Peekaboom I know... I've posted already today.. but this is just too cool. Bascially, help a coupla algorithims learn hor to recognize things by "sight." You switch back and forth with a player a la a visual 25,000 Pyramid... and you reveal the portion of the picture that the site wants your partner to guess... i.e. Picture of a park... site wants "tree" so you reveal a tree. The only interaction is a noun/verb, related noun verb hint, and a hot or cold... This is just incredible..! Via BoingBoing...

20 Mishaps That Might Have Started Accidental Nuclear War - 9 of them being from the Cuban Missle Crisis. Note that these are false alarms and do not include such frighteners as the Arkhipov incident, and are only the known ones, so we don't really know how many times we've been on the brink for other, perhaps as yet undisclosed events. more inside
Curious George... wifi I'm thinkin of putting in free wi-fi for my rental units... Just wondering if it's worth the $1,000 (labor included) to do.... more inside
The Dining Room is sort of an interactive flash puzzle horror story. Not very complicated (try clicking on things multiple times), but creepy and atmospheric, with nice sound effects. Turn off all the lights in your room before you start to make it really scary! more inside
