LINKS: INTERESTING BITS
Without meaning to imply that the rest of this page isn't interesting, these links lead to sites
that amuse, amaze, or in other ways merit a look. Feel free to make nominations for this category.
Googlism advertises its ability to "find out what Google thinks of you, your friends, or anything" - but its the accidental poetry of some of its responses that makes this worth a look.
60 Sites in 60 Minutes - a list of the 60 web sites recommended by Robert Ambrogi at this year's ABA Techshow
FundRace.org - from the folks at Eyebeam R&D, this site offers a view of federal campaign contributions through geographical mapping. Find out who in your neighborhood (by ZIP code) is giving to whose campaign, or try the "Money Maps" to view a color-coded display.
Edge - The World Question Center - deep questions, deeper insights (thanks to Jeff Turner for suggesting this link)
Vivisimo - a "clustering" search engine - it groups the results of your query, revealing patterns and additional search leads.
Mooter - another "clustering" engine, this one from a land down under.
Froogle - now out in beta form, the web shopping engine from the folks at Google - check the "about" for background and the caveat emptor.
Google Zeitgeist - Google mavens will enjoy this. View the waxing and waning of the most popular current Google searches through this window on one of the web's most highly trafficked search engines.
A Century of Lawmaking for A New Nation - Covering the period 1774-1873, this Library of Congress web site opens a window in time through use of the documents of the Continental Congress and the newly established federal government.
The Wayback Machine - Fasten your seatbelts and journey through cyber-time. The Internet Archive, working with Alexa, will transport you back in time (or at least as far back as 1996) to view web sites as they were. "Gee, Mr. Peabody, did Yahoo really look like that?"
