Nolug, or Norwegian Online User Group, is a community for users of online databases and search tools.

There are a large number of search oriented sites out there, but you only have to follow a few to get the essential news and commentary.

Susanne also presented her favorite RSS web feed readers and online bookmarking services and discussed why such services help you cope with information overflow.

Well, you can read about it in this short slideshow:

Supreme Evil

Mark Vidler, the mashup artist of Go Home Productions, has made his first mashup video.
