We tackle subjects high and low with an approach that's unabashedly intellectual but not dry or condescending. The blog is at the heart of the site, but we also publish essays, reporting, and other features. is made by bloggers for bloggers. All the sites are manually picked. All the links are daily selected by hand.

2leep mission is to connect all cool content on Internet and make it more accessible by mutual effort.


Google Wave. Huh. What Is It Good For?

Maybe you've heard about Google Wave. It's the hot new product from Google, the one that's going to change the world and replace e-mail and transform us all into cyborgs with the power to travel into the future and save mankind. Or something.

Google Wave is now in a limited beta test, being used by 100,000 people, by invitation only. It's apparently fantastic stuff, really super-impressive. There's just one teeny-tiny problem—nobody can explain what Wave is or how it works. Not even the people who created Google Wave seem able to really explain why anyone needs or wants it. Sure, some have tried, like Ars Technica. Google itself has posted this 80-minute video tutorial.

But see, if you need an 80-minute video to explain your product, well, that's a bit of a problem. Google says Wave is a tool that lets you "communicate and collaborate in real time." But what does that mean exactly? Because at one level, the idea of something that lets you "communicate and collaborate in real time" is not such a big deal. A chalkboard lets you do that, for example. So does a telephone. Heck, a pad of paper and a box of crayons can do that. - All you need to know about a website

Maurice Sendak interview on NOW with Bill Moyers | PBS

Maurice Sendak has spent the past fifty years bringing an extraordinary world of fantasy and imagination to life. His landmark work WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE established him as a visionary figure in children's literature and made an indelible imprint on children and adults, selling more than two million copies. But what are the artistic motivations driving Sendak, who says: "I never set out to write books for children"? Bill Moyers gives viewers a look into the private world of Maurice Sendak in an unexpectedly candid interview that reveals the surprisingly dark influences at play in his complex work. Shaped by immigrant parents and the tragedy of the Holocaust, Sendak provides frank insight into his complicated psyche and a rare window into the soul of an acclaimed artist.

From the New York Times Bestseller Lists



A searchketeer (pronounced just like The Three Musketeers or the Mickey Mouse Club Mouseketeers) is a search engine that is optimized for a specific topic.

A good way to compare a general search engine with a topic-specific searchketeer is to examine what happens when you search for lincoln using a general search engine. Try it. The general search engine is likely to return results relating to Lincoln-brand automobiles, President Abraham Lincoln, and the company Lincoln Electric. Why such varied results? Because the general search engine has no way of knowing whether you are searching for cars, presidents, or companies.

When you use searchkeeters, you get to choose which searchketeer best fits your search needs. Let's say that you are interested in President Abraham Lincoln, and that you choose the Presidents and Presidency (US) searchkeeter. Searching for lincoln in this searchketeer returns better results, because the searchketeer knows that you are interested in United States presidents, not cars or companies. is powered by technologies from two amazing companies: The New York Times (our favorite news source) and Google (our favorite search engine). Note that neither company endorses nor promotes We are very thankful to both for making available the technologies that make possible.
