~Mariano Pascual A virtual desktop created by a talented visual artist. The design is on point, the art is great, and the whole virtual desktop is well executed. Definitely worth checking out. art, virtual desktop, personal, web Added by uelen

Elkins DIY The webpage of Paul Elkins, a self-taught vehicle designer. He focuses primarily on small bike campers, emergency shelters, and boats, all constructed from corrugated plastic. Fascinating and affordable designs, and he sells plans as well. personal, diy, design, boats, low tech, mechanics Added by reed

Mx. van Hoorn's Cabinet of Hypertext Curiosities Much like Terra, this is a web directory of neat links. Some stuff I've seen before, but nothing too popular or obvious, and everything is high quality. Still updated, so check back! personal, web, retroweb, discovery Added by reed

Simon Sarris's List of Art Collections A handy compendium of many different sources for digitized copies of public domain art. Simon's blog looks interesting too. personal, art, media Added by reed

Back Street Frying The website of 3 friends, and the recipes and food they eat. Find the "secret" blog or poke through some recipes. Consult the oracle for your mealplans, if you dare. personal, blog, culture, food Added by reed

Chris Shier Maurits Cornelis Escher-esque psychedelic art. Amazing web-based animations by Chris Shier. art, trippy, personal, media Added by aujxn

Nerdy Pleasures This guy does a ton of hacking on old computers and gaming systems. There's some great hardware mods I've found on here and a huge wealth of content on systems from the Game Boy to DOS and the PCjr. retrocomputing, gaming, personal, blog Added by uelen

Max Bittker The personal site/portfolio of a web developer, this site is full of some fascinating projects. The author is the developer of orb.farm, broider, mojulo, and lunar bocce, all other Terra entries. Beautifully weird website, with lots of hidden interactions and fun controls. design, personal, web, art Added by reed

Elliot's Computer The personal page of a web developer (creator of special.fish and Gossip's cafe, two other Terra entries {check them out!}), this page arrays its content in a multitude of little blocks, each one devoted to single purpose. Fun to explore, and a great gateway into a small artistic bubble, here in the web wasteland. personal, design, web, culture, discovery, music, art Added by reed

Hundred Rabbits The creators of some totally FASCINATING software, Hundred Rabbits is a studio run by a duo consisting of a cartoonist/writer and a programmer/musician. Together, they travel the world in a small sailboat, building fascinating experimental software focused on self-reliance. personal, computers, boats, open source, design, sustainability, web, hacking, art, tech Added by reed

~syx The personal website of Simone. The site is full of fun trinkets like a link directory and endless 3d maze personal, discovery, directory Added by uelen

Special Fish Part web directory, part social media network, all fascinating. This experimental page groups people by interests and who they follow on the site. At the same time, it only has space for a few questions about individual users and a free-form text file, plus links to personal pages. textboard, web, design, directory, personal Added by reed

href.cool A web directory, run by Kicks Condor (see below for their website.) A beautifully simple site tracking things that appeal to Kicks Condor's peculiar and wonderful style. web, culture, art, hackers, tech, personal, media, design, retroweb, directory Added by reed

~Dennis Havlena This page covers a really wide variety of DIY musical instruments and instrument modifications. There are tons of short articles on all kinds of instruments including the bagpipes, banjos, guitars, bazoukis, fiddles, hurdy gurdies, drums, a variety of African instruments, and more. Really a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. personal, music, retroweb, diy Added by reed

~gwern The Website of Gwern Branwen - this is a fascinatingly complex personal site/wiki, with extensive writing on a variety of topics. Worth it just for looking at the beautiful web/graphic design. Also a great example of a minimalist and fast site that still has all kinds of interface niceties like link previews and drop capitals. personal, blog, design, tech, hackers, journal, web, culture Added by reed
