Alfons mentioned the ‘4400’ show, a series I’ve never heard of before. Apparently, it just started on its 4th season on USA Networks (I think it may be carried by NBC, not sure about this). There’s an extensive Wikipedia entry on the show and just like ‘Lost’, fans of the series have started a 4400 Wiki. I recognized one of the songs played during the pilot (you can watch episodes on the tv-links site [11/01/07: Defunct]): it was the theme song used for Stephen King’s ‘Kingdom Hospital’ (which was song/performed by the band Ivy [website]).
Earlier this week, someone pointed to the (video) site ‘I’m Cooked’, a site that allows users to upload videos of how to prepare their favourite recipes or meals. Actually, I think I got there via a MetaFilter link (right here). I was skeptical about the site but, apparently it’s popular.
Slightly related to above (relatively): I found this video about the double slit experiment and quantum theory. Informative, funny and clear.
And last but not least: I found an excellent series of articles about generics, graphs, datastructures and binary trees in C#. If you forgot about these elementary programming parts, now is a good time to refresh your mind.
