The Is It Old website allows you to quickly check if the really cool link you're about to send to your friends is fresh or really stale. Reportedly, con.ca is older than last year's meatloaf.
From the article on Mashable:
Is It Old? uses open API to analyze how many times a link has been posted on Twitter and how far back it was first shared. The service then creates a hidden numbered value and spits out a worded conversion on a scale of "Dead" to "Mad Fresh!" (See gallery below).
"Internet moves at the speed of light -- what is old by Internet standards is very different to what's old in the real world," Is It Old? co-creator Per Hansson told Mashable. "If a hilarious YouTube video is a week old, chances are that a lot of your friends have already seen it."
