Best of 2008

happy new year!

January... an important month. My birthday, MLK's birthday, Obama's presidential inauguration, and a plethora of lists of the "best of ______ of 2008."

Here is my top 10 list of websites of the year, not including obvious sites like google or facebook. Also in no particular order.

1. Etsy. Handmade inspiration.
2. Juxtapoz. Art and Culture.
3. BBC News. You should read it every day.
4. Apartment Therapy. Covers all the basics.
5. Design Sponge. By far the most comprehensive, organized, and enjoyable design site to browse through.
6. Sheldon Brown. Any technical information you need on ANY bicycle...ever. RIP SB.
7. BIGSTEREO. electro electro electro remix extradordinaire
8. Craigslist. I use it almost every day.
9. FFFOUND! Photo bookmarking. addicting.
10. Wikipedia. Get a grasp of what you're talking about...
