of oversized earthworms or Matthew Broderick, though.
- Tom proposes a geographical metaphor to measure your memetic cluefulness. I put myself somewhere near Bingen, mostly because I like the sound of the word “Bingen.”
- You may as well join the memtic herd, think of badgers, and then visit Kenya. How long will you be able to stay?
