Wikipedia Available as a Printed Book

The English edition of Wikipedia Encyclopedia contains around 5 million articles and if someone were to print the entire Wikipedia encyclopedia into a book, the size of the printed book would roughly be equivalent to 2000+ volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica (source).Rob Matthews, a graphics design student from UK, converted 5000 pages of Wikipedia into a printed book in 2012. He downloaded few hundred featured articles from Wikipedia and bound them together in a physical book that was almost 1’7″ thick. Rob’s website (rob-matthews.com) has been taken over by domain squatters but the pictures of the printed Wikipedia book have survived.While Rob limited his printed book to the featured articles, Michael Mandiberg’s team has a more ambitious plan. They’re working on making the entire English-language Wikipedia in print format. The work has about 7500 volumes, each made up of 700 pages, and you’ll soon be order individual volumes from Lulu.The project launched at the Denny Gallery th…

How to Schedule Gmail Messages with a Google Sheet

Have you ever wanted to write an email message in Gmail now but send it a later date and time? Maybe you are sending birthday greetings and would like the email message to be delivered on the exact day. Or you have written an email now but would like to schedule delivery in the recipient’s time zone when the message is more likely to get read.Microsoft Outlook has a built-in scheduler to help you delay the delivery of email messages. After you are finished writing an email message and hit the Send button, the message isn’t delivered immediately – it stays in your outbox and is sent at the specified date and time automatically.Gmail doesn’t let you schedule a later delivery of email messages but there are browser extensions – like Boomerang, Sidekick and Right Inbox – that let you specify a future send date for your outgoing email messages.

Big Brands, Sports Teams, Celebrities & Tech Companies Among 3,400+ Early .sucks Domain Registrants

The early registration period for the new .sucks domain ended earlier this week, and the list of registrants is a veritable who’s who of international brands, sports teams and celebrities — and the tech/marketing industry is well represented, too.Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon and Yahoo were all active during the “sunrise” period, when trademark owners could reserve their own names for about $2,500 per domain. The high price led many domain industry watchers to accuse Vox Populi, the company that runs the .sucks registry, of brand extortion. Even ICANN, the international domain oversight agency that created .sucks, has asked the U.S. and Canadian governments if Vox Populi is breaking any laws with its pricing and registration structure. (Vox Populi denies the accusation.)Controversy or not, the early registration period is now over and .sucks is open to public registrations. According to TheDomains.com, nearly 3,400 names were included in the .sucks registry’s zone file when the …
