INTERNALMEMOS.COM - Internet's largest collection of corporate memos and internal communication
The maker of F#@&edcompany.com, Philip J. Kaplan, has done it again with this little uncut diamond. All you Enron-WorldCom-Adelphia employee wannabe's, here is your chance to air your company's dirty laundry. You know those company-wide emails (memos for the still papered offices), like one DHL employees received days after one of their planes crashed telling everyone that the whole company is moving from San Francisco to Ft. Lauderdale and if you go too, you still have a job and if you don't go, have a nice life. This site is the place getting a lot of attention where you can post and read these types of memos and much more. Let the laundry-cleaning begin!

Here's one for a Friday. Some guy who knows his stuff has taken his imagination and ran with it. He make these creatures and allows you to interact with them. Based on some rules the creatures take on their own personality, responding to your mouse. Hmmm...

Operation TIPS
From the website: "Operation TIPS - the Terrorism Information and Prevention System - will be a nationwide program giving millions of American truckers, letter carriers, train conductors, ship captains, utility employees, and others a formal way to report suspicious terrorist activity. Operation TIPS, a project of the U.S. Department of Justice, will begin as a pilot program in 10 cities that will be selected."

You can help your country fight terrorism and apply. The pilot stage will begin August 2006 and involve 1 million Americans in 10 cities across the US. Right now they are targeting workers that have a high exposure to the general public.

Boy has it been a while...
Okay, as you can see from the post just after this, it has been quite some time since I have updated this page. I have been getting a massive amount of hits from very random places across the world. I believe the highest count I saw was about 250 in a day. Not too bad! So, somewhere I have gotten up the mojo to start updating this page again. I am hoping to soon have all the sites I have listed here categorized. Currently they seem lost in the archives to everyone who doesn't have the finger endurance to click through all the archive links... like myself. Also keep an eye out for a search box.

Gooogle.com
Yes it is supposed to have three O's. Just came across it and haven't figured out what it's significance is. It looks to be a mirror of Google.com but without the PageRank advertising system. It would also make sense if it runs faster as their servers would have less of a load. I will make an update if I find anymore out.

The Internet Archive: Building an 'Internet Library' -THIS IS COOL!!
"The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) public nonprofit that was founded to build an 'Internet library,' with the purpose of offering free and permanent access to historical digital collections for researchers, historians, and scholars." As this quote from their website explains, it crawls the web and periodically caches the html files making them viewable for -hopefully- ever. Check out what they have on JOE-BALL.com from back in the day.

ROTTEN TOMATOES: Movie Reviews & Previews
Highlighted in many leading publications and periodicals, Rotten Tomatoes takes a unique approach to movie reviews. They traded in those outdated star ratings and thumb-flips, and chose to rate movies on how fresh of a tomato it is. I recommend taking a look at his site before going out to shell out your 10 bucks to go to a theater or renting a video that needs to be back by noon the next day before it is late.

Google Catalog Search
A search engine, Google that is, that searches their vast database of OCRed catalogs. Everything from Paperweights to those good-old Velcro Shoes. I thinks it is ideas with this kind of caliber that will bring the internet economy back to life. Once again Google outdoes themselves.
