“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

Online flashcards for those necessary rote learning tasks

Knowtes calls itself a flashcard-based learning community - with an 'adaptive learning engine', which means that it adjusts how often you repeat study cards based on how well you've done on previous attempts. This looks fantastic for such as languages - although at the moment there's not so much here (a fair bit of Spanish language and an esteemed colleague who's learning Spanish has been engrossed since finding the site!). Still, I suppose this is a typical Web 2.0 idea, whereby we the community will populate the cards - where the framework for development is there and if you wish to learn something yourself, why not help others to learn it, too, by using the site as your own learning space...
