…Nike wants you to be a part of The Human Race?

The Human Race

On August 31, join a million of your closest friends for Nike’s The Human Race, a 10K that takes place in 25 cities around the world, as well as in your own backyard thanks to Nike+ technology.

If you can’t make it to one of the designated areas on the day of the run, but you’ve got a Nike+ kit, simply register for the event, synchronize your watch, and run when everyone else does.

The goal is to get 1,000,000 people to run together, and to raise money for The UN Refugee Agency, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, and the WWF.

Think you’re up to the challenge?

Then sign up, and start breaking in those long lost running shoes once again.

…It’s easy to synchronize five metronomes?

Here’s an interesting yet mostly useless video about how to simultaneously synchronize five metronomes:

The process involves harmonic frequencies, and is a real world example of something that you probably slept through in physics class.

…NewsGator is now free?

Free NewsGator

As a frequent user of both NetNewsWire and FeedDemon, I was excited to read that NewsGator has decided to give away its entire suite of award-winning RSS readers for free to individual users, including NetNewsWire, FeedDemon, NewsGator Inbox, and NewsGator Go!

One of the key benefits to using NewsGator products is that they can be set them up so that they automatically synchronize with each other, meaning you can run multiple programs on multiple computers, and if you read a story on one, it will automatically be marked as read on all of the others.

Very GTD.

If you haven’t already, then now is a better time than any to join the RSS revolution.
