Interesting sites from the past week

Who doesn’t need more sites for maps.  This one looks good on a global level.  It’s called ReliefWeb and says it serves the humanitarian community.  When there’s a big world disaster, like a tsunami or earthquake, floods, here’s your sign.

Timelines are valuable for us, so I’ve set up a Timelines category.  Whenever I stumble over a timeline source, I’ll blog it and categorize it under Timelines, so we can build up some good sources.  This first one deals with a timeline of recent world school shootings from 1996 to the present April 2007.

New postal rates, effective May 12.

Blinkx….over 7 million hours of video and it’s searchable.  Claims it’s the world’s largest video search engine. Find favorite TV episodes to watch on your computer; look up that latest video gaf by a politician or celebrity.
