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,

TipTop Me Lucky Stars Challenge Results

Last week we asked our TipTop Fans "to discover if restaurants with Irish in the business name serve better food than restaurants just listed as serving Irish cuisine. We didn't get a lot of response, so either St. Patrick's Day in the SF Bay Area has lost some of that green and orange luster or this challenge was a St. Patrick's Day dump.

In either case, the lack of engagement is a perfect opportunity to show off how TipTop Technologies's natural language text summarizer can get make daily challenges easier for us all. Reading hundreds of reviews for a product or service is time consuming and only allows an impression of the data. The TipTop text summarizer can process hundreds and thousands of reviews for a restaurant or whatever, analyze the data, and create easily consumable text summaries across any relevant criteria.

Looking at the TipTop generated review summaries for restaurants (with and without "Irish" in their business name), ranked according to the best Irish cuisine in San Francisco,  you will get a taste of how this powerful summarizer can give you the quick jig before you jag.
