Design Nugget - Checkland Kindleysides

I've been trying to pay closer attention to websites, web design and other interactive media recently. It's the area I know the least about, and have the least experience, so I'm really trying to intentionally steepen my learning curve in hopes of getting better.

Today I came across a site that absolutely blew my socks off. Design, flash, colors, navigation...I love it all. It's so fresh and unexpected I can't stop looking at it.

Only one word: gorgeous.

As if the weather isn't bad enough, I got this email from my sister this morning:

"The temperature on my way to work this morning was -17 (without windchill. I think it was -35 or so with). The temperature when I go to Florida is 76. Can't wait for that 93+ degree difference!!! You sure you can't come??"

Thanks for that. I hope you get a blistering sunburn and then get eaten by a shark.

Oh wait–both of those things would be more desirable than going outside right now...
