Get Paid For Toilet Blogging


People who do some of their best thinking on the toilet now have the perfect context for their blogging. Procter & Gamble Co. is looking to hire five "Charmin Ambassadors" to staff its Times Square bathrooms this holiday season and blog about the experience.

Neil Gaiman Crowdsourcing a Short Story Via Twitter


Coraline author Neil Gaiman wants to make a writer out of you.

His means for penning his upcoming project are as creative as the gems in his copious portfolio, only he can't claim all the credit for this one. Starting today at noon EDT, the writer began encouraging people to tweet in their 140-character contributions for his next short story, which BBC Audiobooks America will later garner into an audio book.

Gaiman (@neilhimself), who is already well established in the Twitter realm, will tweet the opening line and fans will be able to continue the story as they wish. BBC will log about 1,000 contributions into a script that will be edited and prepared to be read by a professional narrator.

Currently there is no talk of releasing the story in print form, but the audio edition will be available for free download at the BBC site, iTunes and other audiobook distributors before the end of the year.

Google Docs, Slowly Morphing into Google Drive

Google Docs, Slowly Morphing into Google Drive:

"The new interface of Google Docs, which is slowly rolled out to all users, brings the service one step closer to an online storage service. The 'items by type' menu replaced 'PDFs' with 'Files', suggesting that Google Docs will allow users to upload any type of files.


It will be interesting to see how Google Drive integrates with other Google services that store files (Gmail, Picasa Web Albums, YouTube) and to find the free quota limits.

Tony Ruscoe found in January an internal Google document about Cosmo, described as an upgrade from GDrive, a service that was only available to Google's employees. 'We're in the process of migrating all Google Doc accounts to Cosmo,' mentioned the document.

Update: Kevin Mohr found an interesting image referenced in Google Docs' code: . It's a folder icon that includes Google Chrome's logo, so it could be related to Google Chrome OS, a browser-centric operating system that will probably use Google Drive to store files online. There's also an icon for videos which suggests that videos will be uploaded to YouTube."

U.K. airport scanner sees you 'naked'

Image
There is nowhere to hide for passengers at Manchester Airport's Terminal 2.

The airport has unveiled a new full-body scan that can see right through passengers' clothes to the body, showing everything from concealed weapons to piercings – even implants.

"Our passengers tell us that they don't like being patted down by security staff," says Sarah Barrett, the British airport's head of customer experience.

Canonical Ubuntu Moblin Remix IDF 2009 | Netbooknews - Netbooks, Netbook Reviews, Smartbooks and more:

"Walk through the Canonical Ubuntu Moblin Remix. This O/S by Intel is focused on social media and arranging conent by Zones rather then program tabs."

I was just trying out Moblin this weekend on my EEEpc and liking it. And now, it seems Ubuntu is supporting it in the 9.10 release. Very nice! I'm really excited about this.
