The Living Room Candidate

When televisions started to fill every home in America, the politicians realized it was an excellent way to get their campaign messages out and to advertise to the voters. Since the 1950s, television has dramatically changed the way campaigns are advertised. This site is all about the presidential campaigns that aired on television. The timeline on the site starts in 1952 and ends in… Continue reading

Wanna Spell?

Friday, July 14th, 2006

Wanna Spell?

This site reminds me of those magnetic letters that parents buy for their children and put on the refrigerator so the kids can spend countless hours arranging and rearranging the letters into words. It would make a great way for kids to practice spelling, that’s for sure. But, even as an adult, I really enjoyed this site.

Start your trip by selecting the language of your choice… Continue reading

The CyberBass Project is here to help you learn your part… Continue reading

Rijksmuseum

Friday, June 30th, 2006

Rijksmuseum

This has to be the most amazing online museum that I’ve ever seen. And even better, it was a bit of a click and discover journey as I tried to figure out how it all worked. Each click led to a new bit of understanding of the site’s layout and I was able to learn a little bit more about art as I went. So, if you’re up… Continue reading

Arts & Letters Daily

Friday, June 30th, 2006

Arts & Letters Daily

Leonardo3 – The Office Web Site

Friday, June 30th, 2006

Leonardo3 – The Official Web Site

Welcome to the official Web site for Leonardo da Vinci. I thought with the large splash of success that Dan Brown’s “The da Vinci Code” has made in the media lately, it would be interesting to explore da Vinci himself.

Traffic Reports and Alerts

Traffic Reports and Alerts

Okay, so we’ve covered gas prices until we were blue in the face, so let’s move on to traffic. The only problem I have with this site is that it is highly metropolitan based. Go ahead and register (it’s free!) with as much or as little information as you want, and confirm. Then you can start to set up your custom drives, a personalized map… Continue reading

The Gorilla Foundation

Friday, June 23rd, 2006

I remember the effect that Dian Fossey’s story had on me as a child. How she valiantly tried to save the gorillas she was studying. I can still remember seeing Gorillas in the Mist for the first time. I think that memory is what has me so interested in this site. The Gorilla Foundation is trying to start a Gorilla Preserve on Maui, Hawaii that will allow them to fully… Continue reading

Sky.fm

Okay this is an awesome radio site, but to start with, you need to learn how you can tune in. Go to the Help tab and choose How to Listen from the drop down menu. This will explain in detail what you need to listen to it and how to set it up. Once you’ve gotten that sorted out, go to the Listen Now tab.
