Some Update on Web Tech

Its been a loooooooooooonnnnggg time..
how have you been?


Its been a while i purposely do not want to update my blog. Why?
NO IDEA..

My pending post on Sungai Lembing Trip is yet to post.
My pending post on outing with my girlfriend is yet to post.
My pending review on windows 8 is yet to post.
My pending review on Facebook Timeline is yet to post.
etc etc etc etc....GOSH!


Yeah i know its final time and i suppose most of the people out there are dipping their head inside the larva of lecture notes and tutorials. They overheat your brain and eventually melt your consciousness away. So i figured that i dun wan that to happen to me. Thus that explain why i am here.


THIS POST IS A TOTAL MURMUR. 





My new Facebook profile look with Timeline:
     
       Well this Timeline thingy in the Facebook hasn't officially roll out for public yet. I had tried the Developer's Release yesterday. Well I must say the creativity from Facebook are there. I like the idea how they tweak with the traditional linear post sequence into a spiral of activities around a "Timeline". That is good, like you have your own little time machine (ONLINE FOR PEOPLE TO SOCIAL ENGINEER YOU). 

I travel back to the beginning of my Facebook within 5 seconds
using the navigate buttons at the right.
You cant do this on the old profile, you need to scroll for years.
     
       The problem here is, with the handy navigation button to "fly back" into history. Say if I knew you yesterday, we exchanged our Facebook. Would you like me to "fly back" into your history and know what have you did 3 years ago? (Some evil little project?) You probably want to hide something from me, ain't you? Well its my point of view. Decisions is up to you.

       Finally, I want to introduce something cool from Google called Google Ngram Viewer. 



       I am not sure whether you have heard of it or not. FYI, Google is digitizing old books and artifacts as well as modern books, journal, papers and etc. They do this by scanning these books into their database. Google's self written AI will read these scanned article and "understand them" and turn them into digital words. Those words and phrases the AI cannot read, they need human to type it into the database. So there goes RECAPTCHA, everybody helps Google in this project. 



       With these digitized words and phrases, Google Lab introduce something called Google Ngram Viewer. When you enter phrases into the Google Books Ngram Viewer, it displays a graph showing how those phrases have occurred in a corpus of books (e.g., "British English", "English Fiction", "French") over the selected years. Let's look at a sample graph:

The frequency of usage of words "god", "evil", "hell" and "heaven" in books withing year 1800 and 2008

       In the graph we can some interesting statistic of human culture. During 1840, HEAVEN and EVIL are ALMOST EQUALLY POPULAR. Since then it started to drop until recently it started to increase. (Terrorist Attacks?)
       GOD and HELL shows an interesting contrast between them. When GOD is high in frequency, HELL is low, vice versa.

       Let the professional do the lecture, shall we?  <- Click to know more about Ngram
