I just stated using Omniweb 5.5 yesterday.
is an online speed reading application that I came across a few weeks ago. It is a really neat flash application that you paste some text into and the will scroll the words across the screen at whatever rate you set. I have always been frustrated by how slowly I read but I was pleasantly surprised by how fast I could comfortably cruise through text in this format (about 600wpm!). I have no idea if this is comparatively fast, but it seemed like quite a feat for me.
Side Note: Anybody looking for a good speed-reading course I have heard good things about Photoreading. It’s pricey, but you get a discount throught the site that I have linked to.
Beginning next Monday I will be publishing a weekly article here about my favorite stuff.

I hope that it will be something useful to the readers here can find useful. Please don’t hesitate to comment or email me with suggestions and/or feedback.

Oh, and BTW, colors of the flickr logo are BLUE:#0063dc and PINK:#ff0084 if you ever need such things.
I was playing around a while ago with the idea of purchasing one of those DNA posters; I have always thought they were really cool looking.

It does this by evaluating the ammount of images and text on the pages and pumping it through some algorithm. Really beautiful, go check it out. Here is what mine looks like.
