So Mozilla Labs recently announced Ubiquity. The wow factor of this Firefox add-on is off the charts. It’s very hard to describe exactly what it is but the closest thing that I’ve seen so far is “a command-line interface for web 2.0 mash-ups”, if that makes any sense…  It would be best if you simply go to the link above and watch the video created by the man who is taking ownership for Ubiquity, as he does a very nice job demonstrating the different things that can be done with it. Keep in mind that it is still in alpha stage (that’s pre-beta), so there are many issues to hammer out and lots of things that are left to incorporate, but the concept is awesome. My favorites after the jump…

Today my Seester provided me with a link to an article, which asks “Are you on the right career path?”. Okay, so it may be on the Oprah website and it may be slightly more geared towards women, but so what? It’s still got some great inspirational ideas within. My favorite quote after the jump.

Yay for Android! Let’s hope T-Mobile’s claim that they’ll release an Android-powered phone (the HTC Dream) before Xmas this year are true.

Hit the jump for a funny video showcasing a real idiot.

Something else that I read about yesterday was an article written by David Quammen, [Contagious cancer: The evolution of a killer via Harper’s Magazine], which really got me thinking. It brought up some dormant thoughts that I used to toss around about Darwinism and the effect that our civilization has had on this process. Evolution is a funny thing; what I find particularly ponder-worthy revolves around the two basic elements necessary for the process that Darwin laid out: genetic diversity among the individuals of a population and competition among those individuals for limited resources. With these elements present, the door is left open for natural selection, which says that the “more fit” individuals of the species will thrive, and reproduce. I have always stood by the fact that we, as humans, have stunted the process of evolution among our species while the rest of the world continues to evolve and grow. How? Allow me to explain…

So I had the urge to see if I could blog from my Wii’s Opera browser. I was fooling around to see what google sites would render properly, as well as figure out which ones would retain their functionality. GMail works exactly as it should; however surprisingly GReader looks abysmal and functions even worse… I’d expect more from the guys at Google. Okay, point-and-click typing is killing me: peace.
