To Googleblatt..

Cool word...just picked up on it this weekend after the hullabaloo with Google and that fractal site. Via this cool blog...

Apparently, it's when a Google links to you in a such a way that you get VOLUMES of hits you didn't anticipate.

Googlism (Thanks Moby)

I was reading Moby's online journal and I happened upon a post about Googlism. The site says that "Googlism has been developed by a talented team of web developers. Googlism.com is in no way affiliated, sponsored or in any way the property of or responsibility of Google.com. However, we do use Google.com for creating our exciting and funny results."

Of course, like Moby, I put in my name. Here's what I got:

Is this useful? Maybe... it does illustrate how Google's datatbase can be mined for interesting bits of content... More sites, and books like GoogleHacks , will bring this trend forward....

WEBRARIAN: Cool Words Tech (and otherwise) for your Training Sessions

There's a lot more to talk about when teaching the Internet/Web these days. I have found inspiration at WordSpy. I read about Flash Mobs in the TC paper and then Dale at SJCPL sent me this article. It got me to thinking about incorporating many of the tech words there into part of a class.

Take a look at these:

Slash Dot Effect

What about the "Flash Mob?" I think it counts because the mobs are arranged by e-mail, etc...

This one is great: meatloaf ! How many of us get meatloaf and don't know how to ask the person to stop sending it?

Moblogging is short for "mobile blogging" which, in tern, is short for "mobile web logging" It is a activity practiced by a growning number of people who form a community of web sites that document the events and experiences of the various lives through the use of digital cameras both standalone and those that come with some of the latest mobile phones. Mobloggers take these snapshots and post them on their web sites. They often offer insites into the meaning the particular image has for them and invite you, the visitor to leave a comment of your own.

I want one! :-)

Google "moblog" and see what you get.....
