As far as I’m concerned, the problem of bookmarking the web isn’t solved yet. I keep starring sites in Chrome, trying to put them in logical folders, although searching and browsing them later is a pain and I never do it. Pocket is great for saving articles to read later offline, but I also use it for double bookmarking entire sites that I find useful and it sucks. I just don’t think of searching there, when I need to find something specific.

I sometimes use Evernote and Pinterest for bookmarking while I’m researching a specific topic and it’s kind of OK. But I don’t have a place to simply store my favourite websites.

So I decided to start a simple list of resources that I’ve been using recently for design reference, research and learning. As this list grows, I’ll be thinking of a better way to present it.
