The Mixxer

Another great tool found on Web! Joe Dale published the link to a free learning platform for language students, called The Mixxer (designed by Todd Bryant). With the help of their database anybody can find a language partner for a language exchange. If you're a native speaker of English, for example, and you want to learn Slovenian :), you can find a Slovenian learner of English and than the two of you can have (Skype) conversations and improve your language in cosy, informal environment. Teachers can also find other classes interested in doing language exchanges with their students.
This really seems to be a very simple but highly rewarding on-line experience. Has anyone tried it?

I'm Suggesting a news widget you may be interested in covering on your blog: came up in May 2007 accidentally. We were making a News delivery widget for our website and thought that the same could be useful for a lot of people on their blogs and websites. Hence the Widgetmate News widget was born. The News widget is a web widget that gives the facility to site owners and bloggers to place customizable news widget on their respective blogs and sites. The Widget is available in many flavors and can be placed in your blog or site sidebar, header, footer or wherever you like. The biggest difference between other similar widgets is that our news widget is highly customizable and can be blended into the destination web page look and feel completely. Hence it looks like an integral part of the user’s page. The widget has been very successful till date with over 1000 regular users. The news is keyword driven and the user can select a combination of keywords for the news he or she wants on the page. One can change the color, font, size and other attributes of widget as per their requirements. All widgets are java script based and their PHP versions are also available. The widget is compatible in regular html, php pages, blogger, wordpress, typepad and pretty much any commercial or free hosting. The widget is absolutely free to use. There are no charges nor any strings attached.

Widgetmate has been covered earlier as well on some blogs. The widgetslab entry is here . Widgetmate has been covered on the following blog posts:
