SiteShuffle: dead simple way to keep track of your favorite pages

SiteShuffle is a just-launched, bone-simple way of keeping on top of your favorite sites aimed at novice and casual Internet users. The UI is a set of arrows at the top of a browser window that you click to scroll through a list of your favorite "homepages" -- click on one to load it in your browser. A simple, stripped-down recommendation system recommends other sites you might add to your rotation based on your similarities with other users. SiteShuffle is a project from some old, good friends of mine, two of whom -- John Henson and Grad Conn -- were my business partners back in the days of OpenCola, a P2P software company we founded together. SiteShuffle is their latest effort, and it captures a super-simple, do-one-thing-well aesthetic that I love -- it takes about ten seconds to grok and thirty seconds to master. SiteShuffle

Are elephants really afraid of mice?

The rumour that elephants are scared of mice is very persistent and there are whole collections of jokes circulating on this topic. However, these jokes are just as incorrect as all the stories about women who scream and jump on the nearest chair at the sight of a mouse.

Why aren't the elephants scared?

Basically, elephants flee from danger and are afraid of whatever they don't know. Zoo and circus elephants, however, know practically everything about their environment, and they certainly know mice. Whenever large quantities of hay and straw are delivered to a stable, there are often a few mice hidden in the bales.

In their search for food, mice quickly discover the elephants' many leftovers. Furthermore, a stable is an ideal home for a mouse. It has everything it needs: food, nesting material, warmth and quiet hiding places.
