So there I was surfing the web, checking out some random stuff as you do…surfing is addictive, blog hopping is addictive, reading everything2[/url] or wikipedia is addictive, you can just jump from entry to entry.
This particular occasion I was checking out Times’ top 50 coolest websites of 2005.https://www.time.com/time/2005/websites/
This article is a web exclusive, meaning it’s not published in the magazine itself.

How do we come up with our 50 best? Short answer: we take your suggestions, probe friends and colleagues about their favorite online haunts and then surf like mad. This year’s finalists are a mix of newcomers, new discoveries and veterans that have learned some new tricks
The List: Arts & Entertainment

The List: Lifestyle, Health & Hobbies
The List: News & Information
The List: Shopping
Notice blogs has become a category too 🙂 2 that I read made it in there: Go Fug Yourself & PostSecret, plus another 2 I visit now and then: Boing Boing and LifeHacker.
A new one I found on this list that is interesting is Bayraider, a guy finding all the weirdest stuff for sale on E-bay:https://wirelessdigest.typepad.com/bayraider/
I saw this photoblog quite a while ago too, he has some really beautiful pictures:https://www.chromasia.com/iblog/
Also a very good book review site:https://www.complete-review.com/
Completely unrelated to this entry, I found a journal from an American teacher in Japan which is hilarious:https://outpostnine.com/editorials/teacher.html
That’s all for now 😉
I protest! I should be in that list…how can like that….
WOW! Six degrees of seperation thing happening. As soon as I saw the Japanese Teacher blog, I recognised the addy as one from Sarah’s site whom I link to.
Boing Boing etc are obvious inclusions in the top 50.
Read the first post by the English teacher in Japan (Outpost nine).
That was a hell of a good laugh.
I guess what most Japanese kids don’t realise (until now, maybe) is that most westerners wear boxers while almost all Asians wear tight-fitting pants.
Heh.. Go Fug Yourself??!! And I thought only girls gonna find that site remotely interesting… due to most guys tuning out at the mention of clothes, shoes… ;P (which incidentally, Scrubs did a very funny example of this in one of the episodes).
