TTMMHTM: Public data explorer, good weather, dogs with taches, and automated Twitter to delicious bookmarkingMonday, March 8th, 2010
Things that made me happy this morning:
I just arrived in Atlanta for Georgia Tech University hack day and the weather is awesome. I spent the day in the sun in cafes writing my slides for the Mix10 conference next week and now I am going through my feeds. So time for another TTMMHTM:
- YouTube is changing its URLs – this didn’t really make me happy but it means I know why some people cannot use Easy YouTube at the moment and I know now that it is easy to fix.
- Google released a Public Data Directory taking government data and running it through the visualization API to allow you to directly embed charts into your pages. The Guardian’s World Government Data collection is still much more detailed but well done Google.
- The Humunga Stache Dog Toy makes me wish I had a dog to mess with.
- Carsonified/ThinkVitamin released my article on GeoExplorer and using Yahoo’s geo technology
- Creative people rock: 45 robots build with everyday trash
- Packrati.us is a service to automatically add URLs you tweet about to del.icio.us – this saves me some time!
- RadarVirtuel is a live map of aircraft and where they are right at this moment, where they came from and where they are headed.
- What do you suggest? takes a seed from you (or gives you something random) then guides you on a journey through language and the collective lives of Google users.
- GestureCons are a set of icons for touch-screen devices. My favourite is the two finger slide which in England doesn’t go down well as it also is the two finger salute
