Web Sites of Interest
Listed below are a number of web sites that I regularly read and enjoy. Got an interesting one? Send it along!
- Piled Higher and Deeper - "Piled Higher and Deeper" (PhD) is the comic strip about life (or the lack thereof) in academia
- Indexed Blog - A math-based way of making fun of some things and understanding others
- StockXChng - Have a need for free stock photography for projects, presentations, or web sites? This is the place to go.
- Slashdot - Slashdot is the definitive community-based web site to stay up on tech news (and other issues). Read it often!
- Webware - Interested in web applications? This site from CNET.com stays current on all of the newest web sites (mostly Web 2.0) that extend the software platform from the desktop to web.
- Soundsnap - Soundsnap is a free online sound library and community for sound designers and producers. People can upload sounds and share them with the world.
- Zamzar - I discovered this site for converting files from any format to any format. (Well, not any format, but it seems like it.) I did have some problems with PDF to DOC, but other conversions were flawless. Check them out.
This is just a small selection of sites that I think you should check out. Periodically I'll add more.
