Time Magazine has always been in the list business, and once again, they’ve come out with their 50 Best Websites Of 2009 list.
I always find one main thing interesting with lists like this. I know very few of these websites, and for someone like me, who feels like I’m always on the internet, that’s sort of freaky. I think it’s actually more of an age thing now. I tend to go to websites that I see listen through other people’s blogs, or from someone who mentions it on Twitter. I don’t just surf as much as I did in the 90’s.
Anyway, here are the few sites I’ve actually heard about:
I’ve only given the links to sites I actually visit more than, well, once ever to be truthful. Actually, I should put Flickr on that list, but it’s never that I’ve visited because I want to check out their site. Rather, I end up there because someone else has posted an image that I want to see better, and it ends up being on Flickr.
How many of these sites, or sites on the main 50 list, have you ever heard of, or used? I will add that my wife is a major Hulu fan, but I’m not someone who can just sit and watch a TV show on my computer; I’m always doing something on my computer, which is why I have a TV in the room.
Maybe one day I’ll go back to this list, check out some of those sites, and then come here and write about them as though I discovered them. Nah; just don’t see that happening. After all, if Time knows about it, then how cool can it be? 🙂
