All these Yahoo Directory listings will be lost, like tears in the rain

Search Engine Land (December 27, 2014): "The Yahoo Directory, the core part of how Yahoo itself began in 1994, officially closed today, five days ahead of when Yahoo had said the end would come." The Internet Archive save of Yahoo for October 1996. [more inside]

notice that little 'f' (or 't') everywhere?

How (crowd) curation is making a comeback in search and how Facebook is using it to "remake whole industries."

The toughest job you'll ever blog.

Since its inception in 1961, over 190,000 volunteers have served overseas with the US Peace Corps. In 2007, the Peace Corps had over 8,000 volunteers serving in 74 countries (2007 annual report (PDF)). Some volunteers have taken to blogging their activities and experiences. Peace Corps Journals maintains a directory of most of them, organized by region and nation. Every nation's page has Wikipedia, CIA Factbook, PC proper, PC staff listings and PC Wiki links; link(s) to site(s) pertaining to RPCVs that served in that nation (if any); and some even link to the nation's informative Peace Corps-published Welcome Book (PDF). Below those elements are the links to the various blogs. While you're perusing the journals, also check out flickr's Peace Corps photo pool

DMOZ Payola?

DMOZ Editor(s) seeking extortion for continued inclusion is putting further smudge on the "volunteer" directory. Seems lots of folks have had their hands out over inclusion in the DMOZ, so why hasn't a business been built out of it? Is Best of the Web positioning itself as Google Bait?

The Portable Freeware Collection

The Portable Freeware Collection tracks free Windows software that can be launched from a USB flash drive with no installation. It advises on how to prepare and launch the software (usually as simple as saving and double clicking an exe file), and if/where settings are written to the computer. I'm particularly keen to get to grips with the Pimmy email, newsgroup and RSS client; the KM@ web browser (portable versions of Firefox and Opera are also available); and organizational joygasm NeoMem.

The Glossarist is "a searchable directory of glossaries and topical dictionaries." Obvious enough. Topic areas are arranged in a Yahoo-like structure.
Now, go find out what all those obscure technical terms you've been wondering about mean.

If you miss Weblogs.Com's capability to keep a list of your favourite weblogs, you might want to try Yaysoft Weblog Directory (YayDir). It allows you to create weblog reading and favourite lists and keep track of their updates. The directory is searchable, which makes setting up reading and favourite lists a breeze. It currently tracks only weblogs that ping Weblogs.Com but I read here that they're going to have their own crawler soon. Neato!
