Online Clipboard

Here’s another handy online application, to be found at cl1p.net.

It allows you to copy and paste between computers in three easy steps:

1. Enter a URL that starts with http://cl1p.net (example: http://cl1p.net/syndactyle/)
2. Paste in anything you want: some text or even a small file. Click ‘Save’ when done.
3. On the other computer open a browser to the same URL. You will find the information you entered in step 2.

No signup, no login. Thanks to StumbleUpon, my new best friend.

StumbleUpon – the Blogger’s Cheat

StumbleUpon logo

OK, I admit: I’ve been cheating. Bloggers, or a large portion of them, are said to be ‘pre-surfers’. They follow a zillion feeds and filter out specific information to post on their blog (excluding for example Life Bloggers, who write about what goes on in their life). A new service has arisen that has made this whole process seem largely superfluous: imagine just clicking a button and being taken to any of thousands of interesting sites and pages of your indicated interest – immediately. You guessed it: StumbleUpon does just that. You can even choose what format you’d like to see: video, photo, news, blog… The more you do it, the more it tunes into your interests.

So for the last couple of weeks, I’ve been (among other things of course) using those five minutes in between other work to Stumble around a bit, and discover great new things. I’m not a masochist who thinks keeping a blog alive needs to hurt, but with StumbleUpon it doesn’t feel like I’m doing anything at all really… I highly recommend it to anyone looking for inspiration or highly apt entertainment.

The big red button

I can’t believe how many time I pressed this… It’s sad really. Just don’t do it. Let it be. Do NOT press this link.

Okay, you wanna be the baddest? Let’s see you get to this screen, punk!

Musicovery: play your mood

Fond of new music but don’t feel like logging in anywhere or looking for certain artists? How about Musicovery as an alternative: either pick a point somewhere between dark and positive, energetic and calm, or just choose a genre, and watch linked bubbles appear with different artists corresponding to your mood. From every song you can go and link to other musical atmospheres.

I liked this better than, say, Last.fm because I get to listen quicker and with less hassles, and I can change moods in a second – which is mostly the way I listen to music: mood-driven. I don’t know how expansive their library is though, or whether they are still expanding it. I also like the layout and the fact that it’s really simple – although that can quickly change if the service were to become popular.

Get invites to Web 2.0 betas

Want to try out new stuff like Pownce but can’t seem to get hold of an invitation? Here’s the solution for you: InviteShare

It’s a fairly simple service, but does the job perfectly. Go to the site and register. Then browse the various betas that are being serviced – pownce, spock, myskitch, mint, etc. and add your name to the list. One thing this service does lack, however, is About links for each of the services. So if you want to be adventurous and try something you don’t know, you might end up rating pet pictures or something.
