BigBlog and World Buddy
After visiting Jon Hedley's site (the guy that did Afterslash, highlighted in my prior post), I found a couple other sites he built which are also extremely useful and will be new additions to my bookmark list:
BigBlog summarizes a variety of news articles under a lot of different categories that interest me (and probably you too).
World Buddy helps you find the current time and weather information for just about any place in the world.
Very cool. Ad-free. How refreshing.
