So how rare are you?

Try this site to find out...

"There are 2 people with the name Simon Bisson. You are rarer than a wombats wing nut."

"There are 551 people with the name Bisson. You are like a rare bird, Lost and pecking at nuts."

What do the authors of YourNotMe have about nuts? Alongside their lousy grammar...

(updated to note that they know about the grammar already, and possibly may well have a sense of humour: "Because it's Grammatically Incorrect")

World Of Ends is a new site from Doc Searls and David Weinberger. It's not another Cluetrain Manifesto, though it's probably going to be as important.

What it is is a simple description of what the net is, and what people want to use it for. As they say:

The Nutshell
1. The Internet isn't complicated.</br> 2. The Internet isn't a thing. It's an agreement.</br> 3. The Internet is stupid.</br> 4. Adding value to the Internet lowers its value.</br> 5. All the Internet's value grows on its edges.</br> 6. Money moves to the suburbs.</br> 7. The end of the world? Nah, the world of ends.</br> 8. The Internet’s three virtues:</br> - a. No one owns it</br> - b. Everyone can use it</br> - c. Anyone can improve it</br> 9. If the Internet is so simple, why have so many been so boneheaded about it?</br> 10. Some mistakes we can stop making already.</br>
And what's more - it's all in language suitable for media company executives...
