Wikipedia updates via RSS

This makes perfect sense, but I don't think I ever used this feature of Wikipedia. Anyone can subscribe to any entry in the world's most famous Wiki and receive updates when content has changed. Think of the possibilities: subscribe to the page of your favourite band and find out when a new album has been released or when a tour date has been added; subscribe to the page on a topic of interest and see what others are saying about it. This could be useful.

Ning - DIY Social Software

This is really interesting. This website lets you create your own social software tool, and hten immediately share it with others, who can then modify it to create a new tool. It's just amazing to see all the inventive purposes to which people can put this to use.
