Spirits roam free this Halloween

Spirits roam free this Halloween

Our mining of last month’s tweets seems to show that free spirits are not just occupying Wall Street this fall season, but also plotting the usual ways to scare more pliant victims into coughing up some real candy.

Indeed, some people have such wonderful ideas for their costumes, it’s a shame others don’t get to see more of them. As usual, this year we have collected, analyzed, filtered and categorized thousands of conversations about Halloween costumes that you can explore and share to your heart’s content.

You will find people dressing themselves (and their friends, kids, and friends’ kids) up as Celebrities, weird and not-so-weird Creatures, Animals, Fictional characters and more.

We hope you will also like the new tabbed interface (borrowed from our new-look main page) which allows us to pack in a lot more into the same space, but gives you more control over how you browse.

So with two clicks, I can see one of my favorites from different “angles”, and am pleased to report that while Steve Jobs is no more, his spirit is not only immortal but very popular (and mostly happy!)

Even tried-and-trusted favorites like the pumpkin and the witch continue to surprise and delight. For example, here is a one-year old Handpicked tip that I discovered, with step-by-step pictures on how to make a paper witch cut-out.

I immediately felt like sharing the link, and did: my own girls delight in more grown-up witchcraft now, but I hope some other little girls or their parents out there will find the tip fun to try.

Whether you are young or old, whether you like to stick with old faithfuls, or will be brave enough to consider the zany Charlie Sheen (always good for new laughs!) —

Search TipTop for Weekend Fun

TipTop Search Logo TipTop is a one-of-a-kind Twitter-based search engine. Whatever you
need, TipTop Search helps you find the best advice, opinions, and answers as
well as people to engage and share experiences with.

WoW! Is the statement above true? You bet your artichoke hearts it is:) I was just fussing around this morning and remembered a good friend was participating in the PA Renewable Energy Festival this weekend and decided to do a search on TipTop's Event Channel to see if there was any real-time buzz. Techcrunch50 Not nearly as much real-time hupalala as the techcrunch50 event in San Francisco received earlier this week (on TipTop, look for "Search results from before…" to get all the best roundup Tips. The messages with red stars next to them have been ReTipped). 

Looking on TipTop Search to see what is going on this weekend, I came across a variety of messages (tweets) from contributors to this organic twittersphere. They are listed below with some TipTop sharing tips you can use to engage and share experiences with other interesting folks.

A. Event Promotions: Event_promo Click "E" to expand url or just move your cursor or mouse over external links to see a snapshot view of the content before you commit to click. Check out some great gigs in the SF Bay Area this weekend.

B. Advice or Tip Requests: Bayarea_Advice Click "Reply" with an answer if you can help a person out or "ReTip" them with another persons snippet of helpful information.

C. Activity Partner Opportunities: Activity_retweet Click "Reply" to the message if you are interested in joining in or "ReTip" the message if you think someone else would be a good match. Who knows where this might lead;).

D. Event or Activity Tips: Activity_ReTip Click "ReTip" or "Retweet" if you support, like, or are going to partake in said activity. Be real and share what you are passionate about.

E. Individual Activities or Plans: Farm_sitting "ReTip" a persons message to let them and others know what you like or think is cool. You could open up opportunities for yourself or your followers….like the surprisingly popular activity of farm sitting!

Renfaire_pirate Personally, I found out about the Northern California Renaissance Faire through TipTop Search and found out about ticket discounts, "ReTipped" the pirate invasion post, read event reviews, and discovered other positive and negative tips.

Explore TipTop Search everyday. It really does help you find the best advice, opinions, and answers as
well as people to engage and share experiences with.

Have a great weekend,

A New Breed of Internet Service called TipTop is Available From: Life To: Life

TT_Twitter_logo

Sunnyvale, CA, June 9, 2009 – TipTop Technologies, Inc., a startup internet technology company based in Silicon Valley, announces the release of an early-stage product for semantic analysis of natural language which looks at data as a source of tips that help people solve problems. TipTopSM is creating an engine of Tips and Tops surrounding all of our experiences — a wikipedia of expressions. The product will open up the social silos of our individual and collective experience so that one person's Top will be another's Tip. TipTopSM is harnessing those expressions of experience to help us all make more informed decisions and have choice experiences to share with others. TipTop Technologies's products are todays solutions for enabling incremental learning and unleashing the power of unique individual and aggregate group experience into the future. The core product is built upon natural language search algorithms focused on providing answers to questions formulated around sentiment, emotions, and opinions.

Users should view TipTopSM as a unique search product that will expand and develop as the technology, marketplace, and user base evolves and contributes to the underlying semantic search technology developed by our team” says TipTop Technologies, Inc. founder, Shyam Kapur. “Currently the product showcases just a small part of the search and community product functionality which will become more social, more personalized and more intelligent as product features are developed and expanded across technology platforms, social networks, and vertical product markets.”

Current product features to help navigate around your world include:

  • Using real time natural language search result content capturing opinion, emotion, and sentiment to guide decision making.

  • Deep exploration of text message content filtered by advanced algorithms, concept clouds, and contextualized categories.

  • Sharing discoveries across social networks.

  • Discovering how you, your followers, events, organizations, or products and services are expressed and discussed across an infinite number of criteria.

  • Discovering automatically generated search trends and editorially chosen searches to try.

  • Get the latest news and and most relevant content immediately.

TipTopSM is not a replacement for existing search engines, but will work across networks and platforms, regardless of the data source, to help users efficiently make informed decisions and quickly act upon them. Tips are discovered by searching for them, of course, but it is not necessary to index the entire Web. The TipTopSM engine finds many useful tips in conversational data, and a tool for exploring such information can complement the tools currently available for searching the Web. As true semantic technologies are not error free at first, TipTopSM is looking forward to the search community's feedback. TipTopSM hopes you will discover useful and relevant Tips for your Tops every time you visit, and that you have fun exploring our site at http://www.feeltiptop.com/ — in short, we hope the experience leaves you feeling tip top!

If you have a chance check out the TipTop video demonstration.
