Around the World
I’m currently reading through Heidi and Jon Connal‘s Round the World Trip: “It was a choice between buying an apartment in NYC or seeing a bit of the world. We chose the latter. […] The end result: Over a year of traveling on THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME!!!”
I’m sure that Heidi and Jon didn’t regret their decision in favour of a world trip because sadly and inexplicably (so far), Jon died on February 18, 2003.

Author Michael Chabon “makes a fair amount of his work available on the web. In addition to presenting pieces originally published elsewhere, he offers up […] the usual I have a website and this is what I like.” Link via MetaFilter.
I read Kavalier & Clay a little while ago; more links, including one to the first chapter of the book can be found here.
Periodensystem.net ist eine Site mit ausführlichen Informationen zu den chemischen Elementen – ein gutes und nützliches Nachschlagewerk. Link via Imke.
If you understand English, I also recommend the Visual Interpretation of the Periodic Table of Elements, available in flash and html versions, with additional information in html and as pdf.
