iMia for iPhone™ Released (Sun, 10 Aug 2008 03:00:00 GMT)

iMia is a web application focused on bringing a standard iPhone web interface to the MiaCMS, Mambo, and Joomla! content management systems. Yes, the iPhone does have a full web browser that is capable of displaying any site, so it is possible to use these content management systems without iMia. However, the experience is often less than appealing since users must constantly zoom in, zoom out, pinch to expand and contract, etc. As with most web sites and/or applications, these content management systems were coded with the desktop browser in mind. This is were iMia comes in...

iMia brings a simple web interface to the MiaCMS, Mambo, and Joomla! content management systems for iPhone users. The application is designed in accordance with the recommended iPhone interface design guidelines laid out by Apple. iMia makes use of the iui project's fabulous efforts in this area.

NewsXperiment.com Launched (Mon, 04 Aug 2008 06:06:06 GMT)

Brilaps launched a new kind of news-mashup site. In the possible simplest terms, NewsXperiment reads a bunch of RSS feeds, approximately 200, from a number of highly respected sources and scrambles their news’ titles and summaries using Natural Language Processing techniques. The idea is to create interesting, funny, and/or timely new stories based on actual real-time events as reported by news sources of all kind across the Internet. The mash often produces comical stories such as “Princess Di Dancing with the Polar Bears at Golden Gate Bridge”. How would it come up with such a story? Well at that time of our scrambling there was probably some unrelated news about Princess Di, Dancing with the Stars, Polar Bears, and Golden Gate Bridge. We randomly select and break apart each story, scramble them up, and rebuild them to construct amusing and well structured stories. The magic is in the reconstruction. The engine is still in beta and thus the scrambled Title/Summary text still needs some refinement, but it is worth a bookmark and glance every day or so, as it already generates some pretty interesting mashups several times a day.

NewsXperiment is hosted at Google utilizing Google AppEngine. NewsXperiment also grabs a relevant image from Flicr to enhance the visitor experience.
