Geeky Greats: Useful & Interesting Web Sites

The timeline of Internet Memes is an amazing journey through time, all the way back to the early days of the internet.  What makes it funny and interesting is that it chronicalizes a thorough history of internet memes:  those funny themes that run through the internet subculture. is a useful site which helps you test and select color combinations for use on your web sites or digital creations.  I love this type of tool, not being a person who can match colors very well.

For the desktop, I recommend carrying a copy of the awesome, free tool known as Color Cop.  I’ve been using it for years, so I donated to them a while back, and if you find it useful, you should too!  Color Cop is an eyedropper tool that provides much of the same functionality as the eyedropper in Photoshop, but is lightweight, versatile, and easy to use.

FormatFactory does and amazing job of converting your Windows media files from one format to another, and it does it all for free.
