Google Base is up!
Check it out - Google Base is finally up. This is Google's publically available (and publically maintained!) open database of everything. A a repository of structured data that everyone can add to.

Flock - A new web browser
Flock is an interesting web browser that has spun off from Mozilla FireFox. The folks at have extended the FireFox open source code to include cool features like: Favorites (=bookmarks) that are hosted on a central web server, so they can be accessed from anywhere on the net. They can also be tagged. The history of pages that you visited is searchable (at last!) Embedded blogging features that include posting to Flickr and easy aggregation of news feeds. Available for Windows, Mac and ......
