WikiMatrix - Wiki Feature Comparison

Are you gonna setup a wiki anytime soon? Checkout the WikiMatrix site which allows you to compare various wiki software projects according to a huge amount of criteria.

My favorite has always been MediaWiki (probably because I occasionally write for the Wikipedia). I use that for both, the Unmaintained Free Software wiki, as well as the Crazy Hacks wiki (both need some more love and contributors, hint hint). I'll checkout some of the other wiki software projects soon, though...

smashmyipod.com - You donate, we smash! [Update]

This has got to be the funniest cause someone has ever requested donations for:

After we collect $400 in donations, we will take that money to a local Apple Store. We will purchase the iPod, open it right inside the store, and destroy it right on the spot. The whole thing will be shot on film, and displayed on this site. This is only a social experiment, for the entertainment of the donors, and visitors of this site.

The $400 are raised, so expect the video anytime soon...

Update: The video is now available.
