Discourse DB

Thanks to Danbri for pointing me to this interesting effort in using Semantic Wiki technology to create a user-editable database of commentators’ opinions on political topics. The Semantic aspect is that you can explicitly code for whether one article is arguing for or against a position. It’s a new project, and it will be interesting to see if it gets critical mass of content.

This is really creepy. Dress your kids in sleepwear inspired by Ephesians 6: 10-18. Via metafilter.

Apocalypse!

Posted by glittrgirl on 22 August 2006

Signs of Witness is the interactive site that tracks putative signs of the supposed apocalypse and end times, for unbelievers, belivers and the unbelieved. Scary.

Amazon Groceries

Posted by Martin Poulter on 21 August 2006

Amazon now lets you buy, review and recommend basic groceries. Amazon’s users discover that personal lubricant tastes terrible (and is available “new or used”), bananas are too big for the ears or nose, grapes fit into an eye socket and best of all, Whole Milk is not a replacement for methadone. An absolute humour gold-mine, so long as Amazon don’t delete the joke reviews.

AOL Stalker – The leading resource in anti-privacy

Posted by Martin Poulter on 21 August 2006

AOL Stalker is a bright and cheery interface to the mass of user search data that was released by AOL recently. Individual’s search histories tell stories that are often desperately sad and/or deeply funny. It’s an all-text site, but some content may be upsetting. See (man wants to eat own semen), (woman out for revenge), (jazz guitarist who fancies Hillary Clinton and animals) and (Christian woman wants to keep fit while pregnant).
