Random things I’ve seen in my recent travels:
:: Technorati is a new service to allow you to watch websites. Wondering what it’s trying to tell you? Check out the Results Help page. I found a few sites that link to me that I didn’t know about before, but otherwise I’m not sold yet on how useful this will be. [via Jason]
:: If TiVo Thinks You’re Gay, Here’s How to Set it Straight – I saw the “King of Queens” episode where the TiVo thought he was gay – it was hysterical! I turned the “record stuff for me on your own” feature off a long time ago though. I record enough stuff as it is. The article also goes in to why Amazon recommends the strange things it offers up to us too.
:: Unspooled is a great article about how the cassette tape is fading away in to history. Remember making mix tapes for someone that you liked? I loved the fact that my dual cassette player even had a feature where it would put the little break inbetween each song. Ah, those were the days… [via Laura Holder; read her post from Nov. 18, 2002 about cleaning out her tapes too.]
:: Tellling All Online: It’s a Man’s World (Isn’t It?) – the poor author of this article thought that all there was to the blog world were men. While what I personally consider to be the “A List” of bloggers is mainly male (and it’s a really short list, but we’ll get in to that some other time), I read a mix of male and female blogs. Some are people just like me, others are people nothing like me. It’s an interesting mix when I stop to think about it – but I would never say that the blog world is dominated by men. At least not in my little corner of it. What do you think?
