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.

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. Most recently i have also worked with mootools because i had to create a component for Joomla 1.5. This week, i had to do something with sliders and had to look into each one of these in more detail.
