In the big time-suck that is the internet it can take forever finding and then getting so sidetracked in the search for the perfect resource.
Of course, we know that the secret is to create a collection of bookmarks. Then, organize them by subject area. Then, when you need them, they’re all there.
Those that know me know that I’m a big fan of the Portal concept. But, it’s got to be purposeful and functional and not just a mish-mash of stuff so that you can say that you have a portal.
It’s the purposeful part that really intrigued me when I read this article on Medium “How I Got 345k Page Views In Just 7 Days“. The product is an interesting take.
I think we’ve all seen a portal designed for mathematics or science or social sciences, or …
How about a “Portal for Creatives”? That’s what you’ll find when you click through to Makerbook.
It’s an intriguing and, I think, a very useful concept for this sort of thing.
Touted as “A hand-picked directory of the best free resources for creatives”, this isn’t your typical endless collection of links. Each of the categories are a short collection of very useful resources for the creative technology user. Each of the resources has a small review so that you’re not necessarily going to waste your time clicking through and being disappointed.
Access to these resources is very quick. I really like both the concept and its implementation.
Considered it bookmarked here and I would encourage you to take a look at it for yourself. Do you see it fitting into your workflow and productivity?
It’s a collection of the best of the best from the developer’s perspective and all of the resources are free.
