Google Mars

Monday, March 13th, 2006

Google Mars. It’s google maps mars edition. I really like the helpful little links to useful information about the map. I can’t wait until the new data from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is fed in to this. Google maps is such a great interface for browsing the features of other planets. I also think this could help break down the boundaries that these other worlds have. Making them more accessible could help spark innovation in regards to travel and exploration.

This skobee thing looks interesting. It’s sort of like evite or that terrible triphub thing.

It does suffer from the possibility of being yet another social network service. There are too many to keep track of but at least this is more like dodgeball in that it’s about getting people together in the real world by both using it as a group planning tool and an announcement tool to people what you are doing. Unlike dodgeball which is focuses on the location you are currently at this is more in advance. They do have a simple email interface though to send out announcements.

The real test will be with user adoption. I’m going to give it a try.

update: Who knew anyone actually read my blog? Since they asked and to be fair to Triphub I should post that I think their idea is really good. Their current site doesn’t seem to reflect the vision though. The current set of tools is too limited. I want to see expanded though. I would use if it solved the challenges of planning a large group trip. Having a place for business, for sale organization, medicine school, etc would be helpful. Especially if the information provided details on group discounts and events appropriate for the specific size of the group. Having helped with organizing a company showing at E3, I found myself often wondering why there wasn’t a better way.

I’ve recently switched to Comcast as my ISP. So far so good. I’ve heard a bunch of horror stories from others but I haven’t had any trouble as of yet. The only thing I have run into is trouble with usenet. All my other ISPs have included free unlimited access to usenets. Comcast does not they offer limited monthly access I downloaded a bunch of, medicine um, more about stuff on March 1st and quickly maxed out my usage for the month. So I’m looking for other options. It seems that there are lots of options out there but most are a monthly fee of about $10 to $20. I feel that is too much to asking for the service here. I’d much rather sign up for a yearly service plan that’s around $30. I think that’s a much better price point for this type of add on service. I did some digging around to find some usenet providers and these were some useful sites that I found:

  • Crazy Egg is a website tracking service that will record every click by a users on the site. Then it produces a heat map that is overlaid on your site, search allowing you to understand what the users are doing. I think this would be really helpful with usability studies. I’d like to combine the heatmap with prototype test to evaluate what users are doing. Usually this can be determined from observation, this but having the map is great way to show clients the results.
  • “it has it’s greatest strength in comparing a lot of information objects at the same time by making it possible to perceive very high information densities with up to 7 quality dimensions simultaneously. “

So Edgeio has finally launched. They say it’s the new and better eBay. I’ll go and and play with it latter this week.

Combined with Google Base there will be even more ways to make money selling stuff online. If you want to see what a product looks like for sale on google base go take a look at Magic the Unicorn

I can’t wait until craigslist integrates some sort of simple payment system.

Ask no longer has Jeeves but it does seem to keep trying to be competitive . They have a new design and a bunch of cool new features.

I’m very interested in these new services that help people make money online. From the new Google base with e-commerce, page Edgeio and Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. There’s another new arrival to the online marketplace called Ether. It’s the e-commerce of service. In this case people search for skills and then call or email that person and pay for their time.

They supply the phone number and then you set up what hours you are available and your rate.

I’m thinking about setting up a spiritual / technical hotline. If you’re having trouble with your inner binary I can help.

I’m not sure that everyone wants to be a work at home call center, buy more about but I think this could be a good way for someone to make some quick consulting money. I could also see this as a good starting point for someone to increase their own personal brand awareness.
