Deviantart, a touted design community is probably the oldest and largest design community based on the web. Deviantart is the place to scour and find new wallpaper, oh and also other art stuff too if you’re into posting and all that.

My wallpaper pick for this week:

Sweet.

So i decided to try out hunch.com as I am bored as all hell @ work.

hunch

Hunch asks you some questions to get to know you, then based on your answers throws out a couple of responses to your original question. I found out that my ideal vacation spot is Tokyo, which isn’t too far from what I’ve originally planned, so good going Hunch!

So far it seems like the service has only certain topics that you can use hunch for but it will grow as the user base grows.

However it is interesting to think that something like this may be the future of consulting? (Not hunch specifically but the hive continues to grow and who knows how web based everything will become). Hunch itself is more than likely screwed if they don’t add some sort of twitter or facebook connect functionality to it.

Worth a visit if you’re bored.

As someone who cooks based on what’s in his kitchen and usually I mix and match a lot of garbage, this site is damn useful to find tasty recipes based on what’s in your kitchen.

Really really bloody useful.

The crap that people say these days:

– Water cooler talk you wish wasn’t posted.

http://www.overheardatthebeach.com/
– Chillin, nada to do but talk shit at the beach, stupid shit.

– Celebrities are an amazingly educated bunch.

– Like the aforementioned but from Everywhere!

http://mydrunktexts.com/
– Friends shouldn’t let friends drunk text, let alone post it into infamy!

So Wolfram Alpha the hyped up computational knowledge machine (aka Skynet) released today and I was pretty impressed. Although I can’t find myself using it in any regularity as I don’t find myself asking myself what the height of Mount Everest is divided by the length of the Golden Gate Bridge very often. Unless I’m doing a pop quiz with a deadline I can find much the same information through the google tab on the top left of my browser, without having to type in the ridiculously long name wolframalpha! Until they allow you to upload your own data and have it graph it for you and do regression and other funky stuff, I’m just going to keep this on the backburner.

Definitely worth watching out for and checking out though – www.wolframalpha.com
