Can’t Find On Google

Can’t Find On Google

Can’t Find On Google
http://www.cantfindongoogle.com

Most of the time, you punch what you want to know into Google, and you instantly get what you’re looking for. But have you ever had that experience, where you try query after query and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t find what you’re looking for? That’s what this site is for — because the things Google can’t find is more interesting than the stuff Google can find. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog. This has been added to Deep Web Research Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

StopBad Ware.org

StopBad Ware.org
http://www.stopbadware.org/

We’ve all seen it happen: you or someone you know has downloaded something from the internet that seemed harmless enough at the time. Next thing you know, the computer has slowed to a crawl. Pop-up advertising starts to appear out of nowhere. Private information gets sent to some company you’ve never heard of. And the worst part? Trying to uninstall the software might only make the problem worse. Viruses and worms are no longer the biggest threat to computer users – now it’s badware. Badware is a term we use to encompass the broad range of malicious software that is sneaking onto people’s computers, including spyware and deceptive adware. It can subvert your computer for the benefit for a third party, frustrate you with unwanted advertising, and even steal your most personal information. Badware plagues millions of computers already, and it’s eroding people’s trust in the internet. Their mission is to fix that. StopBadware.org is a “Neighborhood Watch” campaign aimed at fighting badware. We will seek to provide reliable, objective information about downloadable applications in order to help consumers to make better choices about what they download on to their computers. We aim to become a central clearinghouse for research on badware and the bad actors who spread it, and to become a focal point for developing collaborative, community-minded approaches to stopping badware. Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society and Oxford University’s Oxford Internet Institute are leading this initiative with the support of several prominent tech companies, including Google, Lenovo, and Sun Microsystems. Consumer Reports WebWatch is serving as an unpaid special advisor. John Palfrey, Executive Director of the Berkman Center and Harvard Clinical Professor of Law, and Jonathan Zittrain, Harvard Law Visiting Professor and Professor of Internet Governance and Regulation at Oxford University, are StopBadware.org co-directors. Supporting them are an advisory board and working group made up of some of the top experts in the field, including Internet pioneers Esther Dyson and Vint Cerf.This has been added to World Wide Web Reference Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

My Web My Way

My Web My Way
http://www.bbc.co.uk/accessibility/

My Web, My Way is a new website which aims to help arm our audience with the tools and understanding which will enable them to make the most of the world-wide web (not just bbc.co.uk), whatever their ability or disability. The site provides advice and help to all those people who would benefit from making changes to their browser, operating system, or computer to be able to view bbc.co.uk and the rest of the web in a more accessible way. The site is not only for those with disabilities (visual, hearing, motor, cognitive or learning impairments) but also, for example, for those people with minor vision impairments who would not consider themselves to have a disability. The site also provides a guide to getting the most of the accessibility features that BBC New Media are increasingly putting into bbc.co.uk. The site has been developed and maintained through a partnership between bbc.co.uk and AbilityNet, a leading UK computing and disability charity. It is based on AbilityNet’s original My Computer, My Way site. This has been added to World Wide Web Reference Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

Seekz – Parallel Web Search Engine

Seekz – Parallel Web Search Engine
http://www.seekz.com/

Seekz is a parallel web search engine, or metasearch. It is a university project and is non-commercial. Every time a search is performed, many of the Internet’s top search engines are queried simultaneously. The results are merged into one large set with the most relevant websites appearing first. Seperate pages from the same website are grouped together. Although Seekz is currently at an early stage of development, it exists as a fully working, and highly capable, web search engine. The search engine will be kept running and continue to improve indefinitely after the lifetime of the university project. There is large scope for additional features, and many will be implemented in the future. This will be added to the search engine section of the 2006 Internet MiniGuides.

OpenNet Initiative

OpenNet Initiative
http://www.opennet.net/

The OpenNet Initiative is a collaborative partnership between three leading academic institutions: the Citizen Lab at the Munk Centre for International Studies, University of Toronto, Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School, and the Advanced Network Research Group at the Cambridge Security Programme, University of Cambridge. Their aim is to excavate, expose and analyze filtering and surveillance practices in a credible and non-partisan fashion. They intend to uncover the potential pitfalls and unintended consequences of these practices, and thus help to inform better public policy and advocacy work in this area. To achieve these aims, the ONI employs a unique multi-disciplinary approach that includes: Advanced Technical Means — using a suite of sophisticated network interrogation tools and metrics; and Local Knowledge Expertise — through a global network of regionally based researchers and experts. OpenNet Initiative research will be published on their website in a series of national and regional case studies, occasional papers, and bulletins.

Kayak – Travel Search Engine

Kayak – Travel Search Engine
http://www.kayak.com/

Kayak.com is a new kind of web site. It is a travel search engine. We help you find travel products, and you buy them from other people. Thus our tagline: “Search with us, book with them.”™ Kayak.com is very much like the Yellow Pages. When you need a plumber, you look in the yellow pages, it shows all the plumbers, and you call some of them. When you need a plane ticket, you look at Kayak.com, we show you a lot of different plane tickets from different plane ticket stores. Then you go to those stores and buy them. This will be added to the search engines section of all the 2006 Internet MiniGuides.
