Cool Sites

These are courtesy of a newsletter by the Poynter Institute.
Cool Sites
Tech reporter Bob Bicknell at KYW Newsradio 1060 in Philadelphia posts a nice collection of cool, unusual and useful Web sites you may have never heard of. Among them:
TechPresident.com -- One of the many sites following the candidates on their marathon journey toward the primaries and the White House is TechPresident.com.
Most interesting here is how the site tracks the candidates' MySpace.com pages and the number of viewings they get on YouTube.com.

ClinicalTrials.gov -- For anyone who's been diagnosed with any disease or disorder, the promise of a clinical trial offers the hope of a new and perhaps better treatment. That's where this site comes in.
ClinicalTrials.gov is run by the National Institutes of Health and can link you to help that you might not otherwise get.
DoMyStuff.com -- This site promises to help you "outsource your life." Here's where you can put your chores and errands up for bidding. Others can then browse the job, see what you're willing to pay for it, and "bid" on their own to take that job.
