The Wisbit Web App
When you realize the sad, beautiful fact about our inability to absorb even a fraction of the ever increasing corpus of wisdom in our world, and when you hear google’s Eric Schmidt talking about the incredible rate at which data is produced, you’re left wondering how will you ever learn the gist of everything around you.
With the Wisbit web app, you need wonder no more. This application lets you browse the best passages (or wisbits, for wisdom-tidbits) of several books in the order they are deemed important by the crowds. You can have fun “mashing” wisbits to score the passages against one another and learn something new along the way, or jump right into reading wisbits based on their ranking.Read More
Not too long ago, I purchased a tablet PC to bring one of my ideas to fruition (among other reasons). The idea was to offer tutoring services online whereby the tutee would be able to view my screen and see my writings (on the tablet PC). This makes the entire process so much more convenient for both the tutor (yours truly) and the tutee, as no one has to move to meet the other.

Best of all, the service is free (where available, i.e. when I have the time)!Read More
The Motivational Thermometer
I always loved to track the hours I put into a certain project. I would usually do this either on a piece a paper (before acquiring an iPod), or using an application on my smartphone/iPod. However, I started noticing that I spent more and more time on my computer, and as my love for Windows 7 grew, I decided to write this lightweight sidebar gadget. Check the demo video to learn more about it, or simply head to the Windows Live Gallery to download it now.
