[Listening to: GIRLS DON’T CRY – The Pillows – Please Mr. Lostman (2:31)]
The Blog is a wonder of the modern. It is the web thing that every one can do besides IM and e-mail. This brings up issues with content. There are many people out there making things that people actually want to read. Then there are people like me who … well … we’re rather less exciting. Nothing on this page is earth shattering or even really all that interesting. It’s just my little three pound processing center trying to make sense of the world around me. Or things that I have found that are interesting.
The sad part about my ‘finding’ things is that I didn’t really find them. They usually come from news sites like Slashdot, and Digg. Occassionally there are some honestly cool stumblings of mine … but mostly I’m too lazy to find any of this stuff on my own so I end up having it fed to me. That said … I think Digg is better than Slashdot. I find the interface easier to understand and navigate, thus I find more that is interesting and it makes it a better site.
Well that said … here’s some stuff out on the net that’s pretty damn cool.
- Google for Mac!: yep a search destination that will give you everyting Mac! How rad is that?
- The Dog Blog: It’s photos of dogs. What’s not to like?
- Personalized Google: Yup. Google for you. Plus it seems better than My Yahoo. Which I also like BTW. I like any thing that makes my surfing life easier. This is why I love tabbed browsing in Firefox, and bookmarks > ‘go to folder you want’ > open in tabs. Life just doesn’t get much better than that. Espeically when you have 49 online comics bookmarked.
