Weekend update: Other things found this week:
I haven't tried to make a complete list of tsunami links by any means, but here are a few more I picked up on last week:

Something that impressed me this past week was the new, free encyclopedic search service that was previously a pay service called Gurunet. It's credited with being a great way to find answers rather than links. (See what you get if you put in 'hialeah', e.g.) There are also great reference pages, This one is on Places. Check it out. If you like the encyclopedia searches from the browser you can download a version that works in any software on your computer. You can put the search window on your own page too.
