TGIF – @:-}

by Marie-Claire Jenkins June 5th, 2009 

Welcome to Friday and to another TGIF here at Seo Scoop. I hope that you have had an enjoyable week and that many fun and cool things went on in your life. As a way of giving a little back to the world for your good fortune, buy your favourite book and give it to someone, even a stranger. Wonderful things happen with the unexpected and you'll be glowing all day :)

Without further ado…

Stuff I really liked this week:

An isolation chamber-chair – Looks brilliant for those times when you just want to get away but can't – this is a thinking chair

If God texted the 10 commandments – quite funny and pokes fun at our weird modern language

The Obama Cairo Speech StreamGraph – nice visual of the words used in the speech at various times and also term prominence

Inner ear radio reciever – it's a chip and not available yet, not sure I want one, but way interesting

SIMILE widgets by MIT – totally open source and really cool, you get to create great data visualisations

Facts:

Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC

Printer manufacturers print invisible yellow dots on consumer\'s prints that check to see if a person is printing counterfeit money.

"Yahoo" is shortcut for "Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle"

111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321

The full chemical name for caffeine is 1,3,7-trimethylxanthine
