Page Bookmarks for Tor HTML Online Books

Tor has put tons of awesome books online. Though I don’t really like reading books on my PC I checked out the HTML versions and was surprised there was no way to save your place.

The HTML on the pages is well formed and each page is marked off ready for bookmarking. Here is a bookmarklet to add the page numbers. When you are ready to stop reading just save the link for the page to jump back in to the book where you left off.

Drag this link: Tor HTML page numbers to your Firefox bookmark toolbar, then just click it on the HTML of a Tor book to add page numbers. Try it out on Crystal Rain by Tobias Buckell.

Who Has Viewed the Most Videos?

There are a lot of ways to measure how involved you are in the youtube community. I think most go by subscribers or videos posted. But you could post awesome videos all day and never really be involved with the community. I think one of the best ways to see how involved you are is by how many videos you have seen.

This is a quick informal survey I did (spreadsheet embedded below) of youtube accounts of different levels of prominence. I find smpfilms a little hard to believe but I’m not sure what advantage they would gain from spoofing that number. On the other hand I totally believe What the Buck (along with his personal account peron75) has seen 50,000 videos. I’m also impress with the number of videos BarackObamadotcom has seen. I imagine that that number is across a lot of staff members though.

Mia Rose and a lot of other sponsored channels have very few videos viewed. Almost always in the low hundreds.
