Graphic Search Engine
Topic: General
Here is a good tool to aid in WWW exploration for visual thnikers who don’t like paging through lists of search results? You enter a URL, it crunches a bit, and returns a node map with lines to sites that are “similar”. If you double click any of the nodes, they expand for the network around that node. You can use the sliders to zoom or change the spacing of the graphic, and drag around nodes to re-arrange them. And there are some graphic tools for coloring, annotating, etc.

Create Your Own Games
Topic: General

Another great, personalized widget.  Pictogame takes your photos and turns them into games. A zit squeezing game played on your friend’s face, for instance, or a puzzle that uses your face as the image or see how far you can kick your teacher.

Once you’ve made a game, it can be rated, sent by email and posted to your blog/wiki and other sites. Have fun.
