Communication

With a little help from Google Analytics I had a look at the 130,848 keywords used in searches that eventually led the interweb surfer to this page from the first of January up until today. And there are some really weird things people search for. Here are a few examples:

  • i cant see from your perspective my head isnt that far up my ass (748 times)
  • never argue with a fool (713 times)
  • if you look at what you do not have in life, you don’t have anything, if you look at what you have in life, you have everything (600 times)
  • stupid is the man given opportunity doesn’t take it quote (380 times)
  • the one´s that succeed in life are the one´s that accept their misstakes (157 times)

The most interesting thing about these examples is that most of them generated very few new visits, meaning that the same people are coming to this site searching for these things in a search engine – in most of the cases Google. Often they are generating 10+ hit a day as well. Interesting.

At the Movies

So, you like movies, right? Of course you do. To save you the hassle, I went ahead and found a few movies you probably should see in the coming weeks and months.

Megamind

We’ll start off with some animated action. It’s from DreamWorks. Can it possibly fail?

But wait! There is more.

Have You Seen Me?

He is wanted by the Swedish police and Interpol. His Swiss bank accounts have just been frozen, Sarah Palin wants to have him hunted like Bin Laden1, American politicians would prefer to have him executed and American companies won’t touch him with a six-foot pole.

Of course I’m talking about Wikileaks’ found and editor in chief Julian Paul Assange. Very few people know exactly where he is hiding these days, and that’s probably a good thing.

Right now, Wikileaks is slowly releasing 251,287 secret US embassy cables. With only 926 of them out in the wild so far, they’ve got a long way to go. Today’s most interesting document was the 2008 Critical Foreign Dependencies Initiative (CFDI) list, a list of locations around the world that are of key value to the US. On the list are assets like mines, undersea cable landing sites and oil processing plants.

So Wikileaks has this list and they publish it on the internet. And I ask myself: “Why?”

Planning, Schlanning

Wednesday’s planning didn’t go quite as… erh… planned. Hans Olav and Ola managed to get to Beach Club in time, but Hallvard was stuck at home while I was busy putting out a fire at work. Of course it was a figurative fire, I don’t work as a fire man – although I sometimes wish I did. No, something suddenly created a digital black hole on the production platform and had to be fixed. After a good 16 hours at work the team hive mind had managed to find a solution; the universe was once again balanced nicely and I could leave.

By the time that happened, though, Wednesday had turned to Thursday and the planning was of course over. Without the supervision of responsible adults, Hans Olav and Ola had turned our original “North to South on the West Coast” plan into “East to West a bit from the West Coast”.
