I love browsing through other people’s fave websites. I’ve found loads of great stuff spread about in the discussion forums. I bet most people here have quite a long list in the ‘My favorites’ bar in their browser. It would be great if they could share them.
Therefore, I think the links section needs to include a wider variety of categories. Yes, have the serious useful stuff, but also let people share lists of fave sites and also lists of ‘weird and wonderful’ stuff of particular interest they have come across on the net. Each link on a list would need to have a concise description of the site’s contents.
I think there shouild also be some scope for discussion of the sites listed. People can say if they like them or not, or add comments or further related links.
Maybe to increase use of the links section it could be moved into the general Discussions area, maybe an ‘On the Web’ sub-section of ‘Tech in Taiwan’.
I’m not sure exactly how an improved links forum would look or work but I definitely think something needs to be done.
In the meantime, send me your fave websites - love’em, love’em love 'em!
