Things that made me happy this morning:

TTMHHTM: Uni Hack Day, accessibility wins, out with the Bush and Testpilot

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

There are so many things in my daily feed that made me happy today, I had to categorise them:

Work and colleagues – education + accessibility

That new fella in the white house

  • Bush street in San Francisco renamed to Obama Street – I love this city and its people
  • Finding out that the new whitehouse.gov is licensed Creative Commons

Geek stuff

  • The elecronic playground is a web site dedicated to listing cameos of arcade machines and consoles in film and TV
  • YouTube Street Fighter – another YouTube annotations game/hack. Let’s hope this one stays up, not like the Laserdisc Dragon’s Lair walkthrough.

Open source good news and things

  • Mozilla Labs going on with Test Pilot – a usability testing platform in Mozilla that will analyze user’s behaviours and publish the findings. No matter how this works out the logo is full of win and I had a great time at the last Mozilla Labs monthly meetup. If you are in the Valley, make sure to visit them!
  • Crowbar – a powerful screen scraping library based on Mozilla used for rendering output before converting it (and a cool bar in Tottenham Court Road in London)
