"Wordle is a toy for generating "word clouds" from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like."
Over to Wikipedia for verification [hey, he’s from Montreal!!],
then finding the album he released in 2004 and the song title.
A visit Seeqpod for the musicwhich also links to the video:
Aside: If you have more than one option to share/embed a video, do you look at the profile of the YouTube member posting it to see what else they have saved? I do. I may like their taste in music but not their sense of humour.
I’m using a PC, WinXP SP2 and never had a problem before today.
Flickr images do not show up anywhere on the ‘net, on my my blog or in Google Reader unless I’m using the IE Tab extension. The link is there on my blog, but the image can only be seen on the the Flickr site.
Elise received a Bokashi Bucket from a fan who ordered them for many of her friends.

I’ve already asked at Mozilla Forums [waiting for reply] but I thought I ask here too.
will someone please help me understand what this actually means? (the parts of the policy that they seem to want to make sound so scary in this video.)

Let’s call anything that gets into Facebook, face-fodder. If the video captured the legalese of Facebook correctly, then it seems that we give away our rights to all face-fodder. Facebook can use all face-fodder for any purpose it wishes, including selling or giving it away. If Facebook decided to sell all the images (pictures and video) of Kate that were ever uploaded to Facebook to XXX, they could do so. Not only does Kate get no royalties, she doesn’t even have a say of yes or no of being used in the advertisement and promotion of selling product XXX. Microsoft is considering investing $500 million into Facebook and a recent New York Times article suggested that Facebook might be valued at $15 billion. It’s been long suspected that the CIA created Facebook. If we weren’t willing to give face-fodder away for free (fun), think about how much it would cost spooks and advertisers to separately collect it. Spying techniques with a revenue stream. It’s a bargain at $15 billion!
When I first connected a few months ago it seemed that the demographic was much younger than I. Lately, I have found that the many of the Vancouver Blogger MU members have profiles as do other people I know from work and elsewhere. Once I started connecting with people I know and have met in Real Life it started to look more normal to me.
After posting my own ad in the Market Place, I found one wanting worms and offered some to David. He came by today with his DD and collected enough to get started:
David’s DD had no problem picking up the worms out of the compost and putting them in the bucket.
If you do not have an FB profile most of the links above will not work.
At Google, you’re Organizing the World’s Information.
It’s important work because information is power.
At Meetup, you’re Organizing the World’s People. Actually, helping the World’s People Self-Organize.
It’s important work because people are even more powerful than information. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” (Margaret Mead)
Since yesterday afternoon, I am getting an error message that says I need to complete all fields even though the Tags *are* filled in. I keep getting the same error message when I retry, even after I’ve cleared my cache and restarted my computer.
It is hard to believe that a little video I created in my basement in St. George Kansas could be seen by over 1.7 million people, be translated into (at least) 5 languages, and be shown to large audiences at major conferences on 6 continents within just one month of its creation. In some ways, the journey of the video speaks volumes that the content of the video could only hint at. I know I could not have done this with the technology available 3 years ago – certainly not 13 years ago – so the world really is different and I’m just happy to be part of the mass of people trying to rethink how we can best live in this quickly changing environment.Digital Ethnography
Vertical Veg supports food growing in containers and tiny spaces: ideas, inspiration and practical advice.
If you want to grow food successfully in containers, nurturing soil life can make a huge difference. Worm compost, for example, is full of microbes and life. Add it to your containers and you will get more vigorous growth, and far fewer pest and disease problems. Discovering this, was the biggest turning point in my growing (more important, even, than self watering containers), transforming sporadic successes into something more consistent.
Why is soil life important?
Healthy organic soil in the natural world supports a web of life including bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes as well as larger creatures like worms and slugs. These organisms play a vital role in the life of plants. They break down organic matter to make the nutrients available for plant roots. They condition the soil and create air spaces and tunnels in it – improving aeration and drainage. And they compete with other more harmful organisms in the soil, ones that will damage your plants if left unchecked.
Soil life is complex – so the above is just my attempt to summarise some of the main benefits you can expect when you add life to your containers!
Why do you need to add life to containers?
Most commercial composts that we buy are sterilised and low in microbial life. So is municipal compost (it has to be made at hot temperatures to kill pathogens, killing much of the beneficial life, too). So if you want life in your containers – and to mimic soil in the natural world – you need to add it.
1. Worm compost
2. Homemade compost
3. Leaf mould
Bokashi is Japanese method of composting food quickly in a tightly sealed bucket. Benefits of bokashi are that you can add almost any food (even meat), it works quickly, can be done in a very small space, and doesn’t smell (much). The drawbacks are that you need to buy bokashi bran for it to work, and the pickled product is not as versatile as worm compost. But you can add it to the bottom of containers to add both organic matter and microorganisms.
Mix about 10 – 20% into the compost in the bottom third of a container.
