Time's 50 Coolest Websites 2005

Time has posted their 2005 Best of the Web list. It is highly irrelevent — where’s Technorati? Where’s Gawker? Where’s Bookslut or Huffpost? Where’s the porn? — but we were happy to see that some of our favorites like Flavorpill and Go Fug Yourself made the cut.
Click here for the complete list.


  1. Gawker?!? Are you kidding me? That thing is a longer, more self-absorbed version of Page Six. And you think Time is irrelevent?!? Look in the mirror.

  2. Anonymous Lawyer’s author had a NYT oped recently about why there should be legal protections against firing people for having blogs.

    This hard-covered 240-page history is profusely illustrated with over 250 vintage archival photographs, and dozens of prints, engravings, early printed advertisements, maps and related graphics.
    It covers the story of Williamsburg(h) from its earliest beginnings until the present day, in a scholarly well-researched fashion, and includes a thorough bibliography.
    The limited-edition volume was put together by local historian Brian Merlis, author of over ten other books of local interest. BROOKLYN BOOKS and VIDEO from BrooklynPix.com
    The $39.99 books will be available at Spoonbill and Sugarland Bookstore on Bedford Avenue, where a book opening celebration is in the planning stages.
