  64. Thibault says:

    Thanks a LOT for including Marcofolio here Chris – really appreciate it. I have 2 great upcoming articles lined up this week – stay tuned ;) .

  71. ian says:

    Good list, although I’ve now increased my number of blogs to check out via RSS thus reducing my time to do other things. Damn you! :-)

  72. Oli Gardner says:

    Excellent breakdown Chris. I’m running through a design process for our website, and sometimes you just need to walk through a list of cool sites to get some inspiration.

    When they write well it’s an added bonus.

    From your list, I find 24 Ways is really clever and always enjoyable.

    Also really enjoyed your last post on usability crimes.

    Cheers
    Oli
