The Passion according to Facebook

Perhaps this is a tad blasphemous on Good Friday, but when I saw it on Sweetpea's Garden I couldn't help but pass it along. It is the Passion of Jesus Christ, re-told for the modern age through the "language of Facebook."

On a more serious -- but also interesting -- note, Wall Street's Trinity Church is telling the story of Jesus's death today -- in 140-character bits. Between noon and 3 p.m. today, readers can follow along as the tale plays itself out on Twitter. I guess you've got to go where the people are.

April Fool's!

It's April Fool's Day, which means the folks who brought us the Rickroll are at it again. If you try to view a video from YouTube's homepage you'll be in for a surprise -- many elements on the page are upside down and/or backwards.

I found the "Tips for viewing the new layout" particurlay helpful.

The Google folks are having fun in other places too, as they often do on April 1st. For examlpe, check out their new "Autopilot" feature for Gmail.
