File and Media Sync, Web Backup and Mobile Access - SugarSync
The best sync and backup solution I've seen so far. Very clean interface. Ease of use. And, pricing more reasonable now with founders' circle pricing for everyone. Hopefully, they will raise storage level in the future the way Google does with Gmail.

Google Sites Under Apps
Finally, it is here. Wiki-like site building from Google - from JotSpot acquisition. Google is pushing wikis to mainstream by letting users recognize that wikis are super easy-to-use websites such as portals, classroom sites, etc. I just had a brief scan, and it is not bad at all for the first version.

Two announcements (Lessig Blog)
You should check out this 10 minute video by Larry regards to the launch of his Change Congress movement (part of his fight on "corruption - influence of money in politics") and the decision he'll try to make (around Mar. 1) about running for Congress in a special election for CA-District 12. He's one of my most inspired thought leaders. Obviously, he's reaching out for an almost impossible goal with tackling corruption - essential for monumental innovation and change. Is it already the right time to run or would there be enough support for his beliefs? It is not an easy task to change our current system of politics and hope you can support his efforts towards a revitalized system of politics where influence of money won't take politicians to wrong decisions.
