From TIME's 50 Best Websites of 2009

TIME's 50 Best Websites of 2009 feels a little tired to me. Many of the sites aren't new and nothing seemed particularly groundbreaking (and if they were, you already new about them). But you'll still find a few gems worth bookmarking.

Think of Fora an in-depth TED talk. Videos range from under an hour to nearly two hours as a group of speakers talk about a given topic. Fortunately, the program is divided into chapters and you can see how long each speaker goes on for. You can also find information on the speakers and links to related sites, and download audio and video. The tone is quite serious and the setting very formal. So to balance things out, hop over to OMGPOP and play as you listen. It's nice to be competitive for a change.

But first, think about this The Economist article on computing and climate change.
