Plaxo and Linkedin are two websites where you can post your professional profiles. I was surprised to see how many friends, family members, and acquaintances were already members of this site. It is a great way to check on someones professional history and status quickly without waiting around for a resume to arrive or getting the person on the phone. I had an easier time setting up my Plaxo account and suggest using it.

Librarything.com is actually pretty cool. I added 6 books to my library profile (The Great Gatsby, Slaughter House Five, Catcher in the Rye, The Fountainhead, The Da Vinci Code, and Fab Five). I like how I can see who else recently added the same books and who else has similar libraries. It also recommends books.
There are various types of image generators at bighugelabs.com. Some are easy to use and rather simple while others are more difficult and more detailed. You could create movie posters, mosaics, puzzles, and motivation posters with you images and personal text. I chose a very simple one where it where it appears a bunch a polaroids are pinned up in a random cluster creating an image of me playing the guitar in the living room. A fun experience.

I got a lot of great information on the FitCast podcast. I posted the RSS feed to my Google Reader. The two djs covers a lot of things like dieting, alternative exercising, exercise science, and even movies. There are some podcasts that are not so braod, but I enjoyed this one. There are endless options of podcasts in the directories. These directories help organize them, but you still have to search around for the quality one or the ones that might appeal to your personality.
