To take a candid photograph surreptitiously, especially by holding the camera low and out of the line of sight. Coined in August by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee of the Yarn Harlot blog when she attempted to take a photograph during an encounter with the actor Greg Kinnear at an airport."
Funny, another named coinage.
For The Win. A bragging exclamation of approval, as in “K-Fed got the kids FTW,” or “I was able to open the file with Photoshop. FTW!!!” Originally part of the patter of the game show “Hollywood Squares” and later found in online games like World of Warcraft. Now largely used ironically and sarcastically."
This one is still not natural. I started seeing it on twitter used unironically and had to look it up ...
Nice! And here I've been trying to collect them all.
Oh! doocing all around?
Chapter 12: How to not get Dooced: "To avoid Jen’s or Simonetti’s blog-based mistakes, you need to know your corporate culture and what it is and isn’t willing to accept."
Whoa, someone's stoked.
Whoa. Perspective blown, wayback machine on weld.
Odd to note that I'm no longer on any perl lists where I would have seen this sooner.
Oh! Is that what those billboards were? Well, color me grinch, but, I had no idea what they were going on about.
And however could you pay for the horror that the gum-popping cellion behind you is going to gibber? Some "Extra-hot half-caf with-whip hint-of-mint mocha ... inna bucket".
Words that I never though would be seen together ... pretty fun though!
Oh! Not sure how I missed this. I need better Feeds!
He does certainly delight!
Whoa, and leaves eddresses and birthdays up for the public to consume. It dumps whole linkfarms of public entries from other services. Wack.
"Each bottle cost $75. Cases of four could be bought for $300, Gaughran reported."
Whoa, lining up all around the parking lot for $75 bottles of unknown quality? I think I even see some goths up before noon in those pix ...
I was always surprised by how much I saw this client used for twitter. Guess they didn't like the popularity because they started charging $15 for an ad less version when there are a plenty of competitors.
Hay! I like my Book Clutter!
Weird to see a retro-netflix business model.
"got PINs, CVVs, IDs, SSNs?" throw them to the wolves! Guess I shouldn't be surprised with everyone handing out their passwords: "oh, yes, please scrape my address book" "sure, log in as me an rummage though my account". Shesh, you'd think that they would have received the usual lecture from the local System Administrator.
"EOS will help visitors find content through a recommendation and relevance engine that looks at a user's activity patterns and makes personalized suggestions, Scheinman said."
Ah, finally some glimmer of the tribe code. I was guessing a weird network appliance/media portal set-top, this sounds more hopeful.
Also, tribe goes pay-for-features. Tribe Gold Star Club, got stars on thars?
Humm, I think that I like him more, but, trust him less. Funny That.
Drat, I guess that it's too late for "tear down that wall" speeches. Facebook is waay out ahead. Heck, there are even VCs devoted to Facebook Apps.
And Bebo throws a gantlet as well ...
Bebo Launching Platform: "The Bebo Platform is nearly 100% compatible with the Facebook Platform: the APIs, markup language, and query language are all the same."
So started the Social Graph Platform Wars!
Ack! I don't want salesbots breaking into my flights of fantasy.
Last week, St. George Spirits of Alameda received the news that, after seven applications, the federal agency had approved its label, the final obstacle before going to market. On Monday, the small artisan distillery sold its token first bottle, becoming the only American company since 1912 to sell absinthe in the United States. Then the staff took a moment to celebrate."
Oh, now that's Repeal Day in style!
TechCrunch saith: "We assume that Yahoo simply isn’t interested in maintaining another social network, especially since its purchase of BlueLithium was for its ad network"
Funny, I was going to swap my reg to a more active eddress and put it in the cycle. There certainly are a glut of event sites ...
And here I thought that Tribe was in the ZombiePool. Paid features has certainly worked for LiveJournal, dunno what sort of add-ons tribe can come up with.
Humm, maybe it's time to add to my wishlist ...
