Tell me about Pinterest?
I hear everyone talking about this site all the sudden. Is it good for promotion? I popped over there but didn't see the appeal. What am I missing?

There is some murky legal business with how Pinterest attributes images that people pin. It makes it very easy for people to rip off copyrighted images, though, arguably, it's very easy to steal images from the web without pinterest (print screen).
