The splendour of the web

This past month or so, I’ve been absolutely delighted with the sheer splendour of the web, the incredible richness and diversity of stuff out there. And all so easy to get to. Here are a few of the sites I’ve really enjoyed, mainly arrived at via Twitter or StumbleUpon. Some I’ve come across before, some I’ve visited for the first time. They all share one thing though: they gave me enormous pleasure:

Lego Art: Where Christoph Niemann struts his stuff. Lighthearted, enjoyable, a whole new way to look at New York.

Scanwich A fine collection of cross-sectional photographs of sandwiches; the Katz’s deli helpings look as enormous as ever.

Radiology art The hamburger shot was interesting, as was the cellphone. But this clamshell stole the show for me.

Red Chillies: One of my favourite cookery blogs, written simply and beautifully

I know it’s going to take a while for people to figure out the right things to do about intellectual property on the web, but I do wish they’d hurry up. Just look at the stuff that’s out there despite the poor laws.

    Art gives pleasure. Online art gives much pleasure. Because it can be shared so easily.

    Thank you very much for mentioning my blog and also for all the kind words. I really appreciate it.

    I have read about you and understanding that this is coming from such a high profile person humbles me and also encourages me to do better work with my blog.

    Thanks again.
