Flickr just announced Yahoo’s new My Web 2.0. This is Yahoo’s first shot at Social Search. The relevancy of the results is somehow determined by a combination of the standard relevancy algorithms and the preferences of your friends. It should be interesting to see how this develops over the coming weeks.
There’s a blog, too.
Update: Nike has apologized. I’m impressed.
I have way too many tabs open in Firefox, so I’m cleaning things up with this post. If you’re not interested, feel free to move along.
This is impressive! If that link didn’t work for you, open a command prompt or terminal window and type in:
telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl. And supposedly there are extra features if you visit via IPv6, although I have not confirmed this myself (yet). [via Brad]
“As you’ve probably figured out by now, I think that paper is complete garbage. Unfortunately it’s actually one of the better academic papers on BitTorrent, because it makes some attempt, however feeble, to do an apples to apples comparison. I’d comment on academic papers more, but generally they’re so bad that evaluating them does little more than go over epistemological problems with their methodology, and is honestly a waste of time.”
Adding to the already excellent collection of Power Tools for Movable Type, the Tags Power Tool was released today. Think Flickr/del.icio.us meets blogs. I expect to see some interesting development coming out of this.
