Another Google 20% project rears its head. Moderator could help a group of people (say, public at a school board meeting) select the best questions to present. A nifty idea, and an interesting expression of faith in the wisdom of crowds. Still, I wonder how many people at the school board meeting have a computer, and of those that do, who has an internet connection?

Quarkbase looks like a good way to do a whois plus extras.

Need a calendar for planning purposes? Consider basing it on the compact calendar template David Seah created. This looks like a great way to fit a year onto a page, with plenty of room to describe events.

Something to look at the next time I need a group to make a decision: Zapproved. This is a free net facilitated kind of voting.

Nathaniel and I had fun geocaching a few weeks back on a field trip to Fort Snelling State Park. Mary’s new iPhone made for a great geocaching tool.

FFR: Google Calendar Syncing

Google announces that it can now sync with Apple’s iCal, without any third party software. I’ll have to look into this more closely and see if it may solve Mary’s frustrations with our half-adoption of Google Calendar. (Thanks, lifehacker.)
