  • Gnomedex 9.0 – “The Technology Conference of Inspiration and Influence: Register Now!” – I did!
  • The Market Ticker: TARP Part Deux? Do It Right Or Don’t Do It – “The problem we face today and have since the summer of 2007 when the bubble burst is that Washington DC, heavily-influenced by the bribery of campaign contributions and lobbying from those on Wall Street and elsewhere in the very system that led to the creation of this excess credit have done their level best to convince a bunch of Representatives, Senators, and the White House that the math can be cheated, because to admit the truth of the mathematics means that those very people are the ones who will suffer most.
  • WWW SQL Designer – “Hi and welcome to WWW SQL Designer! This tool allows you to draw and create database schemas (E-R diagrams) directly in browser, without the need for any external programs (flash). You only need JavaScript enabled. The Designer works perfectly in Mozillas (Firefox, Seamonkey), Internet Explorers (6, 7, 8), Safari and Operas. Konqueror works, but the experience is limited. ” – Check out the amazing demo.
  • Autodesk Draw – “Project Draw is a new feature-rich web-based vector drawing application built by the Labs team. Use it to create simple floor plans, electronic-circuit diagrams, network diagrams, user interface mock-ups, and more. Save your work in a variety of formats on our server or yours. No plug-ins or downloads required – if you have a JavaScript-enabled Internet Explorer or Firefox browser, you’re good to go.” – Another amazing demo.
  • Cisco Pulse – “See how your online behavior affects the networks you use. This application is designed to show you the types of traffic that flow to and from your computer and provides network usage trends for all global users of this application. You can see your usage across three categories.
  • SS Galaxy: Queen of the Sagitarrean Sea – “Welcome aboard the SS Galaxy, the only full size, full scaled, and full featured virtual cruise ship in Second Life.
