Livescribe :: Never Miss A Word
The Pulse's primary power is its ability to record audio while you write. Later, if you tap a written word, the pen plays back the audio it recorded at that moment. (Or, rather, what it heard five seconds before you started writing, to compensate for your reaction time.

The Young Turks
The Turks, all under 40 and with an infectious zeal for lampooning the right-wing Establishment, are fun to watch and listen to… More than just entertaining.

(The Young Turks have) helped pioneer the rapidly developing field of online programming. - Matea Gold, Los Angeles Times
Part Howard Stern, Part Howard Dean… The Young Turks offer a host of innovative programs with a political edge. - Kathy Newman, Pittsburgh City Paper
Maybe (the Democrats) could tune in (to The Young Turks) for some ideas.

FriendFeed enables you to keep up-to-date on the web pages, photos, videos and music that your friends and family are sharing. It offers a unique way to discover and discuss information among friends.
Sign up for FriendFeed, invite some friends, and get a customized feed made up of the content that your friends shared — from news articles to family photos to interesting links and videos. FriendFeed automatically imports shared stuff from sites across the web, so if your friend favorites a video on YouTube, you get a link and a thumbnail of the video in your feed. And if your friend likes a news story on Digg, you get a link in your feed. FriendFeed makes all the sites you already use a little more social.
Friends May Be the Best Guide Through the Noise - New York Times
"The question from our standpoint is, how you find signal in the noise?" said Peter Fenton, a partner at Benchmark Capital, which recently invested in FriendFeed. "If you assume the volume of information continues to grow exponentially, it is going to keep getting harder and harder to figure out where you want to spend 30 minutes to two hours online."
That's where the sites like FriendFeed, Iminta, Plaxo, Readr, Mugshot and others try to harness the wisdom of friends. They let their users choose whose feeds they want to follow — the relationship does not have to be reciprocal — and allow them to restrict their own feeds only to people with whom they feel comfortable.

TODAY'S ZAMAN - News from Turkey
I welcome all our readers across the world who are keenly interested in developments in Turkey and its immediate geographic vicinity. The editorial staff and I are well aware of the fact that this paper, in both its print and Web editions, is being closely followed by a great number of people all over the world on a daily basis. The reason is simple yet also complex: Turkey stands at the world's geographic and political crossroads. In recent years it has become one of the most closely followed and frequently discussed countries.
Turkey is increasingly becoming involved in world affairs, more than ever before, thanks to growing relations with the European Union, globalization, intercultural interactions and increasing economic and political interdependency among countries.
Global conflicts and tensions are growing and spreading, making communication among different societies, cultures, religions and languages necessary. Granted that Turkey is not immune to this process, we felt the need to establish a new mass media source that ensures credible news, objective analysis and trustworthy information for those interested in the country's social, economic, cultural and political development.
Today's Zaman, with an open-minded and visionary perspective, was born out of this necessity as an English-only newspaper in 2007. Within a year of its launch, Today's Zaman became the most-circulating English-language newspaper in Turkey, scoring substantial distance from its closest competitor. Its excellence was also confirmed by the presentation of 21 awards in the Society for News Design's (SND) annual "The Best of Newspaper Design Creative Competition." Today's Zaman won an "Award of Excellence" in the contest in 2008, following closely some of the world's most prestigious newspapers, such as the New York Times and the Guardian.
