The Pro’s Choice in Internetworld
I will be featured in the next issue of Internetworld . There will be a two-page spread called The Pro’s Choice, where I list three web sites that I like and the reason for choosing them.
The interesting thing when I got the question was to choose three web sites that I like and that I feel I can really motivate. I mean, preaching about the things I do like web standards, semantics etc, naturally my choices should at least be a little in line with that.
Sounds ridiculous, but it would’ve been easier to diss a 1000 web sites than to promote three; a terrible and sad thought, really. Don’t know if it says more about me or the general state of the web.
Anyway, the three web sites I chose were:
I also love Google Calendar more and more for everyday I use it, so it should definitely be mentioned as a runner-up.
Do you also think it’s hard to pick good web sites? And which three would you choose?
stopdesign – I just love the look.
A LIST apart – Nice clean design with helpful articles.
mezzoblue – Gives me ideas.Notice that the are all sites are sites that help me do my work in some way or another.
Hmmm, I put this in as an unorded list but it seems to have ignored my formatting. However, it looks like Uldens was able to put in a comment with an unordered list, so how do I do the same? What are the tricks to adding comments to your site?
Can web apps be put under "web site" label? Hm…
I like Netvibes a lot too (although I really wish there was a way to mark all feeds as read). 9rules, what's that? 😉
I wish I could give you a good answer! 🙂
It seems to up to the WordPress gods… I know it will strip lists tags out, but if you write a * before each item, it magically turns into a list.
Unfortunately, though, I can't seem to achieve that effect with your comment… 😐
Anyway, thanks for writing down your three web sites.
That's a good question, and I was wondering the same thing when I made my choices. Thanks for sharing your choices!
I'll just share three of the non-tech blogs I read. Their code is really bad but their content makes it not matter.

Thanks for sharing!
Wikipedia.org – the best site ever to ever hit the web… ever
Google.com – the whole kebab; not just mail, video or any other separate part
Amazon.com – amazon really gave the whole "online selling" business a spin-around for the better
I really can't think of any other. Did I mention Wikipedia was the best site ever?
There are some new players, folks
