How about that for a post title? About now you are probably wondering what could possibly follow a title like that. Well, let me explain myself or rather let me explain what Mozilla thinks of myself. I was recently informed by my Firefox browser that an update was available. Knowing those open source developers tend to get it right, I usually take them up on their patch requests. After a quick download and a Firefox restart everything was up and running again. Usually the “What’s New” tab is immediately deleted since it generally contains words to the effect web surfing is safer now or here’s another feature I’ll never use. This time something caught my attention. Somewhere towards the bottom of the page there were a few collages displayed with a teaser to Webify Me. Basically if I answer 20 questions they will generate a personal collage of what the web means to me (or at least that is what I took it as). What the hell, I had 10 minutes to spare and its cheaper than a shrink. 20 bizarre questions later Mozilla produced my “personal” assessment in terms of graphical icons… and here is the result:

What the hell did I answer that indicated I was living an alternate lifestyle (obligatory “not that there is anything wrong with that”) and spent my evenings creating stocking hats. My 10 minutes of spare time just turned into 30 minutes of investigation! Eventually I figured out you could click on the individual images and get some verbiage on what it stood for. Let’s just see what this is all about shall we?
