Links for Friday 27th July, 2007

  • Cuban: The Internet Is Dead – Mark (‘only a moron would buy YouTube’) Cuban says “The Internet’s for old people”. Well, I guess that’s that then. See you on a cable network sometime. Sigh
  • What would Baden-Powell do? – Full of choice quotes from Baden-Powell. Perhaps the best, on the character of bees: “They are a quite a model community for they respect their Queen and kill their unemployed.”
  • IBM Virtual World Guidelines – The IBM virtual worlds guidelines in full. I wrote about these in detail on Eightbar.
  • The Return Of Links – “I built myself a little script in JavaScript that uses the JSON feed to generate a page where I can select which links I want to publish and then have them populate a simple unordered list which I can copy and paste into a new post”. Sounds ideal. To try.
  • Todoist – Brilliant todo/project/calendar managing tool. Still meaning to blog about this properly some time.
  • Gmail-template Generator – Yay. This could save some typing. Merlin Mann’s talk wishlisted templates for GMail in his Inbox Zero talk. This is close.
  • Wired: How Madison Avenue Is Wasting Millions on a Deserted Second Life – Page three says “The Internet will eventually be full of such 3-D environments; Second Life might even be one of them. But in the meantime, it’s just slurping up corporate dollars and delivering little in return.”

  1. I’m really impressed with those guidelines from IBM, they mention a whole lot of good stuff about avatar identity, and respecting other peoples avatar identity.
