Pity the article did not mention it: the site can be found at http://digitalshadow.com/
It seems to be US only, though.

Re "Extend your search keywords to add "nosite". i.e. nosite:experts-exchange.com": you can already do this (and this feature has always been available). Just add a '-' to 'site:domain.com'. So, just add -site:experts-exchange.com to your search query and you will not see any results from that site.
'Jeopardy!' To Pit Humans Against IBM Machine
This was news last year. That post contained a reference to http://games.slashdot.org/story/09/04/27/1354213/IBM-Computer-Program-To-Take-On-Jeopardy -- April 27, 2009. Interesting, but old.
World Solar Challenge Started in Australian Desert
The success of the Dutch team has (finally) caused others to take up the challenge. One is another from the Netherlands, the http://www.solarteamtwente.nl/nieuws.php Solutra team (http://www.utwente.nl/ University of Twente). Compared to the Delftian guys, these people are novices, but it's nice to see some real rivalry and competition being initiated. I saw them practice, just a few days before the went to Australia, and asked if they has practiced changing tires (which I think is the important thing in winning the challenge). The answer: no, not yet, do you think that's important?
Remember that it really is a challenge, since temperatures inside the car can get more than 50 degrees Celsius.
