Short links for August 23rd, 2007

Some interesting things I bookmarked on del.icio.us on August 23rd, 2007:

  • Vacation, All I Never Wanted – United States citizens annually have 0 days legally required paid annual leave.
  • Ultimate Flash Face – Construct faces from a comprehensive list of face features like hair, head, eyebrows, glasses, eyes, nose, moustache, mouth, jaw and beard.
  • Disposable Coffee Cup Lids – The innovative lid alerts consumers their coffee/tea may be too hot by changing from a dark coffee bean color to a bright red when the lid is applied.
  • Lily – Lily is a browser-based, visual programming environment that lets people create programs graphically, without writing code, by drawing connections between data, images, sounds, text and graphics.
  • Web OS rundown – 45+ Web Operating Systems
  • Digg redesign – Home page improvements coming, paving the way for digg images.
  • Recap of the WYYC’s Yo-Yo Modifying Contest – From all accounts, Shinobu Konmoto’s “Nostalgia” was the clear winner and perhaps one of the most amazing entries the contest has ever seen. Shinobu’s creation was a scratch built recreation of a vintage car wheel.
