Infrequent Links of Intrigue and/or Interest

The Infrequent Links are going to take the place of what had been the “Super Happy Fun Time Friday” links I used to do. I’m just not reliable enough to post that regularly. The sad thing is that I’ve had some of these links saved in FF tabs so I wouldn’t forget to post them, athough some have been lost along the way. Today I’m cleaning house:

  • hCard Creator – Build your contact info in hCard format the lazy way with this handy tool.
  • Google Map Maker – is a service that allows you add or edit features, such as roads, businesses, parks, schools and more. Using Google Map Maker tools (see below), you can visually mark locations and add detailed information about these locations. Once you have submitted content, this information may be edited by other users or moderators. At a later time, this content may be published in Google Maps for others to see and use. Shares many features as Google Maps.
  • The Ultimate Collection of Photoshop Actions – One of Smashing magazines “Ultimate” list series. Actions aren’t only great for saving time, but also for learning more about how to achieve different effects. Stepping through actions can be very enlightening.
  • Lumens – Great lighting collections for your home

  1. Maybe I’m doing something wrong with google mapmaker but you can’t add points in interestin unless you’re w/i 1 km zoom level and none of the areas I was looking at have detail this close in. But its a great idea!

  2. Heidi – Looks like not all areas are editable yet, including the US. The interesting thing is that the map around Fairbanks only shows the city proper. The surrounding areas are darkened considerably. I need to spend more time in the Map Maker community to find out what is going on.
