Star Trek 2.0: great riff on Web 2.0

Tim O'Reilly and pals are making a big deal of "Web 2.0" to the point where everyone talks about it although no one knows exactly what it means. The folks at the G4 television network -- the cable TV channel that swallowed TechTV -- are having some fun with Star Trek 2.0.

I especially like the Spock Market.

01 02 03 04 05 06

OK, enough people have sent this factoid to me so as to make it incumbent to note this in my blog before the amazing event transpires:

On Wednesday, at two minutes and three seconds after 1:00, the time and date will be 01:02:03 04/05/06. That won't happen again for 1000 years.

The Official 2006 Google April Fool's Joke: Google Romance

Google has launched its annual April Fool's joke: Google Romance. Google's home page declares:

New! Dating is a search problem. Solve it with Google Romance.

It's pretty darn funny - worth taking the Tour. I especially like this feature: Post multiple profiles witha bulk upload file, you sleaze

Nobody beats Google at crafting a great April Fool's Joke. If only Google would pay as much attention to making Google News a trustworthy news aggregator.
