Rome is a set of "Java utilities that make it easy to work in Java with most syndication formats."
Andrew is playing with his new Gateway DVD player.
Slate: "He accidentally zapped himself with spyware, then spent days documenting his attempts to get rid of it."
Don Park: "Why is Korean cuisine so spoon-centric?"

US Army War College: "What if you were given a tool that would monitor the flow of new information on your favorite web sites and let you know what is new on each site?"
