…It’s Website Wednesday: CommandShift3?


CommandShift3 is “like Hot or Not for web design”.

(In case you’re wondering, the name comes from the keyboard shortcut to take a screenshot on an Apple.)

On CommandShift3, you are presented with the screenshots of two websites side by side. If you click the screenshot of the site you think looks best, the page reloads and you start all over again. It never ends.

There’s a best & worst page where the winners and losers are gathered up, and you can browse winners by tag, week, or month, so there are plenty of options if you just want to look around for some inspiration.

(And if you’d like to check out and hopefully vote for on CommandShift3, go here.)


…It’s Website Wednesday:

ManCrush is an attempt to classify every man of stature in the history of the universe.

Defined as “the highest level of attraction a man can have towards another man without having any sexual want towards that man”, it’s like a hot or not for the metrosexual crowd. Like a Digg for dudes, you simply click the up arrow for a guy you like, and the down arrow for a guy you don’t. Then, based on the total number of ‘crushes’, one man will be crowned king.

Current favorite? Major Richard Winters, followed by Vincent van Gogh and Ernest Hemingway (though Mohandas Gandhi is close on their heels, and God is always a contender).

Go ahead and give it a try; I won’t tell.
