Earn a Bit of Money

If you like online communities or participating in interesting discussions, well then this is the site for you :) Not only you'll get to be a part of a large community but you'll also get paid for giving advice, for asking others anything you'd like to know or simply for stating your opinion on things. Yes it's that simple. And you can also make referrals and gain 25% of their winnings.

Here's what they have to say about themselves:

We've heard reports of many myLot users who spend most of the waking hours of any given day enjoying myLot.

"Nothing can be that interesting?" you might ask.

Well, then you've probably never experienced a place like myLot.

It can be addicting enough to kill days on end, but also functional and useful enough for the millions of internet users who only have a few precious moments in their busy days for "online time."

Masking a Tree Photoshop Tutorial

This tutorial will demonstrate how to extract a clean mask from a photo of a tree set against a blue sky, using channels and levels, and then export the final result as a transparent .png.

Pretty interesting, right? After all a tree is a pretty difficult thing to mask because of all these branches :)

Love Land

There's a persistent prejudice against the Japanese, the Koreans and other Asians -- that they're prudish and repressed. But go to "Love Land" on Cheju Island in South Korea and you'll start to question that cliché.

Learn How To Draw

The Drawing Coach site has a bunch of step-by-step lessons in drawing, starting with simpler things such as the blue kitty above and getting to more complicated ones such as portraits. It also has a bunch of tips and tricks and lessons in perspective drawing.
So, if you want to discover a new hobby or to polish the drawing skills you already have, check out this site :)

A New Form Of Graffitti :)

My guess is that Ulrika Erdes thought the bus chairs and train chairs she ran across in her trips were too dull so she set to cheering them up :) How? By embroidering small patterns or words such as "hello" or "hug". And thus public embroidery was born.

The Ancestor of the iPod :P

Some time in decades past (I'm guessing the early to mid-1970s), an enterprising inventor came up with Mister Disc, the "personal portable phono system." Considering that I, a major audio geek, had never heard of Mister Disc until 2006, I can only assume that it never caught on with the public. That's not hard to understand. After all, who wanted to haul an armload of LPs or 45s with them wherever they went?

An interesting device I never knew existed :)

A Good Reason To Use Windows Live Messenger :)

i’m is a new initiative from Windows Live™ Messenger. Every time you start a conversation using i’m, Microsoft shares a portion of the program's advertising revenue with some of the world's most effective organizations dedicated to social causes. We've set no cap on the amount we'll donate to each organization. The sky's the limit. There's no charge, so join now and put our money where your mouth is.

i’m is about making a difference. Not in a huge expensive way, not in a time-consuming way. But in a simple, effective way.

I am not a huge fan of MSN Live but I think this is a very laudable initiative :)
