Inspiring – this movie is funy!
Its worth remembering – sites which were hits, many visited it – all such sites are shown here in a cool visual timeline. I personally like to get some help remembering things, one of the main reasons for blogging is exactly that: when I thing something is cool – Blog it! So that I will remember it (oh and you might find it interesting also!).
I think that I own the people who made me find this “dipty” site, the line of persons and sites are like this:
- My wife – she accepted an invitation to visit
- Her collegue Pia and her husbond
- Hans – who mentioned
- The danish TV show “Spam“, who had a story about Dipity
There you are – the information path leading me to find Dipty! Oh, I almost forgot – You should also remember to visit ffffound.com/
So is this a dream?
But how do I get it?
It is mentioned that it has its own JAXER server, not sure if it means that you will be able to host it only some places… time will show! For now I keep on dreaming!
I am impressed! Ubiquity might be difficult to remember or even pronance but it makes FireFox a very strong tool for the web!! It is difficult to describe exactly what it is – well the cool techinical facts is that it is an add-on to Firefox which will convert Firefox into something much more userfriendly than a browser!
Imaging that you browse the net – you come across "something". I might be an article, a restaurent, a piece of graphics or perhaps a word you do not understand. Here is my go at comparing your acts before and after Ubiquity:
|You see an article which has a bit you wish to share with a friend||You copy the contents, open your e-mail, find the contact e-mail, paste the contents and e-mail it.||You mark the content, press [Ctrl]+[Space] (open Ubiquity), enter "email" and contact name or e-mail address, press enter|
The difference is that you will have to do some trivial things in the "before" scenaria. Open the e-mail client, copy/paste the selection to/from clipboard, find the contact. Using Ubiquity you simply enter this command: "email myfriend" and press [Enter].
Ubiquity is born with many standard "tools" (or acts) – like Google maps, weather, e-mail and wikipidia. It is (should be) simpel to extend the "tools" your self – and I guess many other will be around as this brilliant idea spreads!
Perhaps even Microsoft will support it?

If your are working a lot with the Dynamicweb CMS system you will find these snippets very handy! I have allready been published a very useful “eval window” snippet, where you can see a description about how to “install” it in your browser. Below are five other snippets targeted for users of Dynamicweb CMS.
I have choosen to set the snippet in as a link on each word, so what you need to do to get the actual code is to right click and choose “Copy destination”. On your clipboard the snippet will be then to use as I wrote in the article “eval window“.
