Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Kinda neat. On a somewhat related topic (cool netware), my roomate last night showed me this new browser plug-in he was running (in Firefox, IIRC) that would display Google image search results in a 3-D sort of display similar to the look of the album covers thing in iTunes.

    Having used internet since the time of the “Lynx” psuedo browser in the days when dial-in bulletin board services were all the rage, I gotta say….this is one of the coolest web related features I’ve seen. Not particularly productive or useful in the normal sense, but one hell of a “Wow” factor.

    Ok, so the plug-in is called “PicLens”, and it’s free. In addition to Google image searches, it also works when searching YouTube, Smugmug, Photobucket, Yahoo, Flickr, etc.

    Check it out:

    Uh, why ?

    Other than wasting a lot of bandwidth, I don’t see the purpose.

    (disclosure: I -am- and old fart ;-)

    This is interesting. But, after searching the term “infopit”, it seems no one is sure what it means. Can you find out and share it with us?

    Thanks
