A brand new service was just released last night, and its called Wolfram|Alpha, a "computational knowledge engine". I only have to use one word to describe it: "wow." I've never seen anything like it. It is like an endless pit of knowledge, geared towards high level math and science, but having other subjects as well. It if a must use for any advanced high school student and definitely college students. Go check it out:

Back to Blogging

Its been quite a while since I've last posted a blog post, almost a year actually. A lot has happened since I stopped blogging (here at least). I've become a co-founder of the web service SendItHome (, and its parent company Carbon Wave Technologies ( I'm just a few weeks away from finishing my junior year of high school, and I am itching to get out and start summer break.

For now, I'll stay on this blog, but look out for a personal website of mine coming out in the next year or so!

SmallWorlds: Now in Public Beta

SmallWorlds, a new virtual world developed by New Zealand based Outsmart, was finally released into public beta today after over 18 months of private beta testing. SmallWorlds is a virtual world which integrates popular web2.o services such as YouTube, Flickr, Twitter, and into a beautifully designed world where you can do such activities as dance, play games, or just hang with friends. I must say that I have never seen such a well designed and amazing service.

Using "pixel perfect" 3D-isometric graphics, SmallWorlds easily surpases the hardly decent graphics of Second Life and has the best graphics, by far, of any compition it may have. In addition to having stunning graphics, SmallWorlds also boasts integration with YouTube, Flickr, Twitter, and through a variety of "widgets". These widgets come in the forms of flat screen TV's that play YouTube videos, picture frames cycling through Flickr images, and boomboxes/steroes/DJ stands that play music from or Seeqpod online music services. Integration with more web2.0 services is high on the priority list for the development team, so expect more services appearing as development continues.

On top of all that, I am thrilled to say that the development team do come into the world with sparkling avatars with the last name of SmallWorlds. They are easily identified and always very friendly and helpful with anything concerns or comments that you have. I had the priviledge to sit down and talk with one of the moderators, in SmallWorlds, about the current development of SmallWorlds and we discussed other possible features and services that they could add. If you ever see any of them, let them know what a great job they've done and don't be afraid to ask questions or make suggestions, you may be surprised to find that what you suggest may already be there!

I went around the virtual world and took a handful of screenshots and posted them on Flickr. Use the links below to view the screenshots or visit the SmallWorlds website and create yourself an account. If ever end up on SmallWorlds, look me up (my name there is Webb Masters).
