A human search engine

Most of you probably know what a search engine is. Couple of the most famous search engine is Google and Yahoo. Basically what you do is just type a keyword that related to the topic and you’ll get a list of sites. That’s just the beginning of what you really want to find. You have to check out each and every site in order to find what you want. Take for example if you’re looking for a information that related to cars and how to repair, most likely you’ll spend a lot of time searching online and probably won’t find the exact material.

Here’s a service that you might be interested if you’re not good with search engine. You can just let others to search for the things or info for you. At WeSeekIt or human power search engine, you can just tell them exactly what you look for and they do the search online for you. That’s right. Instead of you do the search online yourself, you let others do the work. It’s a new search engine power by humans. Try it out.

P/S: I think this site is good for those that are not familiar with search engine. Sometime you might spend hours in front of the monitor and might not find what you want.

Free Alternative CAD software and other AutoCAD related info

Frankly speaking, I don’t know much about Auto CAD design software but I do know getting the software license is expensive. Not many people able to own one especially students. That is the reason why people starting to search for an alternative software to replace it. As long as you’re able to use the alternative software to achieve your goal, then it’s all it matters. No doubt that there are a lot of functions with the use of Auto CAD program. In many conditions we only use up 10%~20% of the functions and that’s really a waste. Here’s a few of the sites that I found might be useful for those of you that are in architecture and always in use of Auto CAD. I hope that these might come in handy. - CAD shareware, demos, free utilities and add-ons.
CADspan - creates 3D printable file from any CAD model.
3D Animation Workshop - 3D modeling tutorials, lessons and software reviews
CAD Corner - Architectural Auto CAD Details
Solid Components - 3D CAD drawings for design engineering

Earn money by uploading and downloading files

That’s right. You can earn money by downloading, uploading, storing and sharing files. and is couple of site that I found which enable this money making opportunity. Is it too good to be true? Well, it’s true that you’re able to earn some money through these sites but there are some rules and regulations. First of all only members from certain countries are eligible to earn money through these sites. If you’re from US then you have the chance to earn money from the sites. You’re able to earn $5~$30 per 1000 downloads from the files that you upload, bedside that you’re able to earn money from referring others too. You might not earn much but I think you sure able to earn some. Basically if you upload some useful things that are needed, you should be able to get lots of downloads. Things like business plan, excel work file, sample of power point presentation, research data, meeting minutes, pictures, music as long as it’s legal.
There are actually lots of free uploading, downloading and file sharing sites available online. Competition between these sites struggling to survive is fierce. The idea of giving out part of the revenue to users really is attractive. At least it will attract lots of users in a short period of time. It’s actually a good idea for a start out promotional purpose. In long term basis, user friendly and good services still the 2 basic things that keep the site alive. Will these 2 sites survived? Time will tell.
