There’s a new human-powered search directory in cyberspace, Mahalo. If it’s as good as the first page is attractive it’ll do well. Like all true directories, however, the amount of information it can deliver is limited, though what there is is usually of high quality.

More from Second Life – Sweden has opened an embassy there. I haven’t had a chance to visit yet (damn this firewall) but it looks like fun and I plan to travel there when I get home this evening.

Do you want to get into podcasting but aren’t sure if you have the necessary software? Most people I’ve spoken with are using Audacity but here is a possible alternative, PodcastPeople. It advertises itself thus: a simple web-based service that allows individuals to create audio and video episodes, write blog posts, and interact with their audience. There’s no software to download and nothing to install.
