Ajax Wiki Search: So. Much. Awesome.

OMG why didn’t I find this sooner? It’s a Wiki search site in Ajax that uses Google’s API. The search results are displayed column style on the left hand side of the page. The site is self explanatory, so I’ll let the screen grabs do all the talking. Click the thumbnail on the left to see bigger image. Below is a screen grab of an actual search result.

It’s so much easier and simpler to navigate than just WIKIing. Btw, latter is not an actual word, but if Googling is a verb, WIKIing should be, too. And I know “WIKI” shouldn’t be in CAPS but it’s MY blog and I can acronym however I want to, thank you very much! ;)

Anyway, bookmark it. STAT! http://chir.ag/wiki/

Mini-fig Mona Frying Bacon

OMG!! This was saved as a draft, wtf!

Moving on… A week ago, Chris Pirillo launched his community: http://geeks.pirillo.com/. Since I’m a huge Geek, I HAD to join… and his site is quite the community. In less than a week, more than 2,000 users signed up, but what surprised me the most is the range of interests and how it’s not tech / IT exclusive. The community is extremely active with tons of pictures, videos, forum topics, the groups OMG! They range from: Hardware, Software, Google, Food (sushi, cheese, Gummi Bears (!), to ramen), sports, music, funny pictures, toys, and even an 80’s Cartoon TV show group.

Since the list goes on and on, I’m going to stop here, but I find myself on geeks.pirillo.com quite often. :) The YouTube video of me frying bacon, was made by one of the members of the site who makes LEGO Brick Films, Spudster45. See his videos here. Anyway, it’s a pretty cool site. Check it out. :)

Star Wars Influence Map

“In 2005, Wired magazine mapped out how exactly the Star Wars saga (including innovations from ILM, Skywalker Sound and LucasArts) has influenced pop culture, technology, entertainment companies and more over the years.

Read all about it here:

There’s an interactive map at Wired.com.
This is so. much. awesome. That is all. :)

Behold! The Underworld of Gummi Bears Exposed. NSFW

Keyword searching “Gummi Bears” on Flickr, I uncovered the darker side of Gummi Bear land. Prepare yourselves please; this may perhaps be traumatizing.

In no particular order, I present to you…

But who’s the daddy? via your_teacher Your… teacher? :O!

‘No Key’ QWERTY Keyboard: Peripheral Hotness – sigh -

Glass surface inputting is the new hotness for almost every gadget maker today. From from the iPhone to Microsoft’s Surface technology, flat is where it’s at. Introducing the flattest full size QWERTY keyboard to date, “No-key Keyboard” by Kong Fanwen. Consisting of just a glass surface, camera and lighting, this alternative keyboard concept will use the latest motion capture technology to watch your fingers nervously select just the perfect smiley for your online bantering.

- sigh -
Too bad it’s still a concept.
– double sigh -

I’m Already on FriendFeed, What’s the Point of SweetCron?

Last night, SweetCron was released and my friend Sean was one of the first who had it up and running. Go Sean! :)

In a nutshell, SweetCron is free Open Source lifestreaming software. It automatically imports images, videos, and texts, from various websites you’re signed up for, and consolidates them in one place.

So why would you even bother with another one of those sites?
Especially, if you’re on FriendFeed.

Well, I spend 95% of my days at FriendFeed –seriously. I reaaaally don’t need another aggregator. But I do. I’m planning to run SweetCron for a personal website. It would make it easy for my non FriendFeeder friends to keep up with my life, since (as much as I am a devotee), FriendFeed can be overwhelming. There’s tons of conversational threads, random dumpage of information, everything I love about it, my non-internet savvy friends don’t. (I tried getting a few to sign up)

I’m extremely excited about SweetCron since:

  1. SweetCron is very visual. The RSS feeds pull in media (images, video, etc). To see a live demo, visit the creator Yongfook’s site. His website is powered by SweetCron :)
  2. It’s for self-hosted sites, meaning I have control of a lot of things. (read: I can choose my own domain name +1!)
  3. And it’s easy on the eyes. Very simple and self explanatory — both front / back ends, and most importantly, for the users. People can jump on the site and start clicking around :)

Take a look at some of his screen shot videos:

Pretty neat, huh? Just like Dave, I think it’s going to be “pretty Fooking Huge“, too LOL.

Um, now all I need is a domain name. Does anyone have ideas / suggestions?
