Like every year, I’ll be rounding up my favorite pranks on Internet Jackass Day (aka April Fool’s Day). In case you’re thinking of getting involved, Anil’s got some advice for you. We’re a day early, but it’s April 1 somewhere, so let’s get started.
* ThinkGeek’s annual lineup of unusual new products
* Slashdot finds its feminine side (yawn!)
* Yelp buys rights to the Pets.com sock puppet
* Bungie’s Pimps at Sea video game
* Yahoo buys Web 2.0, all of it
* Ars Technica reviews Duke Nukem Forever
* TeeVeePedia: TeeVee’s 10th annual entry carries on their tradition of the best written pranks ever
* SQL on Rails, don’t miss the screencast
* Google Earth adds some visitors to Area 51
* Wordpattern, WordPress merges with Textpattern
* LinkFilter cribs Metafilter’s design
* Homestar Runner goes upside-down
* DeviantArt previews new Web 2.0 redesign
Conclusion: Eh. The only two that made me laugh were the Flickr cats and SQL on Rails.
