I recently moved from Brunswick, Maine to San Francisco. I know there are all sorts of amazing things going on here, but I'm looking for unique, helpful, or interesting websites and services that are either specific to San Francisco, or primarily helpful in large cities that weren't available to me in Brunswick. Anything you'd call "Web 2.0" probably applies, and if it's in beta that's probably a good sign. I've got a (short) sample list after the fold. [more inside]

I'm putting together a list of some of my favourite time-vacuum websites. What I mean by that is a website that you can visit and then lose half your day to, by the sheer amount of great stuff to read, watch, play, listen to, learn, etc etc. They could be news pages, or a site where there is always something new to see, or maybe just a database that you can lose hours mining for interesting information. I'm sure we all have stuff like this in our bookmarks, so I'm turning to the hive mind for help to expand my list of really interesting sites. [more inside]

I've been inspired by fellow mefite gomichild's site . I want to put together some of my photos for a site but don't know where to begin. I'm not confident with my design skills, and I wonder if I have any photos that are really good enough. I usually just post photos/snapshots on flickr for friends but I have had people contact me wanting to use my photos- so maybe they aren't so bad...Any suggestions for how to start? Anyone out there want to give me a (paid) hand putting a page together? You can see some of the photos at my flickr site(lots of snapshots here) or at JPG. I could put a few hours a day into a project. Right now I am oozing lack of confidence....

Which science and technology websites do you (the scientists and technologists) visit regularly, to keep up to date on your subjects? I am, preferably, looking for generalist sites which are either global or UK-centric, such as the New Scientist website. Websites which focus on (or have sections on) applied science (especially those with any connection to "appropriate technology") would be particularly relevant.

Okay internet ninjas, can you help me figure out what the crap happened to all this static website's traffic? At the beginning of February '09, visits dropped to about a quarter of what they once were and stayed there, literally overnight.. The culprit looks to be StumbleUpon - referrals went from quadruple digits to doubles even though there was absolutely no change in the site or its (non-existent) marketing. Though I've read up on SU, I still don't really get why this happened. Can you explain and/or offer advice on fixing it? [more inside]

My family has lost touch with my oldest brother. He is retired and reclusive by nature but we would still like to know where he is living. The last thing we know is that he sold his home in California some time in 2009 and then seems to have disappeared. He may have moved out of the country as I can imagine he wasn't very happy with the Obama election and he had mentioned in the past his desire to move away from the U.S. either to Ireland or Buenos Aires. Can anyone suggest a few good "finder" sites, hopefully free or nominally priced?
