Google and Yahoo should establish their own countries.

Google and Yahoo are visited everyday by gigantic amount of users and in the times of always rising inflation, taxes and decreasing level of freedom it could be a good alternative to classic countries like U.S.A.

Imagine you can login to Google/Yahoo application like GMail or Yahoo pipes and :

- check the amount of your Google Dollars or Yahoo Dollars which are inflation proof
- pay your head tax, which would be the only tax
- pay other Google and Yahoo citizens for goods they're selling you (without any additional tax)
- lend other Google and Yahoo citizens money

ask your employees to pay you in google dollars

and be FREE, or if there is something you don't like in your virtual country - you could always change it to another one.

Final word in webforum solutions and better than Google Groups ?

Aren't you tired of using many different web-forums ? You're probably using different forum to talk about your car, music that you're listening to, movies, programming language, operating system, tv shows etc.

Even if you've found a forum that you're keen on, with a fine community. What if you've changed your car, favourite programming language, operating system etc ? could be the panacea for that. It is using tags in the very same way as is using tags for categorizing the links - at you're using tags to categorize the topic you want to talk about !

examples :

ubuntu forum

ubuntu sysadmins forum

ubuntu games forum

ubuntu arcade games forum

all of them can be quickly accessed just by changing the tags set.

Take a look :) it seems that the has just started, so not many entries and users there.

Supreme Court of the Republic of Poland decided that every web page should be treated as a newspaper.

On 26th of July Polish Supreme Court stated that every web page should be treated as a newspaper.

What you should include in the registration form ?
- newspaper title and the actual address
- personal information of executive editor and his actual address
- name of the publisher, with the actual address.
- about 12 USD fee.

Owner of not registered web page puts himself on risk of paying the fine, or even going to jail.

It's not a joke. It's a sad truth.

Tsai Ming-liang's Wayward Cloud.

Truly awesome movie. Some say that it's so far the most radical film of the Taiwanese director, but I'm certain that this attribute, very often intolerable by sensible viewers, is absolved because of the whole movie's attitude to a matter that is being talked over.

Tsai Ming-liang is a known author of masterpieces that doubt in human relations. This is one is similar in that case too. Nevertheless that it contains extremely intelligent and funny scenes, it forces viewer to reflect about condition of experiencing relationships nowadays.
