Want, want, want.

a pie-in-the-sky treehouse made real - new york times:



Sadly, thinking it's never gonna happen. Maybe I can just have a treetop library with AC and a mini-fridge someday?

Incidentally, I'm posting a lot more than usual because I have a new FF extension that will automatically insert the URL of the page I'm on into an LJ post. Easier posting = more posts.

Data Mining 101: Finding subversives with Amazon Wishlists

I'd be a little scared by the privacy implications, but I'm too fascinated. Plus, since you CAN make a wish list private, and they're voluntarily created documents anyway, I don't think privacy issues really apply. What do you think the actual name used was? Something pretty common - Michael, or William, or something like that, I'd think.

Incidentally, have you loked at the Amazon wish list feature recently? You can have multiple lists! With varying levels of privacy. And you can make shopping lists for other people ("oh, mom would love that book, I should mark it down for her birthday ...").

Can we say how much better I'm doing with my posting frequency this year?

Rich and I basically finished registering today. For the expensive, not strictly needed stuff that's more fun to get - crystal, new flatware, etc. So, any wedding guests reading this, we are registered at Bed Bath & Beyond, and Fortunoff's, both of which are online. So please quit asking where we are registered (people were asking in August! we don't get married until April!).

I forgot to mention, Rich and I both had Friday off, so we went to Bed, Bath & Beyond and did the bulk of our registering. I think we got a decent price range of stuff, and not too many things (the guy said we should aim for 80-100, and we only got around 70 I think).

We still need to go to a department store for crystal and nicer appliances and maybe a piece of furniture, but most is at BB&B. Whew, one more thing done.
