Gift list

The following gifts were donated by several generous individuals and companies and were given out to kottke.org micropatrons. The total cash value of the gifts is about $6200.

My friends Tamara and Julie make soaps and other bath and beauty products. My favorite is the Oatmeal & Honey soap.

PulpFiction is a newsreader for OS X that emulates the familiar Mail.app interface. Fresh Squeezed is also throwing in a copy of their Rock Star "name that tune" game for iTunes.

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.

The SXSW Interactive Festival is held every March in Austin, TX and features top-notch speakers on technology and digital culture.

Enjoy six months of Flickr Pro for free...more uploads, unlimited storage, and ad-free browsing on my favorite photo storage/sharing site.

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

Macromedia's Studio MX 2004 bundle includes copies of their Dreamweaver, Flash Professional, Fireworks and FreeHand software programs. For OS X or Windows.

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

Marshall's work has been featured on The Morning News and File Magazine sites. The print features a photo from Marshall's upcoming gallery show.

Jewelboxing makes professional-grade CD and DVD cases...the kits come with everything you need (minus the printer) to make your own packaging.

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*?

Pixiesdiscs are limited edition CD recordings of each show the Pixies did on their 2004 tour. Collect them all.

This hardcover book contains over 140 full color pictures from the last five years of explodingdog.

Six Apart makes Movable Type, the weblog software that powers this site.

Emergence was a New York Times Notable Book in 2001 and I've been exploring the bibliography extensively ever since I read it.

Down and Out, Cory's first novel, takes the social and economic dynamics of the web and throws them into the real world for us to chew on.

FeedDemon is an award-winning newsreader for Windows.

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.

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

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

Surowiecki writes the a financial column for the New Yorker, one of my favorite features in the magazine.

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

Eastgate is serious about hypertext, but recognizes the need for other methods of storing data and telling stories. The handmade Italian journals they sell are absolutely gorgeous.

Alison Headley, proprietor of I Like Beads and the Bluishorange weblog, sells delightful handmade jewelry when she's not dayjobbing.

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.

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).

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