Slow slow week

I’ve begun to realise the negative impact that a slow-moving multinational can have on you – sucking out the life that was flowing through your veins (see – I’ve had to resort to stealing lines from Robbie Williams). So with nothing else to write about, here are some discoveries I made during the last week (or have started to use in great earnest):

  • Pandora: A great streaming music service, which plays music from a particular genre. Don’t get it? Neither did I until I tried it out…pretty cool
  • del.icio.us: Yeah I know this has been around for a long time, but its usefulness struck me over the last week, when I was e-mailing myself interesting links from the work PC. A great bookmarking tool, with plugins for IE, Firefox and Safari.
  • GTalkr: Using a computer on which you don’t have admin rights? Not to fret, GTalkr wraps Google Talk, Flickr and YouTube in all its Flash goodness. Nice!
  • Flex: A great way to create RIAs (Rich Internet Applications) with a language called MXML. Pretty awesome that you can get a good-looking webpage up in no time. And an interesting first tutorial to boot.
  • YouTube/vSocial/Google Videos: Your source of funny Family Guy clips, among other things…
  • Jobs’ Speech at Stanford: Ok this is a one-time thing – but its very inspiring. Very old again I know, but for those stuck in a rut, a must-hear…
