MakeUseOf.com - Nice Blog
« on: October 24, 2007, 09:42:22 AM »
This site has been mentioned in passing a few times on the forum but i think it deserves a post of it's own.  Nice blog-type site which is quite active and has some nice roundups..

On makeuseof we don’t write about any new web applications that comes around but only about ones that are COOL, FREE and USEFUL. It may be a subjective judgement but that’s how it is. We also try to keep it simple and all accessible, so that even newbies who never used such sites like Digg and Delicious or ones who think AJAX is famous washing powder brand can easily find their way around.

Indeed a very good site. I like the fact that the posts often have a single theme (15 best of this, 10 coolest of that...). That said, I think a "best of the week" post (and separate RSS feed) like the one boingboing, lifehacker and some other sites have would be a good things since the posting frequency is quite high.

I love this site, too. They take their time and post good content. And content — not quantity — is what it's all about. Check it out when you get the chance.
