Fluffy Links – Wednesday 28th May 2008

Shane hangs up the boxing gloves. Shame. The year that he blogged he blogged so so well and brought blogging quality way up as a result. I hope we see some more Irish Times bloggers. G’luck with the book Shane!

Happy Birthday Derek.

Happy Birthday John.

Blog Post of the Month for April announced over here in a few hours. May will be announced next week.

I now own Spammado.com, guess where it redirects to?

How IT can help you be Green.

Vote No for Lisbon.

The New York Times is getting an API. Remember that Indo and Irish Times. Maybe RTE will beat them both to an API to their news service? Hah.

Finding “subversives” via Amazon.

The Telegraph outguns the Guardian now. Apparently.

It’s a marketing thing for Ford but I still like Where are the Joneses?

Find music on Muxtape using Muxfind.

Fun with Google and YouTube videos.

Emmet tests an X300 with a cappuccino. I’m currently testing one, I couldn’t be that cruel.

Via Nialler9, Take That covering Smells Like Teen Spirit. Warning Gary Barlow is topless in this. Mind the eyes.

    Cruel? Nay Damien, tis Science.

    Thanks for the link. By the way I’m relaunching the STIG blog this weekend (probably Sunday). We’ve already filmed our launch vid and I’m fairly certain you’ve seen the film it homages so keep an eye out.

    Looks like Muxfind has gone byebye already… it didn’t return a single search result for me just now.

  3. Shane says:

    Cheers Damien.

    The data mining article is fascinating. Finally I can track down people who read David McWilliams and give them a slap.

  5. emordino says:

    … and Catherine, I think the problem with Muxtape is that it searches for tape name or url, not song or artists. Questionably useful.

  6. Catherine says:

    Emordino – that’s interesting, tried searching on it yesterday and it was doing artist-based searches. I guess that explains the “working on getting back some of the features” message…

    Cheers, Damien. I’m officially middle-aged now (my licence to be cranky and not care should be in the post)

  8. Le Catch says:

    Thanks Damien…I more amazed by the people who remember than forget!

    Best wished to you too Shane!
