Kottke’s Best Links 2008 actually does have a number of good links. This is definitely worth checking out.

Check out this blog. It’s full of rude language and snarky comments about cute pictures of animals. That’s pretty much the holy trinity of the Internet right there. Did I mention the language is rude? Yeah, if you don’t like swear words, this one may not be for you.
RoofRay is kind of an interesting site. You enter your address into google maps. You outline your roof (preferably a southern facing roof), and it calculates how much power solar panels could generate for you. It even runs the numbers to tell you what an installation would cost and how long it would take you [...]
I’d heard about Dr. Horrible, but I didn’t pay much attention until today. The first of a 3 part episode was out yesterday. The 2nd is out tomorrow. You have until July 20th to see all 3 on the internet. It’s better than I would have expected. Very high production values, and a quirky sense [...]
I spent the past week or so working my way through 5 years worth of Questionable Content back archives. It’s a web comic strip. On April Fools Day, this super geeky comic that I love, XKCD switched comics in a round robin “prank”. I read a few, and was kind of interested in the characters. [...]
I just went through the back archives for A Softer World. I suspect the creator would resist this label, but it’s sort of a hipster comic strip. It seems to try too hard in a lot of them (maybe that’s just a natural consequence of doing 250+ of them), but there are flashes of brilliance [...]
Sixty Men from Ur provides a facinating way of thinking about how short human history really is: Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., one the United States’ great historians, is less than two lifetimes removed from a world where the United States did not exist. Through Mr. Schlesinger, you’re no more than three away yourself. That’s how [...]
Flash Photography with Canon EOS Cameras – Part I. provides a very detailed discussion of using Flash with Canon cameras. It also may help explain why some images I took recently had a bunch of motion blur even though I was using flash and expected to be able to freeze the action.
The artwork over at Fubon is really nice. I’m not typically a fan of heavy flash sites. I especially don’t like sites that look to flash for navigation. The stuff on that site is really nice to look at though.
This story about Super, Aquatic Lions is crazy. It does have me wanting to go get some buffalo meatloaf though.
