Forget web 2.0, bring on web 3.0

You might have heard of the term Web 2.0...if you haven't, look it up.
Because we are moving from 2.0 to 3.0 and it's gonna be good.
Web 2.0 is based on a movement that happened on the web that catered to internet users to create a more interactive experience and allow more interaction between other users. Web 3.0 is based on the same idea but will now put the communication power straight into the hands of ordinary citizens. Forget the newspapers, tv news, and radio...I can now get my news straight from someone who has been at the scene and with the power of the web I can ask them questions regarding their experience and almost instantaneously I can receive an answer. How is this possible? Via a cellular device, your cell. Cell phones now have the option of connecting to the internet almost anywhere. Information and communication will now be faster than ever. Web 3.0 will also bring a more 3D experience to web browsing, how so? Second Life would be a great place to demonstrate a little Web 3.0. You can virtually live your life. Now, honestly, I'm not sure how Second Life will last, but the idea will be retained for a much longer time. The idea that an experience is more than just 2 dimensional, more than just a two way conversation. I would describe Web 2.0 as a conversation between two people online through a forum. Web 3.0 is a conversation between many people, in a more real environment, maybe simulated, maybe not; and more instant. Web 3.0: it's gonna be big.

All I needed was a reason

Another reason to get my Mini Cooper.

That's the Christmas spirit...

It took me a day and a half but I finally got my tree up...

Halfway through the week!

Atheists' holiday

In Florida, an atheist became incensed over the preparation of Easter
and Passover holidays.. He decided to contact his lawyer about the
discrimination inflicted on atheists by the constant celebrations
afforded to Christians and Jews with all their holidays while atheists
had no holiday to celebrate.

The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the long
passionate presentation by the lawyer, the Judge banged his gavel and
declared, 'Case dismissed!'

The lawyer immediately stood and objected to the ruling and said, 'Your
honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have
Christmas, Easter and many other observances. Jews have Passover, Yom
Kippur and Hanukkah...yet my client and all other atheists have no such
holiday!'

The judge leaned forward in his chair and simply said, 'Obviously your
client is too confused to even know about, much less celebrate his own
atheists' holiday!'

The lawyer pompously said, 'Your Honor, we are unaware of any such
holiday for atheists Just when might that holiday be, your Honor?'
The judge said, 'Well it comes every year on exactly the same
date---April 1st! Since our calendar sets April 1st as 'April Fools
Day,' consider that Psalm 14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart,
there is no God.' Thus, in my opinion, if your client says there is no
God, then by scripture, he is a fool, and April 1st is his holiday! Now
have a good day and get out of my courtroom!!

It's about that time of year...

Interesting news for the day

Sampson Parker recounts farming accident, his determination to live
Sampson Parker stood Monday in what had been a cornfield, calm and relaxed and smiling. Behind him was the rusty old corn picker that almost took his life, but settled for his right arm.

The machine didn’t take the arm outright. It just grabbed hold of it and wouldn’t let go. It was only when sparks from the machine set the stubble-strewn field on fire and Parker faced the prospect of being burned alive that he did the only thing he could to save his life.

He cut off his own arm with a pocketknife...(continue).

Can't afford a live band?

This machine was built as a collaborative effort between the Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School of Engineering at the University of Iowa. It took the team a combined 13, 029 hours of set-up, alignment, calibration, and tuning before putting together this video. It is now on display in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the University and is already slated to be donated to the Smithsonian.

Lipstick Kisses

According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was
recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were
beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom.

That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips
to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night the
maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called
all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance
man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem
for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can
just imagine the yawns from the little princesses).

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the
maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet,
and cleaned the mirror with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

Transformation via Photoshop

I've been working on designing a logo in photoshop so I've been checking out photoshop tutorial sites and vids. Came across an extreme photoshopping video on YouTube. It's a lil too risque for me to feel comfortable posting it on my site but I thought I should make that info available any way. Goes to show how much power graphic designer/artists have.

This video is another example of semi-extreme photoshopped pictures.

Blog Templates and Address Bar

I honestly didn't know that installing blog templates could be so much work. Way back in the day, I was a "Myspacer" and I would edit/change my page constantly via HTML and CSS. So I flexed my muscles, and presumed to think I could tackle editing a blog template. Well 3 hours into I realized I would need a little help. Enter jackbook.com the (almost) greatest man to ever live. (The "greatest man to ever live" title changes rather frequently, it goes to whoever helps me in my hour of need.) His FAQ was like manna from heaven.
In the process of installing this current template you see here, I found out what the word "uncomment" meant (believe you me, the definition alone took me an hour to find!)

Uncomment
: Remove the semi-colon
-verb
ie:
;extension=php_mssql.dll
;extension=php_mysqli.dll

So simple. I have to wonder why it took me so long. Regardless, the template is up and, if I do say so myself, looks fantastic. Special thanks to Jack.
I also added an favicon to the address bar/navigation bar. Way easy. I searched far and wide on Google typing in crazy things (ie. icon in navigation bar, changing picture in address bar). Finally found out how to on Mecury's site. Thanks to the now greatest woman who ever lived.
