Install Google Reader Preview Greasemonkey script

This is currently my favourite Greasemonkey script.

it allows you to preview your Google Reader Newsfeeds and comment copy and paste or do whatever you wish with the entry in a iframe…

Really useful, esp when not in front of your own computer (no access to Market-Samurai etc)

Youtube in 3D

February 18, 2010 Leave a comment
“yt3d:enable=true” test

If you’ve been blown away by 3D movies like Avatar and even the family movie UP from Disney Pixar you have probably completely changed your view on 3D movies.

You see when i was young I watched a few 3D videos and Those Dinosaur books with the horrible 3D glasses and although it was “Cool”, it never really looked REAL.

Well, if Avatar is anything to go by this technology has now matured and even a nice developer from Youtube has been impplementing it int he background.

All you need to do is
1) Create a 3D movie with a 3d camera (Amazon it…theres a few)
2) upload to youtube and include the tags “yt3d:enabled=true”

Google Browser size Tools shows what your users see

February 4, 2010 Leave a comment

People have a whole range of screen sizes and resolutions. Others have installed one, two, and sometimes three different tool bars.  As a consequence, the fold isn’t in the same place for every visitor.

That’s where Google’s new ‘Browser Size Tool’ can help you out. This helps you visualise the areas on the page that most people can see. Marked out as a percentage, it’s possible for you to reposition your ‘call-to-action’ buttons so that as many people as possible can see them.

Here’s what it looks like:

Have a go using the browser size tool and let us know what you find out.

Well, Marketing and Web Designer guys (and girls) usually sit with Beautiful 27inch Apple iMac’s which give you as much screen space as you can ever want on one screen (yes some of us still have externals screens attached)… I digress…
We have big screens, our prospective site visitors don’t, well we know some do, but how can you easily see who can’t see an important “Call to action” on your website or web application?

Google Browser size tool to the rescue.
Just visit: http://www.browsersize.googlelabs.com – It will make clear sense.

Interresting Youtube video: Personal Democracy

January 19, 2010 Leave a comment
The Machine is (Changing) Us: YouTube and the Politics of AuthenticityWow, ,  just wathed this somewhat educational YouTube video that
really shows how Youtube and social media is actually changing the
whole way we connect and reflect on the world, our surroundings and
what we call community.

The most interesting part is where it shows How and why the medium
allows people to be different and even more open than what they would
normally be. Similar to a confession booth ( wouldn’t know
personally). Maybe that is why Reality TV love the video diary format
so much.

It was definitely worth watching, since I started watching the video
at 04:30am and didn’t fall asleep.

Check out this video on YouTube:

P.S: Sent from my iPhone (a beautiful beast of technology) –
I haven’t worked on my MacBook the whole night but did everything That
i use to do with my old windows laptop two years ago, in addition to
the augmented reality apps, which showed me where the nearest coffee
shop is ( and that is is currently closed…)

p.p.s
Still need a Mac to get real work done though.

OK.

I have been on a Two month Adventure filled holiday to New Zealand, Australia and Thailand and have had the time of my life.

Frasier Island East Coast Australia

I’ve tried to keep posting a few Twitter updates and below is the history for the past few days.

LouisinLondon: Retweeting: @LisaHartwell Fantastic story about harnessing Twitter + your own charming personality 😉 to grow a business http://bit.ly/3SJl

LouisinLondon: Remarkably, Internet access is readily available in Thailand although there isn’t even a proper drainage system where I visited today. Weird

LouisinLondon: Only 7 Days left until I’m back in London. Hooray, and a feeling of loss… of freedom. For now at least. 3 Niches, 2 business plans ready.

LouisinLondon: Sorry for not responding to some new Followers, I will check you out when I’m away from these gorgeous beaches and cocktail bars. Until then

LouisinLondon: Flying to Bangkok for last night in Thailand until returning to the cold and snowed over London. Freaky London weather! I want another trip.

LouisinLondon: @fromtheold Sorry to hear about the Hi-Jacking in South Africa. Safety is the main reason I decided to rather start travelling the world.

fromtheold: @LouisinLondon How do you do that?

LouisinLondon: Bought 4 different “Evolution” T-Shirts today in Bangkok, From a chicken ending up on the Grill, to the Top Evolutionized human kicking ass!

LouisinLondon: I met a couple this weekend who moved to Turkey (where they get 20% interest on their money), “retired” at 42, and now travel the World. 🙂

LouisinLondon: @fromtheold I’m still working on being able to live mobile (to the degree I would prefer) using the internet as the main income stream…

LouisinLondon: I would like to live/work from:
South Africa (Feb,March)
Australia (April, May,)
London (June->Aug)
Barcelona (Sept,Oct)
Thailand (Nov->Jan)

LouisinLondon: London Heathrow has opened again for Long Haul flights so I can return from Thailand… :-/ Would not have minded stretching it a few days.

LouisinLondon: Welcome to @ChrisDJMoyles who have recently found out about Twitter. Amazing DJ on capitol FM in London.

LouisinLondon: Hi Tweeple.
Feels good to have access to all my IT systems again although the Beaches of Thailand was better… Wwwork to do. Money to …
