The mighty web

Tonight SB was digging through some boxes, trying to throw more stuff away. He held up these old computer disks, proclaiming, “Do you know what these are?” Ta da! “Netscape 1.1 install discs.” Oh those were the times of wonder, when every new browser version meant something. Netscape changed my life.

I can’t say that any of the following links are life changing, but they did make me stop and remember that this here web thing is pretty awesome.

Netvibes – I read about it in Wired and thought I’d give this web 2.0 thing another chance. I love this thing, it has made life so much easier. On one page I can have all my blog feeds, my e-mail and even my local weather report and some flickr photo eye candy.

Julia Sweeney – I found her blog through Evany at Extended Cake Mix. Julia’s entries make me ponder those big questions about God and mortality and life, things I used to devote a lot more time to considering.

Amazon Associate – Inspired by Leah’s post today on becoming an Amazon Associate, I went and signed-up. Now if any reader clicks on a link to amazon from one of my book reviews and then buys something I will make up to 8.5% on each sale. I figure between my fiance and my mom I can make around $3/year. Private island ownership here I come.

Your own Pollock – Sent to me by my sister, this fun little site lets you drag your mouse around, creating your own modern masterpiece, no drawing skills needed.
