It's still good. That was closely followed by fray.com. If you trawl domain names off the list, you'll find a lot of good sites as well. untopia.com might also be worth a good look, though its creator was not strictly a professional Web developer when I last heard from him. Gems can be found at astoundingweb.org. The features that run at nationalgeographic.com also have a lot to recommend them (though the style of presentation is tightly controlled). Communication Arts (commarts.com) features a site every week, and you might be able to find gems here as well. For me, though, the process works in reverse. I let the good stuff come in its own time, and when I find it I take a closer look. -- Ben Henick Web Author At-Large http://www.io.com/persist1/ persist1 at io.com "Are you pondering what I'm pondering, Pinky?"
