15/02/2006 @ 01:08 UTC

Andy Baio : Google buys Measure Map - congrats, Jeff and the Adaptive Path crew!

Jeremy Zawodny : Here comes Measure Map - Here comes Measure Map: google bought measure map... saw that coming a mile away

Douglas Bowman : Google > Measure Map - Congratulations to Jeff Veen and the entire Adaptive Path team that worked on Measure Map. Here's to even better things ahead.

Jason Shellen : Official Google Blog: Here comes Measure Map - Google picks up Measure Map plus co-creator Jeff Veen and crew. Glad to have the deal all sewn up. #

kellan : MeasureMap goes to Google, which means Ruby at Google! - Beginning of a trend? (I'd say this will fix the MeasureMap scalability probs, except G hasn't fixed the ones with Gurchin yet) #

jkottke : Google buys Measure Map, Jeff Veen leaves Adaptive Path to work at Google - Google buys Measure Map, Jeff Veen leaves Adaptive Path to work at Google.

plasticbag : It's official! Google buys Measuremap! - I've chatted to Veen a few times over the last few months but still this is a surprise. It's a lovely piece of work, which I imagine will fit Blogger very well. And I'm looking forward to hearing about Google's culture and swapping notes...

Linkorama : Here comes Measure Map - Bought by Google, congrats AP!

jimray : Official Google Blog: Here comes Measure Map - Jeff Veen joins Google, as does Measure Map

Nelson Minar : Jeff Veen to Google - Good for him

kayodeok : Official Google Blog: Here comes Measure Map - Our goal has been to use the power of web analytics to help bloggers feel that same sense of connection with their audience.

Ning.com goes live!

4/10/2005 @ 09:55 UTC

Andy Baio : Ning.com goes live! - 24 Hour Laundry's stealthy startup is an oddball social software playground; mind blowing geek cool

philgyford : Ning | Developer : Home - New site that makes it easy to create your own social software apps, from the secretive 24 Hour Laundry. (I did most of the HTML/CSS.)

jkottke : Ning, a social software playground - Ning is a platform on which you can build your own social software...your own craigslist or del.icio.us. We were just talking about something like this the other day at Eyebeam, a MMORPG in which you write applications to adventure together or fight each [via]

kayodeok : Ning - Ning is a free online service (or, as we like to call it, a Playground) for building and using social applications.

znarf : Ning - Semble impressionnant [via#

François Nonnenmacher : Ning - Ning (formerly known as 24 Hour Laundry) is a free online service (a Playground) for people to build and run social applications

Linkorama : Ning - Ning is a free online service (or, as we like to call it, a Playground) for building and using social applications.

erikbenson : Ning: create your own social network site - At first glance, pretty interesting! Having trouble logging in but I assume that'll be fixed soon.

Rod Begbie : Ning "Playground" - At the risk of sounding a bit "Less space than a nomad. Lame", can anyone explain to me what's so exciting about a service that lets you build hosted not-quite-as-good-as-existing social apps? [via#

cobra libre : ning - a "playground" (that is, "a field or sphere of unrestricted pleasurable activity") for "social applications" (i.e., "web apps made up of code and content that enable people to match, transact, and communicate with one another") #

Simon Willison : Ning - A social software app for building social software apps. That's so meta.

Paul Hammond : Ning | Home: Front Page - Ning is a free online service (or, as we like to call it, a Playground) for building and using social applications.

plasticbag : I remain totally weirded out by Ning, even after their relaunch as a roll your own social network service - I honestly have no idea why anyone would want this, and it makes me sad because I feel like I'm missing something quite profound. The benefit surely would be in overlapping social networks? In values in scale? I'm totally lost.

znarf : Art. Lebedev - Optimus keyboard - I want it ! [via#

plasticbag : The Optimus keyboard has a tiny screen under each key, so that you can remap it easily to any combination - Mr Webb informs me that each button costs tens of dollars at the moment, and as such it doesn't look likely to go on the market any time soon - but it rocks and I want one...

Eric Meyer : Optimus keyboard - Oh, that's just far too awesome. It would certainly make learning Dvorak (or playing games) a LOT easier. [via Dan] [via]

Ethan Marcotte : Adobe buys Macromedia - Welcome to the world of the übercorp.

Maciej on Paul Graham and other blowhards

5/04/2005 @ 09:55 UTC

Andy Baio : Maciej on Paul Graham and other blowhards - I love a spirited rant

Wayne Burkett : Idle Words: Dabblers and Blowhards - "I am not qualified to call bullshit on Paul Graham when he writes about programming, history, starting a business, or even growing up as a social pariah, but I do know enough about art to see when someone is just making shit up." #

Rod Begbie : Dabblers and Blowhards - Paul Graham (and ESR, and Winer) in bullshit-rant shocker. Despite people pointing to them, I've never been able to read a Paul Graham essay. Favourite quote: "Great paintings, for example, get you laid in a way that great computer programs never do." [via#

jkottke : Dabblers and Blowhards, or Why hackers are nothing like painters - Maciej takes issue with Paul Graham's non-technical body of writing.

deusx : Idle Words - Dabblers and Blowhards - "But you, sir, are no painter."

jimray : Dabblers and blowhards - Maciej Ceglowski doesn't think hackers are anything like painters [via Daring Fireball]

cameron : Idle Words: Dabblers and Blowhards - Maciej reveals the truth: programming is nothing like painting, as painters get laid for what they do

Steve Cook : Maciej Ceglowski beats the crap out of "Hackers and Painters" - He's got a beef with the Paul Graham/Dave Winer/ESR style of "hackers are" essay, and calls bullshit on Graham's qualifications to even -talk- about painting. (via Waxy)

plasticbag : A glorious response to essays on Hackers and Painters... - "Great paintings, for example, get you laid in a way that great computer programs never do. Even not-so-great paintings - in fact, any slapdash attempt at splashing paint onto a surface - will get you laid more than writing software"

Paul Hammond : Idle Words - Dabblers and Blowhards - So let me say it simply - hackers are nothing like painters.

doug : Google Maps - Check out Google?s way-cool mapping service in any non-Safari browser. Drag the map around, quick zooming, directions from A to B, beautiful detail, and more? Look out MapQuest.

jkottke : Google Maps is in beta - Safari not supported yet.

Rod Begbie : Google Maps - Another boring "it's been done" problem re-solved in a funky DHTML way by the brains at Google. [via#

Dan Cederholm : Google Maps - Linked from everywhere, but worth it. Hope to see support for Safari, eventually.

Anne van Kesteren : Google Maps - Yay, they use XHTML as text/html! (Too bad they violate section C and such, but whatever.) #

Simon Willison : Google Maps - Very slick, but sadly non functional for Safari uses. (via) [via]

anildash : elegant and attractive use of flash for headlines - seems like mike's found the best of both worlds

kellan : Attractive, re-sizable typography on the Web. - I'm not a Flash fan, but you got to respect the work that went into this. #

deusx : Mike Davidson: Introducing sIFR: The Healthy Alternative to Browser Text - Damn slick replacement of select HTML elements with Flash, degrades gracefully.

Anne van Kesteren : Introducing sIFR: The Healthy Alternative to Browser Text - Hmm... #

jkottke : So now we're building Web browsers in Flash movies embedded in HTML displayed by Web browsers? - I think I'm getting a headache.

Philippe Janvier : Introducing sIFR : The Healthy Alternative to Browser Text - Du Flash pour remplacer du texte HTML : complexe et plutôt lourd pour un résultat assez satisfaisant. Sans doute un exercice à reserver aux présentations les plus exigeantes.

Paul Hammond : Mike Davidson: Introducing sIFR: The Healthy Alternative to Browser Text - things which shouldn't have to be done

Phil Gyford : Mike Davidson: Introducing sIFR: The Healthy Alternative to Browser Text - Replacing HTML text with Flash-rendered text just to make it look prettier seems like precious designer overkill to me. But it's very clever and it does work.

Erik Benson : A well-written essay on a topic that ends up being pretty obvious - I do like all the Microsoft history folklore that's included
