Most Amazing Top 2
I’m subscribed to ~50-60 RSS feeds in Google Reader, most of them are design related. I also follow hundreds of design related people (and 1 meerkat) on Twitter. I like being up-to-date. I recently started the website Design Heroes so I could bookmark the best of the best. The rules for Design Heroes are decidedly simple:
- Rule #1 - links have to be design related .
- Rule #2 - links cannot start with “Top 100…”, “50 Excellent…”25+ Amazing Super Awesome…”
Simple, you would have thought. But rules #2 cuts out 90% of my daily intake. What’s the deal with the online design community today? There is no creativity in naming articles, it’s just lists and lists and more lists. It looks like a robot has generated half the content in my RSS reader.
