You may have seen Eliot's excellent photographic work on slower.net. Prints will be suitable for framing.

Choose any three shirts from the folks who bring you the popular Diesel Sweeties comic. Note the sweet use of Silkscreen.

If you're looking for web hosting, Textdrive "is a hosting company run by and for people who love publishing on the web". Did I mention *for life*?

Sam draws funny but poignant pictures from titles suggested by his readers. This print's title is "sometimes i just want to kill everyone".

Gladwell is a staff writer for the New Yorker and wrote two little books called The Tipping Point and Blink. You may have heard me mention them and him on the site from time to time (or all the time, rather).

Each month, you'll receive a signed limited edition 5x7 print of one of Heather's photographs.

Threadless sells shirts and over the past two years, has supplied a good chunk of my wardrobe.

TopStyle is an XHTML/CSS editor for Windows by the guy who created the excellent HomeSite.

You ship your CDs to Ripshark and they convert them to MP3. The VIP Rip covers about 450 CDs of music.

NetNewsWire is an award-winning newsreader for OS X and MarsEdit is an OS X desktop app for editing your MT, Wordpress, or TypePad blogs.

Basecamp is the much lauded online project management app that has been called "the iPod of project management".

I haven't seen the book, but from the photos and description online, it looks beautiful, wonderfully made, and a little crazy. I want one of these myself.

FeedDemon is an award-winning newsreader for Windows.
