Found Friday Vol 67

^

Another instalment of Found Fridays, another collection bursting at the seams with awesomeness. The overwhelming amount of awesomeness may be due to the fact that it’s my birthday today. Right guys? Guys? Anyway, this week we have: a little online tool for testing out your CSS code; a project to brand every lake in Minnesota, one per day; an awesome little tool for organizing beer in your fridge; a great article on how to be excellent at anything; and a must-read article for UI designers.

Branding 10,000 Lakes

A project to brand one Minnesota lake per day. Apparently it’ll take 27 years. Cool (if a little ambitious) idea, and good work posted thus far.
