Useful list - just what it says on the box!

Flickr Spy

One of the new sites we call "Mashups" - this one scans Flickr for new images being uploaded. It's pretty fast and effective, especially if the public are uploading pictures on breaking news, eye-witness reports, etc. Scanning the list could be rather addicting for picture lovers and the site will probably be most effective if you can load it into a browser sidebar.

US site dedicated to the issue of medical marjuana froma non-partisan perspective. Full of links to information both pro and con.

Anyone who is interested in US politics and the shape of the next presidential race will love this site. As candidates increasingly use online methods for boosting their profile, this portal monitors the whole process, even watching how many people sign up as "friends" in places like MySpace. Genius programming and non-partisan - just the facts and trends.
