Matt posted some awesome pictures from the first few days of his trip in Thailand.
Yet another web accelerator program – only this one is from Google.
Update: None other than Lowtax of Something Awful gives some horrible insight concerning the proxy in an article aptly titled “Think Before You Worship”. Apparently the software is ignorant of things like cookie-based sessions. God.
I’m actually fucking shocked – I mean, the first thing I thought about this proxy was “Hey, now everytime someone thinks they need a connection optimizer I can finally recommend one that isn’t spyware”. Throw that idea out the window – this isn’t spyware, it’s just the absolute worst thing a company can do with private data; share it with the entire world.
This one’s for Rob. Crispin Glover, the “thin man” from the Charlie’s Angels movies, was once on Letterman. There’a a video clip that was linked from Metafilter and it’s one of the most uncomfortable media moments I’ve seen. He’s suffering from some sort of combination of paralyzing shyness and drugs. Possibly both.
Everyone’s probably heard about Google working with The Mozilla Foundation to create a Google browser. This is more Moz-related Google activity:
It’s an XUL-based Google search, though the results are still HTML. It’s essentially an officially hosted component for the Mozilla (and probably Firefox) Google sidebars. Found on redemption in a blog. There’s also a now-hidden Bugzilla entry (that I can’t find the link to at the moment) where teams from both sides are coordinating on… well, whatever it is they’re building. Definitely interesting stuff.
The infamous Roberto Shamasio finally has a weblog. No longer will his ravings be confined to other blogs, and no longer will his insane ramblings be moderated.
