“On The Verge is ready for a lot of things, but we clearly weren’t ready for renowned astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, who stopped by to talk space exploration, life as a meme, and
why he carries a slightly-illegal laser with him at all times.”
Do we have a word or phrase to describe the following situation: You code up something complicated and it compiles and works on the first try. You then spend the next ten minutes trying to figure
out what's actually broken because it shouldn't be this easy.
The table flipper emoticon is CSS before content that changes on hover. Additionally on hover a CSS transform is applied to flip the video upside down several times and move it to the right and
there's a CSS transition to animate the flipping. The only issue I ran into is that (at least on Windows) Flash doesn't like to have CSS transform rotations applied to it. So to get the most out
of the flip experiment you must opt-in to HTML5 video on YouTube. And of course you must use a browser that supports the various things I just
mentioned, like the latest Chrome (or not yet released IE10).

states of a resource, available from archival resources in Web archives or version resources in content management systems, by leveraging the resource's URI and a preferred datetime. To this end, the
framework introduces datetime negotiation (a variation on content negotiation), and new Relation Types for the HTTP Link header aimed at interlinking resources with their archival/version resources.
It also introduces various discovery mechanisms that further support briding the present and past Web."technicalrfcreferencehttpheadertimemementoarchive

cell phone or Burning Man. It becomes a meme and meta Downfall parodies show up with Hitler yelling about the Downfall parodies. Now the studio producing the film has sent DMCA takedown notices to
Youtube and many of the videos are disappearing. In response is a new Downfall parody in which Hitler issues DMCA notices to Youtube...censorshiphitlerhumorcopyrightdmcaefflegalyoutubevideofairusememewebinternettechnical

more recent forays like Brown's Intermedia system." Covers things like As We May Think and others who could have made the Web. Would love to have this as a summary with links to everything rather
than a video =)via:connollytechnicalgooglevideointernetwebinformationtechnologymemex

other videos first for examples of what Hitler is talking about here.humoryoutubevideohitlermeme
