is a tasteful, politically right-on and truly curatorial take on aggregating web content. Careful, combined with an MF habit, this is going to eat up a lot
of hours. Although the site is MetaFilter-inspired, all links are the fruit of one intrepid reader whose work, it must be admitted, sometimes grinds to a halt for up to a week at a time.

Catering to skinflints who can't be bothered to check multiple sites for the best fares, travel aggregator sites like Mobissimo
, or Sidestep
allow you to search Expedia
, and Travelocity
with a single query, as well as bargain airlines like JetBlue
, which aren't covered by the big three. (note: Sidestep requires a download, and only works on Windows; the others are all just regular websites.) But maybe you'd be best off just heading straight to an obscure Belgian travel site

A daily update of new reports from government agencies, ngo's, think tanks, and other groups. A whole lot of grist for the mill.
