I just stumbled upon a site called Top Ten Sources, and if I’m assessing it correctly, I believe that editors pick a topic and then find ten weblogs they feel are good resources on that topic to comprise their “Top Ten List”. These editors then make a page for that topic (Venture Capital for example), which aggregates the editor’s Top 10 blogs into one page of information. Each page is essentially an aggregator that pulls down the latest content from those chosen blogs, and republishes that content on the Top Ten Sources site.
A quickie post for this holiday weekend, my favorite sites right now:
- Dangergraphics.com is just nasty. I’ve loved that site for awhile now — the illo touches, iconography, and slick Lucida Grande typographic stylings are just fantastic. Jason was even kind enough to drop 9rules into his favorite links.
- Wolfgang’s Bartelme Design has that Mac OS X slick look that I love, and his icon design work is truly unparalleled.
- Varien’s Family Page is my favorite page on the site, and their Design Director Ben Blumenfeld recently hit me up to show me their new company blog. Great stuff.
What are your favorite sites right now?
My buddy and business partner Colin Devroe drove all the way to New Jersey last night from northern Pennsylvania to purchase iLife ’06. He just used iWeb to put together a little page about his wedding a few years back. The design looks great, except, check out the source code.
I’m as big of a Mac fan as anybody else, but the new Apple MacBook Pro just doesn’t sit with me as well as I thought it would. I never expected that Apple’s pro-level laptop would be one of the first machines with an Intel chip in it, but I, and many rumor sites, were wrong. I’m currently in the market for a new laptop since I sold my previous PowerBook and iBook, and I was seriously looking into purchasing the new MacBook Pro but I’m a bit turned off after sniffing around a bit. Read on for my two cents.
A new law has just been passed that makes it now illegal for anybody to “annoy” (yes, that’s the word they used) others on the internet anonymously. So, I guess, if you post an anonymous comment on a weblog that pisses somebody off, you can now be arrested and forced to endure chinese water torture and/or reruns of The Waltons.
