What if Twitter Had an App Store? Now It Does.

Like Summize before it was acquired and relaunched as Twitter Search, OneForty is Twitter’s missing piece. Similar to the App Store for Apple’s iPhone, OneForty is a marketplace for the Twitter community to discover and share tools and services that make Twitter valuable. It also offers a business platform for the over 20,000 Twitter developers to market their innovations. It brings order to the chapos with organized categories, tags and “essentials” to introduce new users to apps.

Celebrate Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week (BBW) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.

Intellectual freedom—the freedom to access information and express ideas, even if the information and ideas might be considered unorthodox or unpopular—provides the foundation for Banned Books Week. BBW stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints for all who wish to read and access them.

Video Artist Invades Best Buy

Video Artist Invades Best Buy:

Video Artist Invades Best Buy thumbnail

Borna Sammak, a member of the Free Art and Technology Lab, is planning an illicit exhibition for a New York Best Buy store on October 8. If all goes according to plan, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. all of the display monitors in the store will simultaneously switch to his incredible video art, which is specially built for hi-def screens and looks like the year 1992 exploding in slow motion (example here). It's unclear how he’s pulling this off, especially with the word out about it, but it’ll be the coolest thing to happen to a Best Buy in years.

Kids can play with anything, if it's Play-Doh

Kids can play with anything, if it's Play-Doh:


"Kids shouldn't play with razor blades, matches, chainsaws, cleavers or pills. Unless, of course, they're made of Play-Doh. The eye-catching ads are from Singapore, which needs better broadband access if Play-Doh's still a viable time-waster there. Compare and contrast these ads with the German campaign for Becks modeling clay, which, as we all know, played the social-issues card and made the world a better place. The Play-Doh tagline: 'Safe no matter what you make.' The stuff's even non-toxic, though if kids do eat it, what they'll eventually make won't be appealing. Via Ugly Doggy. "

"Use Myna to remix music tracks and audio clips. Apply sound effects and record your own voice or instruments!"

And it comes loaded with ready to use music loops and samples. Very cool. Looks like a great podcasting tool.

Took me a second to figure out what was going on here. These two guys spliced themselves into the movie Bad Boys II. I was wondering how they could afford to do all those car crashes.

Google Voice and Gmail are sort of merging

Google Voice and Gmail are sort of merging | Rafe's Radar - CNET News: "

Two new little Google Voice features just made their way into Gmail. A new option lets text messages sent to Google Voice show up as e-mail messages in Gmail. You can reply to messages from Gmail, too, which makes it a nice platform for carrying on a text message conversation.

Google Voice text messages can now be read and replied to from within Gmail.

Also, there's a new Labs feature in Gmail that lets you play your Google Voice voicemail messages from inside the Gmail viewer. Previously, Gmail would send you the text transcript of your message, but if you wanted to play the audio file, it would open a new browser window to do so.

9/11 was nothing, according to new WWF ad

9/11 was nothing, according to new WWF ad: "


Just in time for the anniversary of 9/11 comes this tasteless, nightmarish print ad for the World Wildlife Fund, showing dozens of planes headed for lower Manhattan. See a larger version here. The copy reads: 'The tsunami killed 100 times more people than 9/11. The planet is brutally powerful. Respect it. Preserve it.' Unfortunately, respect is the main thing lacking here."
