Fav5

My pick of the week's top 5 3 items of interest (it's a slow week, and I'm ready to go home):
  1. The first Internet census since 1982 was just completed.

  2. Researchers at Southampton University have developed a new search engine for images which relies on the content of the image rather than words appearing near it on a web page.

  3. Today's my birthday. Yes, Kirk Cameron, Pavarotti and me were all born on Oct 12. If you're looking for a good gift to send me, I suggest one of these $100 laptops (that actually cost $200). Even better would be Halo 3. wink I'm actually playing Halo 3 for the first time Monday night with some students... should be a lot of fun.
