Umibozu - 0 views

  •  
    How it works In today's modern Internet, search engines have full control over the web, they can make sites be the center of attention or make them disappear altogether in a flash. A web site that is not referenced by Google, Yahoo or MSN is virtually nonexistent to the average user; it is also largely accepted that search engines cover only 20% of the World Wide Web today. In other words, search engine algorithms dictate which web sites are 'visible' and which web sites don't exist. There is nothing democratic about it, the search engines decide. Either you fit in the system, or you're out of the game. No matter how good your web site is, no matter how good users think your web site is, machines decide if it is a good match for you or not. It could be full of junk for all you know, as long as it follows the rules of page ranking and other criterias set by the algorithms. Like it or not, there is a dictatorship of information, no matter how good the intentions of these companies are, they have control over what you see. Who can better judge if a web site is a good match for your key words, if it's not you ? Aren't you the one who should judge if a web site is right for you? User driven Umibozu attempts to address this problem by providing users the means to vote for web sites that they find interesting or useful, bringing more democracy to the web 2.0. In order to start off the process though, Umibozu brings together all the results of the major search engines in one place, then lets the user refine the results. After all, machines also have the right to vote. Meta search engine Say you're looking for the best pizza place in town, you should not take for granted whatever your good friend tells you, it's always best to have several recommendations, no matter how much you trust this friend. Also, your taste and preferences are an important factor in your choice for a good pizza, and should be taken into account when looking for a good place to eat. This is why Um

Test your IPv6. - 8 views

  •  
    How this test works: Your browser will be instructed to reach a series of URLs. The combination of successes and failures tells a story about how ready you are for when publishers start offering their web sites on IPv6. Q: What is World IPv6 Day? This is a trial period where a number of major web sites will provide their content on both IPv4 and IPv6. This is being led by the Internet Society (ISOC). more information is posted on their World IPv6 Day page. World IPv6 day, scheduled for 8 June 2011, is a global-scale test flight of IPv6 sponsored by the Internet Society. On World IPv6 Day, major web companies and other industry players will come together to enable IPv6 on their main websites for 24 hours. The goal is to motivate organizations across the industry -- Internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies -- to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition as IPv4 address space runs out. Click here to see the start time in your local area. Why is World IPv6 Day necessary? The address space used by the current version of the Internet protocol, IPv4, is expected to run out in 2011. Without action, we risk increased costs and limited functionality online for Internet users everywhere. The only long-term solution to this problem is adoption of IPv6, which provides over 4 billion times more space. IPv6 is used extensively in many large networks, but it has never been enabled at a global scale. World IPv6 Day will help industry players work together to support the new protocol on an accelerated timeline. With major web companies committing to enable IPv6 on their main websites, there are strong incentives for other industry players to ensure their systems are prepared for the transition.

LocaPoint Geocoding System Home - 3 views

  •  
    LocaPoint is the state-of-the-art location pointer code that can express any location of the world, only with 12 letters. SW8.HQ9.CS6.PQ8 Statue of Liberty SD9.XC4.FE1.CV4 Tokyo Tower UL4.MZ7.FP3.TU4 London Eye You can say prompt answer, "10:35" or "16:45" to the question, "What time is it". But, can you say a prompt answer to the question, "Where is it" ? You may use Address, Landmark, Direction, or Map. But there is no prompt way to answer - before LocaPoint came. Application LocaPoint can be used in anything that need to show a location. * Directory/Travel Guide/Restaurant Guide * Blog/Travel Diary * Real Estate information * Pleasure * Appointment * Advertising/Signs * and More.... Advantages of using LocaPoint LocaPoint has a unique format - "Letter, Letter, Number" , that leads a three advantages. First, you can easily recognize that this is a information regarding a location by this format, as you do for "***@***.com" as email address, or "http://****" as URLs. Second, the pattern of "Letter, Letter, Number" helps you to cognize, read, tell, listen, input, or remember. If a code has no pattern, or is totally random, you may have a difficult time to use it. Third, LocaPoint unique format is also "Detectable" for a computer. Computer can detect LocaPoint as a "location information" and can automatically start a GIS application, such as Map or Navigator. Here is a simple program to do it. By clicking this, every LocaPoint that is written in plain text will be "Linkify" to GoogleMaps with specified location.

ProgrammableWeb: Web 2.0 Mashup Matrix - 0 views

  •  
    An experimental matrix of Web 2.0 mashups.
    Usage: Hover the cursor over any cell in the matrix. A small box gives details on mashups for that API combination. Top links in hover box bring you to that API's reference page. Links in body of hover box take you directly to the mashup. Not all combinations have mashups & only those with the 'º' indicator currently have entries. Cells at the intersection of same API (ex: Amazon+Amazon) list any other examples for that API.

    Note that there are two views into the matrix: the default view shows only those APIs for which mashups have been added to the database. The second view shows all APIs regardless of whether there's currently a mashup registered. It's big. Definitions: What is a mashup anyway? As always, it's good to check Wikipedia's definition, but essentially a "mashup" is a web-based application built through (creative) combination of data from multiple sources. Often, but by no means always, this data is retrieved by using a vendor's API such as those listed here. (An API? Also at Wikipedia.) Some recent press may also help explain: BusinessWeek's "Mix, Match and Mutate", The Economist's "Mashing the Web". Background: This is an experiment. It is intended to be both a reference point and also a visualization. What you see here today will change both in content and form shortly. I am quite interested in seeing the 'space' in which mashups exist. Clearly, some APIs such as Google Maps, appear to be more widely used than others. UI Issues: Cross-browser support is good but not complete. Sometimes it can b

GoaQoo.CoM  -  Ask your friends anonymous questions! - 2 views

  •  
     We all have questions that are very hard to be asked directly and in many cases we are afraid that by asking a question we can get ourselves in a strange, uncomfortable or embarrassing situation and therefore we avoid asking them.In other cases we would like to surprise someone and if we could ask for a clue in an anonymous way, it would help us in preparing the perfect surprise. GoaQoo is a free and simple application that allows users to ask anonymous questions from their friends. The identity of the person asking the question is fully protected, only the short description or nickname that is provided at the "Sender" item is disclosed to the Recipient. The e-mail of the sender is kept fully confidential and it is used only for notification purposes. All the questions are confidential, only the sender and the recipients have access to it. They can be opened on a special, password protected webpage and the links and access codes are sent in private e-mails. No other person can open the questions and answers besides you and your friend. To help to build up a conversation, the recipient of a question has the possibility to ask a question in return from the Sender but this is also done without revealing the identity of the Sender!

Musicmap | The Genealogy and History of Popular Music Genres - 5 views

  •  
    Musicmap attempts to provide the ultimate genealogy of popular music genres, including their relations and history. It is the result of more than seven years of research with over 200 listed sources and cross examination of many other visual genealogies. Its aim is to focus on the delicate balance between comprehensibility, accuracy and accessibility. In other words: the ideal genealogy is not only complete and correct, but also easy to understand despite its complexity. This is a utopian balance that can never be achieved but only approached. By choosing the right amount of genres, determining forms of hierarchy and analogy and ordering everything in a logical but authentic manner, a satisfactory balance can be obtained. Said balance is always the main subject of discussion in music genre genealogies and the capital reason why an absolute visual reference has been absent thus far (and probably always will be). Musicmap is a platform in search for the perfect balance of popular music genres to provide a powerful tool for educational means or a complementary framework in the field of music metadata and automatic taxonomy.

RedCaster | Real Time News - 7 views

  •  
    What is Redcaster?Semantic Web The 'Semantic Web' is the concept the Internet is more than just a collection of documents with words in them.  The development of the semantic web consists of efforts to 'understand' what the content is about, and to link it together with related documents. Automatic Categorisation Redcaster provides a system which can automatically identify the higher-level 'meta' categories that the article discusses. Redcaster currently offers two distinct categorisation services: Article categories For instance, an article about Barack Obama and the annual state of the nation address would return the categories 'United States', 'Politics', 'Government'.  These categories do not need to be specifically mentioned in the article for them to be identified.Related categories Redcaster can suggest categories which are closely related to the category in question.  For instance, 'Politics' returns 'United States', 'United Kingdom', 'Government' and more.Learning System Redcaster is not a static knowledge base.  It is a learning system capable of recognising new topics and concepts.  If a new subject or person enters the lexicon, then over time this will become a category which Redcaster will start tagging articles with. Free access Redcaster offers a free account and an easy-to-use interface for news publishers to access.  With this account, publishers can submit either their content directly, or links to published articles.

Snake Oil? The scientific evidence for health supplements | Information Is Beautiful - 2 views

    This visualisation generates itself from this Google Doc. So when new research comes out, we can quickly update the data and regenerate the image. (How cool is that??) Hopefully then this should be a useful web resources for years to come. About the imageThis image is a "balloon race". The higher a bubble, the greater the evidence for its effectiveness. But the supplements are only effective for the conditions listed inside the bubble. You might also see multiple bubbles for certain supps. These is because some supps affect a range of conditions, but the evidence quality varies from condition to condition. For example, there's strong evidence that Green Tea is good for cholesterol levels. But evidence for its anti-cancer effects is conflicting. In these cases, we give a supp another bubble.

CSS3 Selectors Test, CSS3 .info - 2 views

  •  
    After starting the test-suite it will automatically run a large number of small tests which will determine if your browser is compatible with a large number of CSS selectors. If it is not compatible with a particular selector it is marked as such. You can click on each CSS selector to see the results, including a small example and explanation for each of tests. Because it is technically not possible to simulate certain user interactions the test is limited to CSS selectors that are not dependent on user interactions. So this test-suite does not include tests for the following selectors: :hover, :active, :focus and :selection.

This is the problem solved by Facebook Places: it lets you show your friends where you currently are and also see who is nearby at this very moment. Localley goes one step further: we eliminate the disappointment that is inevitable when you find out you missed an event you really wanted to attend only because you had no one to go with - and later found out that some friends were at this very event and you could easily join them. Localley lets you share your plans to go somewhere with your friends and even invite them to join you - which will quickly solve a problem of a company.

Visualizing Yahoo! Mail - 4 views

  •  
    Hundreds of thousands of emails are sent every second, and yet, you wouldn't really know it because there aren't public-facing streams like that of Twitter. Outside your own inbox, how much email is there exactly? Yahoo, in collaboration with information visualization firm Periscopic, shows you how much email they process in real-time with this interactive feature. The initial view is a world map, and scaled bubbles represent how many emails were currently sent. Hover over continents for user geographic distribution and gigabytes sent. There's also trending topics from anonymized subject headers via streamgraph. The view is interesting as you can click on sections so that the surrounding streams split, so you get a sense of distribution along with details per keyword. The keyword data, however, isn't all that interesting for the most part. You'll see keywords such as online, free, and nights. Not too meaningful. There are a few exceptions though like Oprah and wars. There is also an option to include spam keywords with equally generic terms. Finally, if you go back to the map and keep on clicking, you eventually get to some fun facts about email, such as there are over sextillion ways to spell Viagra. All in all, it's a comprehensive view of how much email Yahoo handles that's fun to poke around. Turn on your speakers for playful sound effects. via http://flowingdata.com/2011/10/13/visualizing-yahoo-email-processing-in-real-time/

Youtego Private Beta - Welcome to Youtego - 1 views

shared by yc c on 29 Sep 09 - Cached
  •  
    What is this?? says: Youtego is a new visual tool for self-visualization in the Internet. We believe in the concept of "recognize yourself to recognize the world around you". This patented concept of self-visualization represents what you believe, feel, know, taught or capable of doing. That concept represents you. The process of self-visualization in Youtego is a combination of semantics (word, phrase) and its visual representation (picture, photo), that you define and select-crop all by yourself. Ultimately, you get the combination or matrix of visual objects that you personally defined and visualized. That combination is younique, because you are younique! However the elements of that matrix (we call them tego-s) may match with people's tego-s anywhere in the world. As a result, you start matching with people by elements (tego-s) that you defined and start experiencing this natural feeling that we all, humans possess - discovering the world of people, the world of self-similarities, the world of emotions around you. Aren't we doing that everyday all our life?
