Microsoft TaskMarket, another job market?
Microsoft TaskMarket.com (full screenshot), originally uploaded by asim.zeeshan. Microsoft has introduced a new service called Microsoft Task Market which connects small businesses with skilled freelancers for help such as web development, graphic design, marketing, copy writing, document translation, and virtually anything.

Learning the Yahoo User Interface Library
The cool book that i just bought today. I was previously working with Prototype and Scriptaculous (and im very good at it) and then jQuery.

Note: Post comments and your criticism below.
Yahoo Adds Video to Flickr
Yahoo has added support for video to its photo sharing site Flickr. Yahoo wants users to start sharing videos, shot by still cameras, camcorders and camera phones, as well as photos, and Video on Flickr provides an easy solution for consumers, according to the company.
