This is the nineth talk in the AG1 series:

Myspace, Flickr, Netflix and all that - Hot sites and trends on the web (seminar wiki)

The (short!) presentations will be very informal and there's lots of interaction with the audience. Rotunda 3rd floor.


msdewey (Holger) - A Flash based search engine. Interesting, interactive user interface. Search results appear to come from MS Live Search.

doodle (Jochen) - Hyped new website from Switzerland. Assists you in scheduling meetings with using polls.

tinyURL (Holger) - Making long URLs usable.

Journal of Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (Jochen) - A journal with an interesting review / discussion mechanism. Is something like this feasible for computer science conferences and journals?

surprise site (Santa) - To create a bit of X-mas atmosphere.

Presentations will rougly 5-10 minutes each.

this informal setting. If you don't have any idea yourself, you'll be provided with a choice of websites to present
