The following links deserve attention. They lead to sites that are innovative, attractive, eye-catching, or just plain weird—in one word: noteworthy.

IKEA's "unböring"
Not only does this site feature IKEA's cool new TV ad by Spike Jonze (click on the TV), but it also guides users through a flashy tour of IKEA's less-is-more production "manifesto" (click on the book). The site's clean lines and smooth animations mirror IKEA's whimsical, innovative style. Just make sure you have your speakers turned down before going to this site at work—it comes eqipped with quirky background music to match.

Wired's Mac Tattoos & Haircuts
People getting Macintosh tattoos and haircuts...people more obsessed than me. 'Nuff said.

Here's a Website by a guy who decided to document, room by room, every single item in his house (at last count, he was up to 90%).

Where have I found inspiration lately...?
