| Chronology of SmartTags, Autolink, and Butler|
First, there was an attempt by Microsoft (called SmartTags) to insert links into web pages. I thought it was foul, and implemented Microsoft Free Friday, which caught on and to its credit, Microsoft withdrew.
Then the idea occured to Google, which implemented AutoLink -- it is same bullshit, but folks tolerated it, because it came from the "Do No Evil" company.
Now Mark Pilgrim has released "Butler", a tool that does to Google what it is trying to do to others.
Turns and twists of the Net... Gotta love it.
Picture Number 11000
The portrait of palace artist Anant Subbaiah became the 11,000th picture in our picture archive.
Can you imagine the labor behind photographing, scanning, identifying, classifying and publishing over eleven thousand pictures taken over a fifty year period?
If you cannot, I dare you to browse our picture archive!
