lol wow.... he also runs a professional sports management firm. I think mostly for MMA fighters. It is called Alchemist Management.

I guess he is branching out in all directions, I wonder what inspired him to enter this market. I know he was an MMA fan and had music management experience so that relates to sports management. Not sure what real world XP he has for online searching though.

Anyone considering signing up as a beta tester?

Heck, maybe we should. MC hammer is cool any decade of the week. And unlike many celebs, he's not there because he's a freak, he's there because he excels. I love work ethic.

I signed too, using my test machine as I thought it could have been a trap; no answer yet.
Keep in mind it's a Pre-Beta

Where is the "know How" coming from?
and what's about the financials?

ah..a rapper ! ..

Wiredoo.com is running on amazons network.."cloud"
ec2 50.19.248.228 aws

Domain registered by Subramanyam Kumar of Gerivate Inc

Registered 2009 through to feb 2012

No site at gerivate .com ..gerivate inc shows up frequently with tech companies ..but is listed as "commodities etc"

Wiredoo, Inc. has a location in Los Altos Hills, CA. Wiredoo, Inc. has no known officers.Wiredoo, Inc. filed as a Articles of Incorporation on Thursday, January 07, 2010 in the state of California and is currently active. Vishal Verma serves as the registered agent for this organization.

Kumar has links to Kris Manian of Sun , Cisco, Symantec and others ( read his "linked in" ) ..maybe your "tech"..and connection to "money"..interesting if it used a variant of A9 ..

ps ..anything crawling out of aws is going to be getting kicked to the curb and seeing a lot of 403s :) ..bad neighbourhood to let bots in from ;-) see the spiders foraum here

For those that don't know, MC Hammer has been quite the high-tech consultant for internet sites over the last few years so this is not too surprising really.

(CNN) -- You can't Google this.

OK, maybe you can. But MC Hammer doesn't want you to.


You can, and I did...

Google: site:wiredoo.com


If that's it, they are pre-pre-pre-beta.

All that's there is someone's homework from learning about forms, server responses, session IDs and scripting/programming using Java Server Pages.

Hammer should tell his hacker posse to put away their toys after playing if he wants to be taken seriously.


Yo Hammer, Mr. MC -- gimme a beat!

yo search ain't da bomb
my word be real
yo engine ain't got no freakin' wheels

da gooey ain't sporty
da codes a dog
drink a 'nuther 40 and check da logs

when I gots a query
'n need some serps
wiredoo only fo hackin twerps
bing got da bling
google got da cash
'n wiredoo got no code to crash
wiredoo got no code to crash

so fo now i be down the road
ya peeps need code 'n some server load
ya peeps need code 'n some server load


Word? "Be real". I fo-shizzle didn't get all signed up in the izzle.

keywords: mc hammer search engine, wiredoo.com, weirdoo, mchammer, m.c. hammer, rap search engine

NOTE: keywords were put here in case Mr. MC Hammer is smart enough to keep a Google alert for his own name, his search engine's name, etc... Yo! Hammer -- if you need REAL programmers for your new search engine -- look no further than WebmasterWorld. Join then post in Commercial Exchange. Peace out dog.

He'd have to post 100 other posts before he could post in "commercial"..

J_RaD..if you think about some of those who would want a voice in how it was to work, what would be the criteria, and what was a "site worth having in the index"..that would not be a "great idea" at all!

Already the idea of a search engine, being run by someone who thinks that the way he mangles language is OK, and those who think that it is "cool" to use English in a way that can only be understood within one's own particular subculture, is an horrific idea, to those of us, who think that communication should be easier, and not harder, between people of all ages and countries and backgrounds..

And think of the "bling" tags in the serps..

Wow I checked his bio on Wikipedia to make sure this thread wasn't a prank. I just knew him for his one hit wonder in the early 90s and the parachute pants. Seems he's been an industrious guy ever since.

Don't let that fool you. If he looks a bit simple, it's a thin veneer covering what I believe is a very sharp individual, and a very sharp marketer.

No problem at all with how he looks, he looks pretty tame compare to how I have done for a large part of my life :) ..

It is the word mangling and the appalling diction that goes with most Rap ( not all ..I actually like some very much ) that I dislike..it is so far removed from understandable English that anyone who learned English as a second language or doesn't come from the same subculture as he does will not be able to understand if he actually has a message in the midst of all the labial and digital and corporal gesticulating ..

Dance by all means..sing in whatever rhythm form you want , about whatever you want ( as long as it is in tune )..but make the words damn intelligible to some one who didn't grow up within your society ( I can understand him and other rappers ) ..my wife who speaks English and prefers English speaking musicians of all kinds can't understand a word of almost all rap )..if not they are making a bushel to hide their own light beneath..and their message is thus communicated simply to the already converted..

Not to mention why do all Rappers think they have to make the same gestures and move the same way..it isn't dance if they all move the same way..it is then just like soldiers marching all the same way..they move like parts of the "machine that they rail against ..like "the man's" puppets..like the players in the racist minstrel shows of the late 1ate 1800's or 19th century ..it isn't done ironically ..

It's done unthinkingly ..playing the stereotypical "n" word movements like a Josephine Baker dance..only difference is they don't roll their eyes..but even the little kids think that to do rap you have to look and move and sound stereotypical "hard menacing b white folks idea of young black guy"..

Even in France rappers whether their background is ghetto or bourgois all move and speak /sing/rap the same as the US ones ..and even if they have never known other than a privileged life...

They only rap about how hard life on the streets is and conflict with the cops..

As for "gangsta" rap ..5 minutes in some of the worlds hot spots like Mogadishu or hard places like the north of my home country Ireland ..and they'd be screaming for their mamas to make the guy with the wire cutters and the paving slabs and hammers go away..

Like you said .."marketing" IMO..to dumb folks ..white and black.

MC channeled Rick James (super freak). No gansta rap there - more feel good rap.

so why is the "gestural" dance still the same or so similar as the gangsta "moves"..

Even friends of mine in Jamaica or what the French call "les Isles"..all begin the same "born in the USA ghetto moves" ..as soon as they begin rap..and suddenly it gets hard to understand them ..and I have no problems understanding all kinds of creole normally ..

Weird..

hmm I don't remember MC hammer having really horrible ghetto lyrics, I also got a good laugh out of watching him dance in those puffy pants hahaah. He was kind of the lighter side to rap........ then the mid late 90's came.

I can't stand the stuff.

Long Live Electro! :-)

"...but make the words damn intelligible to some one who didn't grow up within your society.."
-LG


Like the Beatles: "Yellow matter custard dripping from a dead dog's eye.... goo-goo-ga-joob"...

Or maybe you prefer Iron Butterfly: "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida"" (translation: in a garden of Eden).


Personally I can's stand most rap -- but I do like just about anything from like Eminem. (A master linguist -- even his stage name is fairly genius -- it's a homophone for his initials, "M 'n M", (for Marshal Mathers) ...and I'm old enough to have listened to James Marshal Hendrix while he was still alive, (but will admit at that time I failed to see his genius and thought his guitar playing was scratchy noise).

lexipixel, didn't know about the "in a gadda da vida" translation, thanks (guess you have it correct?)

But have to disagree with "scratchy noise" to me it was plain genius music!

I didn't say that I thought the lyrics were "nonsense" ..like the Beatles example you gave ( which btw..could be considered as a variety of "jazz scat" ) ..but unintelligible..and the Iron Butterfly exmple in that case is most apt ..most people couldn't make out what they were saying then ..most people have hard time making out what rappers are / have been saying ..

I agree with you totally however about Eminem ..:)

And I'm in complete agreement with henryO about Hendrix :)

Hey Leosghost, what do you think of the Kingsmen's version of Louie, Louie, one of the most popular, yet unintelligible songs of all time. And as we all know, the words were dirty. ;)

re: Hendrix "scratchy noise" comment note I used past tense -- Jimi was a genius and one of the most original and talented guitarists ever --- again "past tense" --- I was about 10 years old at the end of the '60s and at that time the majority of my listening was on a mono clock radio on my nightstand and scratchy 45s on a "record player", (until I grew up and bought a Quadrophonic 8-track player). FWIW, when I was a kid I used to think the Dead was scratchy noise too -- maybe a new needle on the record player would have accelerated my appreciation.
