Unexpectedly powerful; also, ducks.

The November 2013 issue of the magazine Mental Floss‘s big article was “The 25 Most Powerful Websites.” Two surprises: No, Google is not #1; it’s not even on the list. And, the 7th most powerful website is … LiveJournal. That’s mostly because of its role in Russian public discourse. But hey, we think it’s important, too, right?

Also, just because: 50 Ducks Invaded A CVS In New York, Were Extremely Well Behaved. Mallards, to be precise.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

    I guess Google is classed as a search engine, rather than a website?

      I don’t know… maybe it’s that Google has so many sites (like YouTube, Google+, Blogger) that maybe they transcend the category. Or maybe they think Google ultimately isn’t all that innovative. I’m just guessing.

    That’s actually a pretty interesting list … though I take no solace in the fact that many of the sites on it are long-gone and nearly forgotten. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes, there were a few moments of “Ah, I remember THAT….” It was pretty cool that they dug deeper than just the obvious ideas that come to mind today.

      They left out Geocities. ๐Ÿ˜‰
