favorite virtual things

Rather than write, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite things found in the electronic world of late.

First, the VSL http://www.veryshortlist.com/home/ — it’s random goodness which basically just emails you something cool you can find on-line (article links, book reviews, web sites, etc.). No rhyme or reason behind the emails, but the homepage does have things broken up a bit. Today’s very short list was the GeoEye’s satellite photography site (please check it out when you want real shock and awe).

Second, the LOSTpedia http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page is a great place to go if you have an ever increasing obsession and frustration with the ABC series LOST. Shelby turned me on to it and also pointed out some shortcomings (which clearly she needs to go and add since I think it’s interactive).

And third should be no surprise, the revamped White House site still seems to be morphing from time to time, but since the news is all grim and nagging — it’s nice to see the sunny spin that can emit from THE administration. http://www.whitehouse.gov/

So now you know what I do with my precious work time. Well, that and the king of all addictions and therefore should be mentioned with the strong warning to NOT become a victim http://lexulous.com/ which is the best way to play a wordy board game online.

Oh, and one other bit of beauty — for stunning photos of the Oscar acting nominees, find the New York Times photos of them here . Gorgeous portraits by Paolo Pelligrin. Thank you so much Lori for that link.
