Inspiration is elusive; it can be found in anything, yet it’s often difficult to find when you want it most. Our day-to-day internet browsing is chock-full of interesting stuff. We check out a lot of great articles, videos, and discussion, but they’re usually sugar-coated digital sweets that taste great and never really fill us up. Sometimes what we really need is nutritious, thought-provoking content that sticks in our minds without the crash later.
Design Veggies is a quick attempt at healthy browsing via a curated info-mashup. It brings together a wide range of design-oriented RSS feeds and an internal bookmarklet (allowing us to add non-RSS content such as site links and descriptions alongside the dynamic feeds). Each item is given a small amount of space to allow for quickly browsing numerous snippets on a single page.
The prototype runs in any modern standards-compliant browser (Internet Explorer may not show all of the content; try Firefox or Chrome), so give it a try and let us know what you think!
