Cool sites, Monday, March 14

On my forum, I started posting a daily "cool site" from the large list of interesting bookmarks that I've collected over the years. When those sites deal with computers and technology (the general theme of MikeBlog's projects), I'll cross post them here.

Today's cool site is http://www.hackaday.com/.

The site's description (from the site):

welcome citizen engineers. hack a day (beta) is a web magazine devoted to cataloging all the best hacks, mods and diy (do it yourself) projects from around web. each day i’ll post one hack i like, seen or tried and once a week a special how-to. this is in beta, so enjoy the occasional oddity and sawdust while it gets cookin.

why a site? i thought it was time to have one spot on the web with all the things you can do with ipods, digital cameras, consoles, portables, locks, macs, pcs, anything that can be modd’ed or hacked. a lot of the desire to do this is so i don’t have to hunt around as much for ideas. the goal is for anyone who—has an old pda, a tivo, an atari, an ipod, xbox, or any device just sitting around, then hits hackaday.com, bang, sees all the things folks can do with it to void the already expired warranty or get more out of it.

My comments: Each day, http://www.hackaday.com/ posts a new hack. I make an effort to visit every day to check them out! This site is very cool for the hacker-in-you. I read it not only for the curiosity and entertainment value, but to look for new ideas as well.
