8 New and Unusual Sites

Posted by Paula on March 5, 2008

  • The first interesting site I want to talk about is PrimeTime Rewind. A few drawbacks is that it only covers the big networks, plus USA, but you can catch the latest episodes of your favorites, whether it’s Jericho, Lost, Grey’s Anatomy, or even Family Guy!
  • Predictify is a fun site where you can earn a few bucks. You can submit questions, or just predict the answers to others’ questions on politics, sports, even earthquakes!
  • Another aggregator for your many social streams is Second Brain. This is one I like the name of… We all know how difficult it is to keep up with all that you find on the ‘net, so what could be better than looking at your ‘Second Brain’?
  • Next is the latest in voting for the internet: jaanix. If you vote up, it is called a jaa, if you vote down, it is called a nix. Not completely sure of this one yet…
  • Does Mahalo leave you wanting something a bit more? Try out Stumpedia! Rather than being told that your recommended link isn’t good enough, at Stumpedia you are allowed to enter your recommended link and then other users vote on your submission. Of course, I can imagine that does leave ways for the spammers to still have their say, but we can wish, can’t we?
  • For those who may want to stick with the comfort of the traditional forum, there is now a way to find what you were really looking for! Twing is a search engine of forums. I just did a brief search to check out how good this site might really be, I am amazed at the number of different forums it searches. If you are a big forum user, this is definitely for you!
  • Slashdoc is a place for all of those old research papers and other files left on your computer that you are unable to delete permanently. Upload your file to Slashdoc so that others may benefit from your sleepless nights banging away on the keyboard just to get the required 10,000 words.
  • College women are a special breed. It is a time in a young woman’s life that she needs to make some big decisions and sometimes a girl may not know just where to turn for the best advice. Young women with a .edu email address are now able to sign up at Chick Speak to discuss everything it means to be a woman in college today!

  1. jaanix is not about voting, it is about tuning your view of the world. Have you tried the sliders on the right?

  2. Yes, I did try the sliders, I’m sorry…. Just don’t quite get it, but I will certainly try again! 🙂

  3. u keep finding the most interesting sites, and sadly… i feel the need to join most, lol

  4. Thank for the mention about SecondBrain. We’ve added several new services and interface improvements since this post.
