So many things to write about, so little time:
- All kinds of Web 2.0 goodness from TechCrunch:
- Top 10 Sources, which is a blog index that is edited by humans. Pretty good stuff on here, but it’s causing a controversy by fully copying blog posts.
- BillMonk — keeps track of IOUs between friends with all kinds of fun notification features like e-mail and SMS. Lots of built-in intelligence that allows you to fully track what people owe you (an, of course, what you owe others).
- bluepulse — the “meebo of cell phones”. Enough said.
- FeedXS, which goes straight to the core of RSS as a simple syndication method. It’s easier to see than to describe, so take a look.
- nuvvo allows educators to create courses with Ajax. In addition, there is a payment engine that allows educators to charge students for courses. Further modules allow educators to create tests, post grades, etc. — all the things you would expect from an online education engine. Interesting stuff.
- Tom Peters Wire Service reports on Adam Kalkin’s push-button house that essentially involves a shipping container with motorized walls that fold down to reveal an amazing interior. I think that this even cooler than some of the fold-out semi trailers that I’ve seen and it’s much more ADA-accessible.
- HispanicTrending reports that Busch series car racing in Mexico City is becoming more and more popular in Mexico and is creating opportunities for more and more Mexican drivers.
- the[non]billable hour provides a list of all kinds of things that companies and people have given away for free and how that has resulted in increased sales.
- TabletPCTalkNews provides instructions on how to boot your computer without a CD drive. This is great for users of tablets and other computers that do not come with CD drives built-in.
- Bleezer is a free blog authoring application that works equally well on Mac, Windows, and Linux. I haven’t switched over yet, but I will within the next month.
- Nokia is testing running a web server on a phone. I’m not sure why this is practical, but I guess it’s cool to conceive of.
- Yahoo Local Maps are providing traffic reports. I’m guessing this will shortly be available on Google Maps.
- I loved the bathroom pictures in the men’s room at a hotel when I first saw them, but Steve’s Nude Memphis blog has re-posted the picture to make it easy to find.
- On Thinking By Peter Davidson there is a post that details the GoGoKidz TravelMate that is no much more than a luggage carrier specifically made for child seats. For those that have had to travel with a car seat in the airport, this is a great thing.
