Why?

Why not?

…It’s Website Wednesday: Huge Type?

Huge Type

Huge Type is “an experiment with found type on the iPhone”.

Basically, users take photos of letters and numbers that they find out in public, upload and tag each letter according to what it is, and then other users can search and view those letters on their iPhone.

Huge Type Words

There’s not a lot to it, but it does allow you to get together with other typographic nerds and form words and phrases by putting your iPhones together, and who doesn’t want to do that?

…Delicious looks delicious?

Delicious

Delicious (the social bookmarking site formerly known as del.icio.us that calls itself “the tastiest bookmarks on the web” and was also the father of the strange domain name), launched its long awaited redesign yesterday to help move the site beyond its late ‘90s style.

Though the underlying functionality is still the same, the new look and feel is designed to make it faster, easier to learn, and hopefully more desirable.

    Speed: We’ve moved to a new infrastructure that makes every page faster. This new platform will enable us to keep up with traffic growth while ensuring Delicious is responsive and reliable. You may not have noticed, but the old backend was getting creaky under the load of five million users.

    Search: We’ve completely overhauled our search engine to make it faster and more powerful. Searches used to take ages to return results; now they’re very quick. The new search engine is also smarter, and more social: you can search within one of your tags, another public user’s bookmarks, or your social network. Now it’s easier to take advantage of the expertise and interests of your friends, not to mention the Delicious community at large.

    Design: Finally, we’ve updated the user interface to improve usability and add a few often-requested features (such as selectable detail levels and alphabetical sorting of bookmarks). Our goal has been to keep the new design similar in spirit to the old one, so all of you veterans should be able to jump in without any confusion. At the same time, we’re hoping that newcomers to Delicious will find it easier to learn.

I’m a big Delicious user (http://delicious.com/cory411), but since I use the Firefox plugin, I rarely if ever visit the site.

However, with looks like this, I just might have to give it a second chance.

…It’s Movie Monday: Google Me?

Google Me The Movie

What do a cop, a swinger, an Irish priest, an engineer, a father of eight, an Aussie and a gambler have in common?

They all share one name: Jim Killeen.

Google Me is a film about one Jim Killeen’s search to find other Jim Killeens, and find out what their stories are.
