Hope you’ve had a good holiday. I’ve been enjoying my family, pretending to watch football and more or less catching my breath after a busy year. As I was thinking about the past year, I wondered which of the articles on my blog were the most popular. So here are the Top 10 articles from 2005:
- 275 Hours of MP3s tops the list, along with Part Deux and The Rest of the list. These three posts cataloged my MP3 collection, and generated a lot of traffic (not surprisingly) via Google search.
- Google Takes Over Earth — an article about Google Earth — grabbed the number two slot. I love maps and can easily spend hours playing with this fabulous tool.
- Converting a Sony DV Camera to a Webcam was also popular. DV cameras have become common, and the image quality is much better than any webcam. This article outlined my tests using a Sony DV camera as a webcam. And yes, it works great!
- Windows Live Messenger Beta Debuts is still a hot topic, bringing in over 170 comments since December 14th. It seems like everyone and their brother wants to get their hands on an invitation to beta test WLM.
- Flickr Screensaver described a neat little screensaver program that works great if you’re always online.
- Sony DV and Webcam DV Revisited takes a second look at the Webcam DV software that enabled me to use my Sony DV camera hooked to my computer through a Firewire connection.
- Collaborative Art describes an interesting project I participated in with the Squared Circle group on Flickr. I’ve got posters of the results waiting to be framed.
- Friday Random Ten- The Day the Music Died Edition was a simple meme. Fire up your media player. Set it to “random play.” List the first 10 songs that show up.
- Do you know the way to San Jose surprised me when it showed up in the top 10. This was a post from way back in 2003!
- Open Your Mind was another blast from the past. This entry from 2004 warns against dogma.
Looking over these posts you catch a glimpse at what matters to me. Stuff that catches my attention. Tools that are worth sharing. I hope you’ll follow along in 2006, sharing your views and ideas as well.
