Fleck is a free Web annotation tool for marking up blogs, Web sites, and social networking profiles with little sticky notes. The service launched late last year as a Firefox-only tool and has since added compatibility with Internet Explorer. Fleck, like other annotation tools, can be a dead-simple way to collaborate and leave visual feedback for others without the hassle of software or the complexity of more advanced business collaboration tools.Managing annotations with Fleck is very simple. Just plug a URL from any Web site into Fleck.com and you’re ready to go. You can create and move around small yellow bullets that double as full-sized sticky notes when you expand them. Everything is managed from a floating toolbar that resides on the bottom of your browser window. The toolbar gives you straightforward access to add and share annotations with others. You can send off your notes to someone via e-mail or publish them straight to your blog if you’re a WordPress user and are willing to install the plug-in on the server that’s running your blogging tool.

Denmark, Esbjerg city and region are delighted to be the host for the 17th ICAT

Esbjerg was named as Danish city of the year 2006. The country’s 5th largest city is
situated on the beautiful South West Coast of the Jutland peninsula in the middle of
the country’s loveliest holiday area on the shores of the North Sea and surrounded
by woodlands and parklands. The city is recognized as the GATEWAY TO
SCANDINAVIA and is known as an educational Mecca with 11 institutes of higher
education. Numerous museums and galleries present international and national
works. The local architecture is wondrous -from faithfully restored Viking sites that
illustrate the country’s cultural history -to the ultramodern Performing Arts Centre,
Musikhuset which was designed by Utzon (architect of the Sydney Opera House,
Australia). Legendary seafaring stories can be accessed by visiting the local fisheries
museum where visitors can also have ‘close encounters’ with all form of sea life.
Excellent opportunities abound in shopping via Denmark’s longest pedestrian street.
Esbjerg is also the ideal starting point for visits to LEGO or the home of the fairy tale
author Hans Christian Andersen.
The Mayor & the people of Esbjerg look forward to welcoming you to the city.

assorted Brisbanians, being involved in 5 events at last weekend’s Emerging
Writers Festival including our brand new Ya Lingo multi-lingual MC Cipher
concept… this Thursday is the final instalment in what has been one of the
busiest months in Uber Lingua’s Melbourne history….
Earlier in the year we were invited to play at the last ever Melbourne

rhythms from indigenous cultures of the developing world, Ujahmaa
Soundsystem are fronted by a collective of deejays and emcees, from Kenya,
Cuba, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Jamaica, New Zealand and local homegrown talent
toasting big tunes from afrobeats, hip hop, reggae, kwaito, r&b, dancehall,
psychedelic funk, soul, salsa, reggaeton, roots music with an urban ghetto
Soon settling in a new arts bar and lounge in the heart of the city (Red
Violin) and launching their own independent record label, Ujahmaa
Soundsystem’s clash with Uber Lingua at St. Jeromes offers you a rare
opportunity to experience and sample their musical spirit.
Featured suspects at this week’s gig at St Jeromes, deejays Flavio ex-Cuba
(no cigars! Just good music), Ras Kauzi (Uganda), Bongo (Kenya), wicked
emcee Presye RifRaf (Zimbabwe) clashing against Uber Lingua’s finest.

quick with lotsa back to back action…
