Introducing the Hipster Shuffle

The Thin Line » Gettin’ wid it's picture

[...] Anna claims that Google...

[...] Anna claims that Google owns her, well, they’re beginning to enslave me, too. I’ve added a Google Reader sharing clip to the sidebar (the bit that says “ricky’s shared items”). This will list up to five things I’ve read lately that I think are noteworthy. I’ve started off by sharing a cool and hilarious video of the Hipster Shuffle - an evolution of the original Hipster PDA. You’ll also notice that I’ve added Snap Previews to the links on my site. I saw this on the Wordpress.com blogs and really liked it. I’ve also begun the arduous task of moving the photos from the old RickyRobinson.id.au site to a dedicated photo and video gallery, which you can find in the sidebar under “Ricky’s Websites”. Most of the photos have been moved already, but the photo descriptions have not been migrated yet. It’ll be a tedious job, but I’m hoping to do it anyway, since I spent ages putting nice captions on all the photos on my old website. No Web 2.0 site is complete without an element of randomness. This is not strictly true, but I’m saying a Web 2.0 site needs randomness, since nobody really seems to know what constitutes Web 2.0 anyway. I mean, you read about random things on peoples’ blogs and invite random people to be your friend on MySpace (that’s what I’ve heard, anyway - I haven’t quite reached the level of coolness required to be a MySpace user). To oblige this necessity for stochasticity, a random image from my photo gallery will be displayed in the sidebar. And to think my Web 2.0 plans were almost screwed but for this inclusion! To cap it off, I have a funky AJAX powered calendar to navigate archived posts, afterall, what’s Web 2.0 without AJAX? [...]

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
