Another week, another 12 cool, amazing things on the web, as suggested by the Webmaker community in our community call. Check out Mozilla Webmaker and help contribute to the web’s awesomeness by making your own site. Or just tell us about a particularly cool amazing thing you found on the web.
- One Community Ranch is building a village out of 100% earth friendly, sustainable materials, for around $1000-1500 a unit. Each unit has a different design, but all of them are sustainable, practical and quite beautiful.
- GrabBox. This ridiculously useful utility automatically copies any screen shots you make to your Dropbox folder and your clipboard for easy access. Extremely useful. Kate Hudson sent us this one.
- The Free Art and Tech Lab presents F.A.T. Gold, an awesome exhibition showcasing some of its the coolest projects in its five year history. Has some streaming video as well.
“Release early, often and with rap music.” This is Notorious R&D.” –F.A.T. Lab
- Reasons My Son is Crying: Best explained with an example
- Japanese Schoolgirls Perform Superhuman Energy Attacks: Oh, Japan. Don’t ever change. This meme is everywhere now. For example: NPR-Z Happy Birthday Karl. Let’s just skip the “He must be over 9000” jokes.
- Stroll through the streets of Zurich: I’ve never wanted to go there but this site sure showcases the city. Make sure you turn the sound up for this one. Other cities really need to have something like this!
- Anyone for Pizza? Those little clips on the side may back memories if you are a child of the 80’s/early 90’s. Anyone else remember Samurai Pizza Cats? I’ll bet Jacob does. Anyway, its adorable.
- Because bacon makes everything better (supposedly). Bacon up your website!
I’m afraid this was a huge hit at a recent webmaker school visit (with 9/10 year olds).
- “You Must Code to Survive.” Giant Robots really do make everything better.
And of course, there’s some Mozilla stuff.
- Mozilla’s birth. This Code Rush documentary from 2000 shows the origins of Mozilla. Its amazing how much they accomplished, and apparently all while breathing toxic fumes.
- This interview with Mozilla board member Joi Ito in WIRED. Check out the awesome points at the end.
7. “It disobedience instead of compliance. You don’t get a Nobel Prize for doing what you are told. Too much of school is about obedience, we should really be celebrating disobedience.” – Joi Ito
- I give you, courtesy of the Wayback Machine, The Mozilla Museum!
- Using the “view source” button and looking at the comments in the source code, it was discovered that North Korea’s “official website” cost $15
- Jason Silva always blows my mind. Check out his latest creation, Brain Games.
See you next week!
