Social “Wordmarking” associates one word with one Web site.

" is a social word association engine. Enter a word and you view the website associated with that word. Or, if you come up with a new word, you get to associate it. You may also re-associate words to your liking."

The “first come, first served” nature of the site isn’t very democratic, but it makes for some fun results.

Bot-Hack : Add video to Skype and Google Talk with Festoon

Free third party plug-in Festoon adds video to both Skype and Google Talk.
"Just connect a camera, download our free Festoon plug-in, and see each other one-on-one or invite up to 200 buddies to a video call - even if they don’t have a camera. But wait, there’s more! You can also share anything you see on your screen, even your entire desktop!"

While the usefulness of webcam video, though very cool, seems somewhat limited, the advantage of sharing a view of your desktop has a lot of potential.

Next time you’re pulling out your hair to help your friends understand how to work their iTunes library over Skype, you can show them exactly what you’re talking about.
