    Admiring the commitment you put into your website and in depth information you provide. It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material. Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    Discovered your webpage when I was looking for information and facts for our web site, obviously this may not be all releative however its funny how you can access a website by accident and discover oneself reading through something completely different but just as usable. I am inclined to get distracted a hell of a lot doing this.

    Thoughts are of the fact that first quake was “a sign” with the second quake. What you’ll want to consider is actually if either quakes and the 150+ subsequent to shocks usually are signs of what is to come. Japan, The african continent, the western side coast in the US, and all your other areas in the ring of fire previously had better evacuate AT THIS MOMENT! The a lot of after bangs are evidence the plate don’t just shifted, although crumbled its edge. There will likely be the largest quake noted down in human history happening with a matter involving months, therefore, the worst is usually yet in the future.

    …and if that isn’t a compelling enough reason for business to start taking Twitter seriously (and lots don’t) then I don’t know what is….

    will be quoting this a lot in the next few weeks, I think!

    Good point!

    Seriously, Twitter is so freakin fast, no wonder people use it for realtime information. Example: When there was a storm over Germany causing many delays in the public railway system, Twitter was my preferred source of information. No other medium could tell me asap that just few minutes ago Frankfurt Central Station had been closed. Amazing…
    Btw: this also works for train delays and much faster than Deutsche Bahn themselves can provide you with the info….

    I miss Ask Jeeves. I know it still exists but I guess it lost the butler feel. We were forced to use that as our primary search engine in middle school. 10 years ago.

      Great call on Ask Jeeves!

      Did you know… Reginald Jeeves is a fictional character in the short stories and novels of P. G. Wodehouse, being the “gentleman’s personal gentleman” (valet) of Bertie Wooster (Bertram Wilberforce Wooster).

      Created in 1915, Jeeves would continue to appear in Wodehouse’s works until his final, completed, novel Aunts Aren’t Gentlemen in 1974, making him Wodehouse’s most famous character. The name “Jeeves” comes from Percy Jeeves, a Warwickshire cricketer killed in the First World War.

      Both the name “Jeeves” and the character of Jeeves have come to be thought of as the quintessential name and nature of a valet, butler, or chauffeur, inspiring many similar characters (as well as the name of the Internet search engine Ask Jeeves).

      Anyone miss Excite?

    I miss Altavista, whose search marketshare declined 1 for 1 as Google’s increased. So if Twitter becomes competitive with Google, let the sound of Buzz fall flat back to earth. People won’t search in the future to find old webpages in the Google index if they can search for snippets of relevant text in social streams. I miss Altavista. I’m an avid user and fan of Twitter!
