RSS Readers: Bringing the World to Your Desktop

RSS Readers: Bringing the World to Your Desktop: "Tired of surfing? Want to hang up your board? Through the magic of RSS, now the internet can come to you. All you need is a good RSS newsreader.

If you're not clear on what RSS is, don't sweat it. It's simply an XML-based format used to syndicate articles from blogs, news content and other data. RSS turns the e-mail newsletter model on its head. Instead of having a publisher e-mail an update to you daily, weekly or hourly, they just have to create an XML file in a mostly standard format. Then you use an RSS reader to pick those XML files off the web, and translate them into easy to view content summaries. "

Looks good doesn't it!

Sounds of the world's animals

I found a funny website about the sounds of the world's animals.It shows how each language expresses the sounds made by different animals.
The onomatopoeia used for an animal is often almost the same in several languages which is interesting from the linguistic point of view.
Here is the address:

E-Books

R U bored with downloading free mp3 music (legally of course ...) ? So you can try to download free books on the Online Book Page. Over 20000 references !
I went to the raelain's website to see what's up whith their project of human cloning. If you want a quite "neutral and scientifical" explanation about the growing number of sects and their state of mind, I found a good book about it on the University of Calgary website. It surely requires some time to read it, but it's woth it. Notice that you can also find free books on the net!

Human Clone

Human Clone was not welcomed by most of the world because it seems to be not ethical or for different other reasons... RAELIANS announced that they made the first human clone so I tried to see what is the Raelians belief and goal of doing an act...
U can find out more on the official website:

Do you know where the thing you're typing on come from ?

Here is a website I found. It's not very attractive as it is not interactive but it is very interesting (it's my point of view). It is the story of the ENIAC, our computers' ancestor. I find it interesting to notice that the war has been an important actor in computer emergence.

Here is the site
