The art of Japanese pen spinning

I'm starting to love digg! I joined it two days ago and it's amazing how much cool stuff they have there, here's another video I found on digg:

35 Most Clever Marketing Ads

This is another funny thing I found on digg:
35 Most Clever Marketing Ads

It's funny how our world is today, everything is a business, and every business owner advertises his business, and there are businesses that make their profit from other businesses' advertisements...

What's funny in all this is that we are the ones being "fooled", we are the ones that buy the products, we are the ones that click the ads we see online everyday, we are the ones that are causing these businesses to survive.

I wonder if the internet would still exist if advertisements were not allowed.

FYI, when the internet first appeared, ads WERE not allowed!!!

Just yesterday I created an orkut account.
I have an account on Friendster because all my friends from the Philippine School Muscat have accounts there, but I didn't bother creating an orkut account because most of them are from India, Pakistan, and Brazil, or at least that's what I thought.
Don't misunderstand me, I'm not racist, it's just that I don't know much people from those countries.
Surprisingly, I found a lot of my friends from the Philippine School, they even have a community :-/
Not only that, but they even have this thing called "Scrapbook", it's like comments but more like a chat, people reply to that really quickly.
In conclusion, there is more to social networking than Friendster :P

Suicide Hotline

I found this on digg, it's hilarious.


Web 3.0?

I have tried blogging before, but I gave up after a while...

But just today (Well, it's past midnight, so, yesterday) I read about the start of Web 3.0, so I said to myself "If I don't use Web 2.0, how will I cope with Web 3.0?".

For that reason, I created this blog, hopping that I will be able to commit this time :)
