Clearing out the cobwebs
I almost never use bookmarks in my browser. I can get to the sites that I visit regularly by typing a few letters into the URL field of my browser. For the most part, if a site interests me and I might want to come back to it in the future, I add it to my RSS reader. And that means that there are some sites lurking in my list of feeds that haven’t been updated in years, but are still out there. And they’re still pretty cool, so I thought I would share them.
Most of these are visual, and are easy to dip in and out of; a few require some commitment.

- A blog about the design of things.
- Agence Eureka
