An interesting site from the American Society for Engineering Education. Quoting from the site:
The engineer has been, and is, a maker of history.
--James Kip Finch (1960)
Many fascinating people have been engineers or have an engineering background. As the list below shows, engineers are not just researchers, designers, and inventors. They are also artists, Super Bowl winners, astronauts, Olympians, heads of state, and even Academy Award recipients!"
What is also interesting to me is that an American site spells famous with a "u"

A Civil War Soldier in the Wild Cat Regiment: Selections from the Tilton C. Reynolds Papers
Since watching Ken Burn's PBS series on the American civil war, I find I am more interested in this than before. This site has a lot of very interesting features and items.
Quoting from the site:
A Civil War Soldier in the Wild Cat Regiment: Selections from the Tilton C. Reynolds Papers documents the Civil War experience of Captain Tilton C. Reynolds, a member of the 105th Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers. Comprising 164 library items, or 359 digital images, this online presentation includes correspondence, photographs, and other materials dating between 1861 and 1865. The letters feature details of the regiment's movements, accounts of military engagements, and descriptions of the daily life of soldiers and their views of the war. Forty-six of the letters are also made available in transcription.

A white paper from Vircom (specialize in the development of advanced Internet Infrastructure server solutions) you can download from their site.

Why Spammers Spam is an incredible insight into the american spammer scene. It sheds some light on the spammers' motivations, techniques and resources as well as their perception on the effects their activities have on individual, ISP and corporate users."

This is a really interesting concept in blogging. Anyone you choose can upload photos to your photo site with the password you give them. All they have to do is send them in an email to an address set in the system. It seems to be aimed at people with camera cell phones, however, I set one up for sharing hockey photos (just call me "Hockey Mom") with other parents on the team. http://carolyne.buzznet.com
Thanks to Steven Cohen for mentioning this site in his blog http://www.librarystuff.net/
And it is Canadian!
I am going to do this publically now. I have been playing with the idea of blogging for a while but only privately.
To those who read this please send your comments and ideas to me.
