A friend recently asked how I find so many cool websites. I’d like to be able to take credit for sniffing them out myself, but almost all of them come from other bloggers who do all the legwork. I just track some of these blogs and keep an eye out for interesting things that they link to. So, here’s my latest installment, gathered from the four corners of the blogosphere.
- YaGoohoo!gle: search for keywords, and this search engine mod will display Yahoo! results on one side and Google results on the other. Fun little widget.
- Zoomquilt: click on the link for the Flash file format to view a cool expanding universe. (hat tip: A Whole Lotta Nothing)
- Acronym Finder: Have you been wondering what those kids are writing in their Instant Messages? Now you can find out. Type in an acronym—ROTFL, TTYL—and the Acronym Finder will spell it out for you.
- Rite in the Rain: notepads and pens that repel water
- ALUMA Designs: perforated aluminum picture frames.
- Write-On Perforated Poly Static Cling Sheets: movable, reusable whiteboards. Place on wall, write, wipe, peel off wall, repeat. (hat tip: Kevin Kelly Cool Tools
- You Grow Girl: lots of gardening tips and techniques
- Tape Kitchen Timer: cool design, visually appealing, and functional to boot. (hat tip: gizmodo)
