from wired:

MIT’s Media Lab is experimenting with a tool for indexing the most popular hypertext links across thousands of weblogs and has ambitious plans to turn it into a resource for the mass media.

Launched last week, Blogdex is like a search-engine spider that visits about 9,000 weblogs a day looking for hypertext links.

It extracts the links and ranks them by popularity.

Albany Dan provided me with another great link– the Is Dick Cheney Dead Yet Weblog. He (Danno) and I are in the process of setting up a group blog for all of our friends from buttalo. The leading domain choice is ‘suckahs’, though we can’t agree on dot ORG or dot COM. What do you think?

Someone from Hamburg, Germany sent me an e-mail asking for family tree information on the my surname. Unfortunetely, i don’t have any information. The only information i have comes from my mom’s mom’s family– which is English.

Danibat did something interesting– took

Danibat did something interesting– took a famous painting, and recreated it using text. This isn’t your older brother’s ASCII art…

The Flickerstick show was

The Flickerstick show was incredible. They projected motion graphics type stuff from the back onto stage, and had cuts from movies like ‘Willy Wonka‘ playing in between songs. Rex ‘El Dangeroso’, one of the guitarists, was in true form– at one point he was soloing in the crowd.

This has been quite the

This has been quite the weekend for live music– Francine and the Fly Seville last night at T.T.’s, and Flickerstick (from VH1’s Bands on the Run) tonight at the Middle East Downstairs.

Oh and last night, we were on our way back from Portsmouth, when we got stuck in the traffic for the Monkees hatch shell concert. doh.

Gretchen told me about this

Gretchen told me about this go-kart track in Braintree that features Formula-One looking cars:

F1 Boston is New England’s hottest, most complete entertainment and function facility. Whether you’re building corporate team spirit, launching a new product, entertaining a new client or just want to come in and race at F1, power is at your command. You’ll find state of the art exhibition and conference facilities…full-service restaurant…classic billiard parlor…shops…lounges… and, of course, racing.

NewsBlogger is Back! There is

NewsBlogger is Back!

There is this whale trapped on a fishing line out in the waters off the cape — and because of weather or whatever, they have been unable to free it. So, they’ve been shooting it full of pain killers– hoping that it will go unconsious, so they can help it out. I ask, how many drugs does it take to subdue a whale?

Funny things, these cursor trails.

Republicans experience nightmares when they dream

Something most of us Liberals suspected — Republicans can’t sleep at night. “Republicans are nearly three times as likely as Democrats to experience
nightmares when they dream.” (thanks to Albany Dan for the link)

Slate has a story today

Slate has a story today about the new diet coke ad campaign– the one narrated (bizarrely) by Ben Affleck, where he talks about his new (commercial) wife and how she stopped wearing sexy underwear. The whole coke campaign (including coke & diet coke commercials) has been an amazing success. Pepsi is still selling their sugary nonsense to 12-year-old boy-band fans– while coke is taking chances and hitting the mark. Jacob Dylan– now that’s a media dream. (oh, and so is Ben Affleck, though I can’t fathom why)

Searching for DSL– verizon has

Searching for DSLverizon has backed up installations in Allston-Brighton until October / November. And Earthlink claims that they can give it to me, but they keep canceling my order without giving a reason. This Broadband thing is a nightmare. C’mon! is all I have to say.
