1000th posting on Thing of the Day!

October 21, 2011

After four years of rounding up the “bizarre and brilliant of the web” the Library blog reaches a milestone today with the publication of our 1000th posting. To celebrate this achievement we thought it might be fun to have a look back at some past TOTD favourites with a list of our ‘Top 10’ sites. So, in no particular order…

  1. Giant Lego Boulder
  2. Anamorphic Illusions
  3. Draw a Stickman
  4. Sodaplay
  5. Flurrious
  6. Wordle
  7. The Ugly Dance
  8. 21 Accents
  9. Galaxy Zoo and our very first entry in October 2007:
  10. Le Book

And in case you just had to have a new one:

Jemma Foster’s collection of 12 illustrated short stories made from recycled cardboard and painted by hand in Argentina.

Many thanks to all who’ve contributed links and ideas over the years.  Keep them coming!

And moving away from videos for a moment, if you have signage issues in your building – how about suggesting this to the powers-that-be?

(You may recall other anamorphic illusions we stumbled across in November 2007: https://reden.wordpress.com/2007/11/27/anamorphic-illusions/ which are still fascinating to look at).
