1. Foreign Service Institute’s Extensive Language Courses Are Available Free Online
A nice link from LifeHacker. It had lot of goodies although for Hindi , all it had was a pdf .
2. Facebook’s Open Graph Protocol from a Web Developer’s Perspective
I am quite excited about some of the recent Facebook announcements : especially the Open Graph Protocol. Once this semester is over , I will have some time to play with it. This article articulates some of the reasons why I am pretty excited about.
3. Google Buzz: A Robot Party!
I think this post brings to attention what everyone using Buzz has suspected. Most of the buzzes are equivalent to retweets and not really “original” . Basically, Information from some other source is being fed to Buzz. For eg, i have set my Google Reader to buzz the articles I share. Also when I post new blog posts, they get buzzed automatically. I don’t remember doing any "manual" buzz and it seems to be the case with many of my friends too !
4. This is What a Tweet Looks Like
A very interesting post that details the anatomy of a tweet. It is pretty interesting to see how extensible and machine friendly it is. With Twitter annotations , it will be even more fun. It is quite interesting to see F8 and Chirp announcements within days of each other. Hopefully, I should try to do some data mining project with these data.
Even though the title is pompous , some of the tips in this article are very good.
