Scribd

Photobucket



Scribd
http://www.scribd.com/


A free online library where members can publish documents. The terms say not to upload marketing material, like the rebranded ebooks that lead to completely idiotic Web sites that have the function of selling more of the rebranded eBooks. But, from what I could see submitting a free short story, or an eBooklet with tips for authors is fair game. An example is Paperback Writer Lynn Viehl's free stories and writing tips. Another non-fiction author Bill Allin has set up a group highlighting his work.

There is a social network involved where people can "friend" other members, join and create groups, and comment on each other's writing, or label their work as a favorite.

There are tons of public domain free eBooks from short stories to novels.

You might already be a "member" because members can use their LiveJournal or Technorati ID (among other options) to sign up.

Electric Planet


Electric Planet, originally uploaded by David Cartier.

I found David Cartier's Northern Lights pool of photos on Flickr this weekend and am awed. This isn't my favorite of the lot, but it is absolutely gorgeous anyway.

I've never had the pleasure of passing through Canada's Yukon Territory when the Northern Lights were dancing, but there is never a shortage of something beautiful to see. Every time I drive the highway I consider that the Yukon is one of the least populated areas on the planet, and how so many people are missing out.

Of course, I want to see Gao, India too.

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
