Where we’ve been this week…
1. Cool Tools A good friend sent me this link. He wanted me to check out the 10 best magazine articles. That story was good but the whole site is worth a look. The editors recommend the best/cheapest tools available. Tools? Yep. “Tools are defined broadly as anything that can be useful. This includes hand tools, machines, books, software, gadgets, websites, maps, and even ideas. All reviews are positive raves written by real users. We don’t bother with negative reviews because our intent is to only offer the best.” Where to start: A rather nice review of our very own Aeron.
2. The House Vote You get to have your say – every day – on residential design. The tally is ever changing and the items to vote on are inevitably well chosen. Where to start: At the top…it’s oddly satisfying to click and see your vote instantly calculated.
4. Fieldguided This is the design blog of a 31 year old woman in Toronto who blushes easily and has two black and white cats. And this is one of the reasons I love the net. You get a sneak peek into the inner workings of people you’d never come across in your day-to-day life. Where to start: Melinda Josie’s home in the This is Where I Live series.
5. Neither Fish nor Fowl The blog of talented illustrator Jim Datz. Where to start: At the beginning…I can’t click on separate posts to give you a link. Make sure you scroll down to the piece on the free desktop wallpaper Datz designed.
