  1. Global/universal short-links for your Amazon content @ BookLinker

    I’ve often thought this would be a good idea, but hadn’t looked to see who did it. (One URL for a book, which redirects user to their country’s Amazon.) I find it odd Amazon doesn’t do it. Or have a single international page for a book.

  2. Olympic Races, in Your Neighborhood - The New York Times

    Very nicely-done (couldn’t be simpler) thing showing you how long and fast races are from your address. A bit like BERG’s old How Big Really.

    I’m increasingly tempted to change my sites into flat HTML with dashes of perl/php for “dynamic” bits. At least I’d remember how they work.

    I’m an experienced internet professional and I can’t remember how to get an image file on to one of my own websites AMA.
