For all you that watch online videos, this link should make its way straight into your links. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader. This site makes the best talks and performances from TED available to the public, for free. Almost 200 talks from our archive are now available, with more added each week. These videos are released under a Creative Commons license, so they can be freely shared and reposted.

Forcetwelve has some of the best typographic layouts that I have seen recently. Their use of space, type and form is very clean and refreshing to see.
These are always a good time waster and very interesting to view. But Designers Republic on the same line as Getty Images in the ‘Classic Design Line?’ I don’t think of Designers Republic as leading the pack for web trends 2008 or ever. I also don’t think of Getty Images and think classic design (maybe mega corp and gas stations, yeah). Adobe Fireworks? No YouWorkForThem? ;)
