The best websites in the world… ever!

Posted: August 16th, 2006, by Marceline Smith

It seems to be that time again, whether coincidentally or no, as we have Time’s 50 Coolest Websites and The Observer’s Websites That Changed the World this week. Time’s makes for good reading, full of links and giving props to our awesome pals The Morning News. The Observer’s is a little dull as it’s stuck with regurgitating info on the big names (Google, eBay, Amazon etc.) like those Best Albums Ever lists that are full of The Beatles. I did find it interesting to read some of the history of sites like Blogger and Myspace. My brain has started ticking though – maybe we should do a diskant version?

Incidentally, if you haven’t noticed, I am adding new links regularly to the diskant homepage (bottom middle column) via the magic of del.icio.us. One day I will find the time to add them all to the links section.

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
