Like a Gangly 8-Year-Old, the Mobile Web Needs to Grow Up

baseball kid 150.jpgWell, here we are in Twentytwelve. Supposedly it’s the “year of the mobile” and all of our predictions about how we are going to use our mobile phones will finally come true.

Although I believe this year will be a pivotal point in the history of mobile technology, we’ve got a long way to go. Currently the mobile Web is like a gangly eight year old who, when you gaze upon you sense feelings of annoyance, intrigue and hope for a better future. We’ve all been there and it ain’t pretty.

Google Searches vs. Sentiment Analysis: Which Is The Real Zeitgeist?

zeitgeist11_150.jpgLast week, Google released it’s Zeitgeist 2011 report, offering insights into how the world searched.

It produced side-by-side comparisons of how popular a term was on Google versus how often it was mentioned on the Web overall. It also noted how positive or negative overall sentiment was.

Lolcat Trends

To the casual onlooker, lolcat may appear to be just a silly caption style for funny cat photos but lolcat lovers have banded together online to translate the Old and New Testaments of the Bible into their favourite lingo.

"Oh hai. In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez An da Urfs, but he did not eated dem," opens Genesis 1 of the Lolcat Bible. There’s even, inevitably, a paper book of the lolcatified tome now on sale.

Silly it may be, but lolcat has had surprising staying power - the lolcats.com domain was first registered around 2006 and lolcats are still powering popular sites like icanhazcheezburger.com.
