The Rosetta Project

This mammoth linguistic project seeks to survey and archive 1,000 languages for posterity. Why? Because 50 to 90 percent of today's spoken languages aren't expected to last another 100 years. And here's the exceptionally cool part -- once they've gathered enough material (glossaries, grammatical usage, alphabets, parallel translations, etc), they're going to "micro-etch" it onto a nickel disk that will have a 2,000-year life expectancy! In other words, they're creating a 21st-century Rosetta stone. They're embracing an "open contribution" policy similar to the Oxford English Dictionary, so you're encouraged to contribute. This week's languages of interest include Igo, Ainu, Afrikaans, Paiwan, Old Norse, Meitei, and Turoyo. -- Yahoo review

'The Spook

Is this fully downloadable magazine a glimpse into the future of publishing?

And don't think of "The Spook" as another third-rate web zine -- it's a real magazine just like the ones at the newsstand. It even comes with an online instruction manual. Just think -- no more paper cuts or annoying subscription cards. -- Yahoo review

Idea Line

Arranged in a "fan of luminous threads," the Idea Line presents a timeline of artworks in which each thread corresponds to a type of artwork or technology. The line's brightness indicates the number of artworks in that year. The array of artworks and technology is impressive -- minimalism, abstraction, animation, video, Java, and many more -- but our favorite aspect of this clever site is watching the lines ebb and flow as the mouse is moved over them. When you see something that piques your interest, you're just one click away from immersing yourself in it. -- Yahoo review
