The newest Web 2.0 tool in my expanding arsenal of webilicious goodness: CrazyEgg. With registration and a simple addition of a bit o’ code you get:
- Individual click counts for every link on a page
- A summary of a click data
- And my personal favorite: an overlayed heat map
Pictures as soon as I get them. I’m using it for two sites, currently, and need to figure out where the code goes inside WordPress…not as easy to find the right place in the PHP. But I’ll get it working soon.
…but rockin’ on the blue note.
I’m going to miss my lime green iTunes icon…but the new blue makes up for it:
New iPods! New iTunes! Movies! The new iPod shuffle is seriously the size of a quarter…it’s amazingly tiny. And we’ve got a space jump up to 80Gig, which is double the storage of my 3rd gen iPod.
And the biggest thing isn’t even out yet…iTV, the much-rumored set-top box from Apple that will stream wireless video signals to your television.
Lots of questions, like: what codecs will the iTV support? Can I play my divx videos across it? Will it support 5-channel sound wirelessly?
Here’s a test-post from Windows LiveWriter…I’m just seeing how well it handles WordPress, and images, and such. Not a huge fan of local blog editors normally, but I thought I’d see how well Microsoft has handled this.
So what am I up to these days, besides being too busy to blog as much as I’d like:
- New workshop on Google Scholar
- A kick-ass new student-centered class on Plagiarism that uses music and sampling as a metaphor for academic writing
- Faculty workshop on plagiarism
- Finishing a presentation for LITA Forum on wikis
- Working on a book proposal
- Finding travel grants
To make up my regrettable silence to all my valued readers, I leave you with a too-cute-for-words picture of Summer Glau (River Tam from Firefly and Serenity) from DragonCon:
I’ve spent the last 24 hours in Atlanta, GA at DragonCon. I thought I would share with you the single picture that is the essense of all things DragonCon:
