Hi All -
The Webby Awards were recently announced, and here are a few of my favorite sites culled from the long list of nominees and winners. Check out the entire list here if you would like more!
This site has a great search tool: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/archive/poetrytool.html. One feature includes searching for poetry-related images within the foundation's Flickr groups.
2) Best Stuff in the World
#2 and #3 on this week's list fall under the category of social networks, sites that revolve around user generated content. Best Stuff in the World has people rate and compare anything and everything.
3) Last.fm - The Social Music Revolution
Listen to and buy music here at this site.
4) The Gapminder World 2006
I think I've mentioned this site in a previous Friday 5, but it's worth another mention. This site uses graphics to represent data in interesting ways.
5) Smithsonian Photography Initiative
This site has search capabilities which allow one to easily browse photos, create a personalized collection, and share it with others.
