Best Links of the Year

In case you don’t have anything to do on your first day back at work, Kottke has been kind enough to post his best links of 2007. (This is where I got the idea for my own two part series.)

A few favorites after looking at it for a few minutes: Line Rider masterpiece, Feltron’s personal annual report (which should have made my list), desktop tower defense (a game I know I should try but am incredibly scared I will become addicted to) and the website for Miranda July’s No One Belongs Here More Than You. Two I’m especially looking forward to reading: New Yorker piece on David Belle inventor of parkour and the greatest long tracking shots in history.
