Yahoo! Finds of the Year 2006 – web site lovelies

Recently had the privilege of being one of the judges on this year’s Yahoo! Finds of the Year 2006 awards for the most interesting websites in the UK. We had a fab panel of judges, and it was lots of fun sifting through the nominations to make our choices. The judging is all done now (so please, no more unmarked bills through the letterbox) but the voting is still open for the most important category – The People’s Choice. So do yourself and the…

World music finder.

Calabash Music. Billed as the world’s first fair trade music company, this cool site features…er…world music. Excellent, about time, nice one!

And artists get…gasp…paid!  Through our digital network, independent artists are able to sell directly to you. Our artists earn an ‘equal exchange’…

Rustic reminiscences.

The Rustic Leather Photo Book. It kind of makes sense that having paid several hundred, if not thousands, of dollars on your fancy new digital camera, you would want to store the print-outs in something a bit better than a plastic folder from Staples. So why not invest in a classy bit of animal skin? $50.00.  It’s that beautiful… so much so that other books and albums pale in comparison. This is the sister book of our Medieval Photo Book……

Dropcash. A quick and dirty way to set up a fundraiser program. It looks neat, although you do need to set up a TypeKey account first. Oh, and there’s a blog too. But the super cool thing is the API, which has spawned things like the Dropcash Badge so you can promote your fundraiser on your website. Time for a ‘Ferrets Need Haagen Dazs’ campaign, perhaps?   Dropcash lets you set up a page so everyone can follow your progress as you near your goal…Once…

Chop and change!

Suddenly there seems to be a rush of people – OK two – growing their own furniture. First a Mr Wu harvesting his own chairs, and then Ms Lois Walpole and her cultivated coat hangers et al. Don’t sell your IKEA shares just yet, though will ya?

Modest needs.

Modest Needs.  Today at Modest Needs, compassionate persons whose lives have been touched by kindness pass that kindness on by pooling just a bit of what we can afford to share and using those funds to keep struggling families from entering the cycle of poverty. We do this by helping as many persons as we can to afford unexpected expenses like those we’ve all encountered before – expenses which, though small, can easily force a family over the edge and…
