Caring, Understanding, Nurturing Types. Atomic Kitten: "Take three gutter whores from a Liverpool council estate, mix with some slim fast, stinky cheese and annoying cover songs that were shit and annoying when first released and you get Atomic Kitten..."

Flickr I'm not sure if this is a social networking thing or a group weblog. I think it's probably the former. It's in Beta, and run by some bloke called Stuart. I've just joined up, and I'm having fun. (You don't need an invitation to join.)
The Happy Monk. "Believe it or not, I became a monk because I am a hedonist at heart. The fun began when I became a monk. I am not trying to be flip by saying this.

I can name that tune in 30 seconds... The latest web rush: sites that will tell you where a song you heard on a TV commercial came from. Adtunes vs. What's That Called? (U.S. version or U.K. version) Very important in a world where Led Zeppelin and Cadillac go together. more inside
Has the turing test finally been passed? As the BBC, The Register and New Scientist report, "paedophiles attempting to "groom" children in internet chatrooms can now be detected by a computer program". This program can successfully imitate an 8-year old child, and can then alert the authorites once it detects signs of paedophile activity. The software is the work of ChatNannies, an organisation dedicated to making chat rooms safer places for children. NannieBot is the first AI construct to effortlessly pass the 'Turing Test', after more than 13 hours of conversation the AI was still undiscovered!. more inside
