Friday Recap: Hammer Time Edition
It’s Friday Recap time! That means it’s almost time for the weekend. Huzzah!
Hey, did you know The Wonders Years may be coming back to television? Holy Kevin Arnold!
This isn’t really search related but Jonathan Fields asked a very important question this week: What Do You Want To Be Known For? It’s inspiring and thought-provoking in that warm and gushy way. Give it a read and then go conquer the world.
The mysterious QualityGirl says all she really needed to know about Internet marketing she learned in pre-school. I’m beginning to think all that money spent on college was a waste. It seems all the education you need in life is over by age four.
After leaking and releasing wonder-browser Google Chrome, Sergey Brin says he definitely doesn’t want to reduce FireFox’s market share at all. Of course you don’t, sweetheart. Of course you don’t. Just like Matt wants us to know that Chrome isn’t really as evil as we all fear it may be. We totally believe you both.
The Consumerist alerts me to the coolest cell phone ever. It’s a giant teddy bear that you get to carry around with you. I know! It’s a phone that justifies the carrying of cute and cuddly teddy bears into public by adults. Huzzah again!
Be sure to cast your vote in The Twitties, the awards for the most interesting tweet on 140 characters. Hurry over and take a look at the list of nominees, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be really happy you weren’t at the gynecologist during an earthquake.
YourSEOMentor had a great interview with the always awesome Brandy Eddings, where you get to learn a bit about the lady, the myth and the cowgirl.
Over at SEOmoz, Rand Fishkin identifies 10 inexplicable weird Google search results. Rand highlights some good stuff, but the comments are my favorite part. It gets way, way nerdy down there.
And finally, we all get to see what life would be like if Google created the hammer.
Things I Learned On BoingBoing This Week:
- How to live in a school bus. C’mon, like you’ve never thought about it? I found my kitty Swat living in an abandoned school bus. I should have left her there. Oh what, are you still reading this?
- Some places in the world have seriously awesome fences. Who know?
- I want an anthropomorphic light pillow almost more than I want Susan to disappear. [I'm clearly not firing you enough these days. --Susan]
- A new form of child abuse: Allowing your daughter to think it’s “cute” when she puts 25 snails on her face.
