  • Project Cartoon (via TNH)- Classic product development cartoon (the one with the tree) has been … Web 2.0-ified? Strange.
  • The Secret Life of Machines (via Faisal) – How things work!
  • LibraryThing Unsuggestor (via SIMS fun list) – "It analyzes the seven million books LibraryThing members have
    recorded as owned or read, and comes back with books least likely to share a library with the book
    you suggest."
    I am apparently unlikely to read Confessions of a Shopaholic (true), Desiring God (true), and Terry Pratchett books (not true).
  • zipdecode (via SIMS fun list) – Crazy awesome zip code visualization.
  • Lectures from Marti Hearst’s Search classes – Sergey Brin! Dan Rose! Hal Varian! Geoffrey Nunberg!
  • Map (via SIMS fun list) – Ever wondered how Google gets those cool icons onto their maps? The secret is plywood!
