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!) —

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

From: Life To: Life

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 — in short, we hope the experience leaves you feeling tip top!
