WolframAlpha and Spezify are two relatively recent websites that are quite innovative and interesting.
WolframAlpha is a computational knowledge search engine which is still under development. It will graph equations for you, and even map out syllable charts for any word you type in! There's much more than that though, type in a date and it will spit out significant events from that day. Very helpful for statistical and mathematical school work. There's a lot of good chemistry documentation there as well.
It's quite fascinating really. Try out some of their examples.Stephen Wolfram posted:
Spezify is a very creative take on the common-day search engine. Type in any word and it will put a bunch of flash generated images of sites where that word is referenced. It's surprisingly accurate as well. You can even watch video results directly from the site, like a clean pop-up!
It seems to be a work in progress as well, but it is amazing. Type in your profile name and you may get a few things. I seem to have made my small mark on the internet, according to the results.Spezify.com posted:
I hope everyone finds these interesting and useful.
