Insane specification, or RDF geekery? You make the call.
The other week, I found RELATION: A vocabulary for describing relationships between people. It's a proposed language, in full RDF glory, with definitions for "siblingOf" and "knowsInPassing" and helpful examples of encodings in HTML.
I passed it along to a few friends, and one of them, who runs the Questionable Utility Company created "EX: a vocabulary for describing former relationships between people".

No really, I'm glad our relationship helped me realize that I'm really gay/straight/furry/celibate. Because you're great! And if something so good didn't make me happy, it must have been something about me. It's not you, it's me.

I tracked down several sources for this crucial fashion accessory.
First, there's Billabong, with a lovely die cut and embossed cassette belt buckle of some random metal for under $10.
Then, there's the White Trash Boogie Cassette Buckle for $17. Note to aspiring bboys and bgirls, do not purchase fashion items with the words "WHITE TRASH" stamped on them.
Never content to leave well enough alone, the same source has a Cassette Player Belt Buckle. OK, now that's cool, but only if I can play my Devo mix tape while walking around the office.
Finally, Urban Outfitters lists a discontinued recycled cassette buckle. For the DIY crowd, they include a picture that shows how it's done.

From this, I found Tim Barsky's page. He's associated with Fillmore Rocks. He's a human beatbox and flutist, and he does both simultaneously. Check out his video (mov) or his mp3.
More wonderful weirdness is here on his downloads page

Stewart asked the audience if anyone knew where the phrase originated.
From my seat, I said "soylent green".
Here's the soundclip of the original use.

She said "no, I'd go to True in the Haight."
For most of the panelists, the web wasn't a place to shop. And when they did, they used comparison shopping tools like Froogle. There was almost no mention of Amazon.com, and only some reference to eBay.

Sergey responded that Google's cafe probably is in the top 100,000 and that there's room for improvement.
It's pretty clear -- others want to measure Google as one thing, while Sergey views it as another.

I first met Philip shortly after he started Fucked Company, and I still have his autograph ... on a Pets.com visitor parking sign.

Search & Destroy and Kenka, St Mark's Place, New York City

I was in New York for a wedding and reception earlier in the day, and found this restaurant after getting some amazing pierogies at the wonderful Veselka, just a few blocks away, so there was no way I could fit another meal in. Next trip, though, I will certainly come here.
