  1. Yahoo! Placemaker™ Beta - YDN

    Parses text and extracts any recognisable locations. (via Simon Willison)

  2. Welcome, ‘Wired’. We call this land “Internet” | Boing Boing Gadgets

    Interesting thread on Wired mag vs Wired.com, the relative importance and worth of each, their writers, conflicts of differing deadlines, content length, etc. No easy answers.

  3. Bits & Pixels – Blog Archive – Cross-browser transparent columns

    How to make the background of a block semi-transparent but have the content opaque. Bit of a palaver, but it works.

  4. The Little Manual of API Design (PDF)

    Sounds like a handy thing for future reference. (via Simon Willison)
