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

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.

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

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".

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

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*?

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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