But therein also is its weakness.
Over the next few weeks I intend to test some base theories about how Google does its ranking. One test is to involve one of our latest projects called zkimmer. Theoretically this is a graphics based mapping engine that has been adapted for publication display… I will be testing my theories ability to make specific zkimmer publications climb quickly up the Google Page ranking list.
I will also experiment with the name of a person that has allowed me to experiment with his mention on Google page ranking.
If these two experiments work out successfully then I fully intend to capitalize on it with the zkimmer publication list and then role out a separate standalone company to capitalize on the discovery. Come back in two weeks for updates.
Relevant research links include the original Google Algorithm white paper by the Google team called The Anatomy of a large-scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine. Further research uncovered this gem about citations in Wikipedia and how to reverse engineer citations in that incredible resource.
Followup projects for this entry:
- Find out how to publish in an educational whitepaper database like stanford.edu.
- A basic test to see how citations boost pagerank... possibly by using a citation engine that looks for appropriate highly ranked reference points within key words for a given web site.

During the course of our constant due dilligence to track competing or similar technologies to zkimmer we run into various winners and losers… unfortunatley DigiPage is a big loser. Junky slow user interface and a really junky web site… zkimmers variable zoom level just beats all these kinds of attempts hands down.
Digipage. Create stunning Flash page-turning brochures online in seconds from a single PDF upload. Video and dynamic content available. State-of-the-art Flash-based control panel. Dedicated servers, automation services and bespoke client work available on request.

Australian dollar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Value of the Australian dollar
The highest value of the Australian dollar since it was floated was 96.68 U.S. cents on March 14, 1984. In 2001, the value of one Australian dollar went below 50 U.S. cents for the first time, touching 47.75 U.S. cents in April 2001. On 1 November 2007, the Australian dollar reached a 23-year high against the U.S. dollar, peaking at 93.43 U.S. cents.
In 1966, when the Australian dollar was introduced, the International gold standard still operated. The dollar was at that time worth 980 milligrams of gold. As of December 2006 the dollar was worth 38 milligrams of gold."

Oh LG.Philips, you are a cruel cruel mistress. You teased us with your flexible 4,096 A4 electronic paper last year and now you are at it again with a new bendy model of the same 14.3-inch size, now with 16 million colors, 1.280 x 800 pixels and 7,000 hours between charges using a typical battery. You say that the "penetration of the technology would be fast in Korea," but we know what you mean. You mean we will have to settle with just licking it in Vegas, along with the rest of the other always-coming-never-arriving cool technologies. I just hope it tastes better than it looks in the front photo:

Have a look.. its more interesting than you may think.

It is a compression solution that is "lossless" meaning that the compressed data when returned from a compressed state is identical to the original pre-compressed data.
There is very little research in this particular field since the great majority of research is focusing on "lossy" compression methods for video and music distribution such as streaming video. In the case of "lossy" compression the data need not be identical to the original pre-compressed data as long as a reasonable level of perceived quality of video or audio is evident.
While this may be possible with video or music data forms, critical data such as financial transactions, communications and computer applications will become useless unless faithfully and reliably reproduced with zero modification.
The first major milestone is a consistent demonstrable example of the technology, and then to refine the method to attain its maximum feasible potential. The technologies initial target customer base will include satellite, communications and media companies.
The basic premise is that the failure of voice based computer control to achieve wide adoption is due to a control vocabulary that is too large to manage and that the computers must cater to an accent/inflection range that is beyond today's internet connected devices to reliably compute.
By simplifying this process and adding an open software type "community" scripting and development, MaxOS is positioned to bridge and address these problems and start to fully explore a world that is for the most part unexplored... namely the ability to control and interact with computers using your voice and ears only.
What does this mean for the everyday person?
- Imagine walking into a hotel room and being asked by a little box (that senses when the lights came on that someone has entered the room) for your identity and secure password and then interacting with a simple scripted voice service to read emails for you, to get voice mails routed to you, to read calender events and dial telephones for you... all from a device where the smarts is 10% local computing and 90% net based.
- Being told when there is a visitor at your door when at home.
- Being told who is calling you and responding to your commands on how to respond to each caller.

- Uniloc is a way of allowing software to be legally shared and also a way of limiting how many PC's can share the same serial number or license. Invented approximately 9/1992.
- Logarex is a radical attempt to derive massive compression form the use of logarithms. While Ric is aiming for a compression ratio of 200:1 his initial target is to reduce existing data files by 50%. This means that a DVD tomorrow may fit 2 DVDs of data onto the same space and eventually up to 2000 DVDs in the same space! Initially invented 3/2000
- zkimmer is a way to adapt mapping technology such as Google Maps to display digital versions of documents such as magazines, artwork, textbooks and novels. Invented 6/2007
