Glenn Fleishman chronicles the latest extinctions. It’s kind of fun reading, if only for the bits of webenfreude.

The Office of the President-Elect has an RSS feed. (Just one item so far, but I think we can expect more.)
Brand New: “Opinions on corporate and brand identity work.”
Bradley Ellis, who suggested the feed, writes that it’s “a design blog centered on companies that are redesigning their logos and appearance. It’s a great way to stay current with brand redesign, and see how logos are transforming.”
Stack Overflow “is a collaboratively edited question and answer site for programmers — regardless of platform or language.”
It has tags, so you can see all questions tagged with Cocoa. And, of course, it’s available as an RSS feed.
Nick Bradbury is good at finding good stuff to read. Topics range from iPhone development to Zappa to user interface to wing suits.
Photoshop Disasters — when photo editing goes horribly, terribly wrong.

If you’re not following politics and the election, you’re missing out on history. Politico is a great place to start.
Surely you’re already subscribed to I Can Has Cheezburger?
It’s gotten so that I don’t even say I’m checking my feeds, I say I’m checking my cheezburgers.
(Bonus link: check out the LOLCat Bible Translation Project. Cracks me up. Sample from Genesis: “Oh hai. In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez An da Urfs, but he did not eated dem.”)
Get Rich Slowly is a weblog about sensible personal finance: “personal finance that makes cents.”
I have it on good authority it has good advice.
Sorry I Missed Your Party is “pictures of others people’s parties from Flickr.”
Awful and transfixing.
(Via Bradley Ellis.)
Five Whys “is the Japanese philosophy of repeatedly asking why to find not only the direct sources of your problems, but also the root of those sources. It's about thinking long-term and looking both ahead and behind, not just in the present.”
It’s about design and society.
(Via Dustin Sacks.)
Garfield minus Garfield “is a site dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb.”
It’s also funny.
Like making things, or just looking at cool things other folks have made? A good reminder that software isn’t the only thing in the world worth making.
Better than pratfalls! Funnier than a pie in the face! Failure’s natural home on the web.
43 Folders has gotten really super good.
“After 4 years and a lot of productivity pr0n, we’re shifting gears.”
Also: “I want to help you identify and remove any obstacle that keeps you from making things that you love. And then I want to help you figure out how to make those things even better.”
Corporation Unknown is written by Seattle-ite Paul Goracke. You may not know who he is — he’s new to the indie world, and his app isn’t shipping yet. But he’s done the smart thing: ship the weblog first. ;)
Don’t miss both parts of his WWDC recap.
Twitturly “is a service for tracking what URLs people are talking about as they talk about them on Twitter.”
No surprise, the top item by far right now is The Rise and Fall of Twitter, which this reporter found extraordinarily funny.
Unclutterer is help for when you have too much stuff. Me, I have too much stuff. ;)
Sci Fi Wire is how I keep up with news about upcoming movies and TV shows for geeks.
My Ballard covers my neighborhood in Seattle. I think it’s a cool example of very-local reporting, done not by a major newspaper but by folks (the Geeky Swedes) who are interested.
