The 100 Best, Most Interesting Blogs and Websites of 2013
Editor’s note: 2015’s list of the best, most interesting websites has arrived! Welcome to one of the web’s most anticipated lists of the year: The 100 Best, Most Interesting Blogs and Websites of 2013. This is the second such list I have made since founding DailyTekk and it’s very special. A website can only be featured ONCE in this annual series, so make sure to check out last year’s list so you don’t miss 100 other amazing sites and blogs. I’ve broken this monster list down into 19 categories and limited myself to five links per category (except for the last category) to ensure I whittled away all but what I thought were the most deserving candidates of right here and right now in 2013. This post kicks off a whole new year of incredible top 100 lists (see a summary of the best curated content from last year in The Ultimate Lifehack for 2013: 200+ Incredible Sites and Services).

The 100 Best, Most Interesting Blogs and Websites of 2012 (Categorized) Editor’s note: 2015’s list of the best, most interesting websites has arrived! I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly running into so many cool websites I want to remember or recommend to people but I don’t always have time to make a note of them, add them to Evernote, bookmark them in Delicious, etc. So this is a good example of a post I created as a personal (and completely unscientific) resource that other people will probably benefit from as well. Some of these sites are pretty new while others have been around for a while now, but they are all awesome right now in 2012. 2013 Style99 Fashion Blog Ranking Style99 Methodologylog4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly. Traffic is always an indicator of popularity, but related actions like linking to stories of interest, or sharing them on social networks are a greater indicator of influence. After building our initial index of websites, a score is assigned to each blog based on link data and sharing activity across social networks.

Stuff we droold over Thursday, July 25 2013 How many times have you misplaced your keys only to wish that you had some form of location tracker on it? With Tile, your wish has been answered. As a small square "tile", hence the name, it can be placed on or in any of your important items, such as your purse, bag, wallet, or luggage. Once you sign up for a Tile account, you can access its app on any smartphone and track the distance to your lost item. In addition, you can mark your item as a "Lost Item", which means that you'll receive a notification if any other Tile user happens to be in its range.

The 200 Best Graphic, App & Web Design Tools & Resources Well we’re back at it again making another one of our infamous Top 100 Tech lists (many of which have been shared hundreds of thousands of times), except this time we’re aiming our sights at the world of graphic, app and web design (and we’ve doubled the scope to 200 amazing items). Technology and design are inseparable these days. Designers rely on computers and software to express their creativity and in turn, technology companies like Apple rely on good design for distinction and differentiation (from industrial design to marketing).

Reinventing Academia [Update (5/29): Eric Weinstein will be giving a follow-up lecture this Friday (5/31) at 2pm at Oxford's Mathematical Institute in lecture room L2 (which, I believe, is at location 22 on this map ). Physicists and mathematicians in the area! I hope some of you will be able to attend, and will post your thoughts / reactions online. Note: if you are friends with an Oxford Physicist, please invite them to attend this lecture -- this is apparently a necessary step. Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research We study the structure and dynamics of Web traffic networks based on data from HTTP requests made by users at Indiana University. Gathering anonymized requests directly from the network rather than relying on server logs and browser instrumentation allows us to examine large volumes of traffic data while minimizing biases associated with other data sources. It also gives us valuable referrer information that we can use to reconstruct the subset of the Web graph actually traversed by users. Our Web traffic (click) dataset is available! Our goal is to develop a better understanding of user behavior online and creating more realistic models of Web traffic. The potential applications of this analysis include improved designs for networks, sites, and server software; more accurate forecasting of traffic trends; classification of sites based on the patterns of activity they inspire; and improved ranking algorithms for search results.

My Daily Style I do love grey tees, printed jeans and ethnic bags. Here you have a look with all of them! This soft and light tee from Free People is amazing. STAMPEDE - A Stamp That Turns Your Photos Into Postcards by Stampede Stampede is a reusable stamp that allows you to turn your printed photographs into instant US Postmaster approved postcards. If you’re like most people, you have shoeboxes full of photos somewhere in your house. Maybe they are under your bed or in a closet. These boxes could be full of your own photos as a budding photographer, sentimental photos of you with your parents, children, and friends, or photos from your distant past. When's the last time you opened one of those shoeboxes? If you take a look at them now, you'll probably smile and instantly remember the time when they were taken.
