…700 Mole-Men are taking over Flickr?

700 Mole-Men Project

The 700 Mole-Men Project is an attempt to illustrate each of the 700 “naked-mole-rat-like people known enigmatically as The Mole-men” from John Hodgman’s book, More Information Than You Require.

If you’d like to participate, just head over to the official list, pick out a name, and upload it to Flickr. Once it’s on Flickr, just add it to the 700 Mole-men Flickr group, and it will automatically show up on the site.

…Flickr users don’t like Microsoft?

Microsoft Vs Flickr

To say that Flickr users aren’t exactly excited about the idea of Microsoft taking over Yahoo! and subsequently corrupting their user experience would be putting it lightly.

Currently, the Flickr group called “Microsoft: Keep Your Evil Grubby Hands Off Of Our Flickr” has North of 2,000 members, and over 200 photos have already been submitted.

It might not be pretty, but it’s definitely good for a laugh or two if you’ve never seen what a bunch of angry photo nerds can do with some time and a bucket full of motivation.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Shelfari?

Shelfari

Shelfari is a social media site for the book lover. Users create their own “personal shelf”, fill it with their own books, and can then use that data to see what friends are reading, give and get recommendations, create book lists, share opinions, and more.

Shelfari Shelf

Once you’re there, discover new books by seeing what your friends are reading, what others with similar tastes are reading, or by receiving a recommendation, and talk it up by connecting with new and old friends to talk about books, joining groups devoted to your favorite authors, or by bringing your book club online with you.

Showing off and sharing your shelf has never seemed so satisfying.

…Baseball tickets are tricky?

Baseball Seats

As baseball season begins, it’s once again time to break out your negotiation skills if you want to get into a game, and you don’t want to sit in the nosebleeds. To help your quest, Consumerist sat down with a former season/group ticket representative, and came up with a list of ten tricks (and one bonus trick) to score a seat. With tips like “Buy odd numbers of tickets” and “Go alone, sit near the dugout”, these might not be good for the family outing, but for the die hard fan who just wants to watch his team play from as good of a location as possible, they’re indispensable bits of knowledge to keep in mind. Game on.
