We still love them, now it's just easier to share them - Thanks to Facebook, Twitter and good old email.
Some websites and blogs are all about the cool stuff. So if you need some inspiration (read: "need/want to procrastinate") here are a few sites to tempt you:
A "social catalog service" where users can set up virtual pinboards to collect images they love. You can follow others and re-pin other's finds. A very arty community. Request your invite to be a part of it: http://pinterest.com/boards/
A UK based blog with high quality posts about cool stuff in the categories: design, music, fashion, news, travel, architecture, interiors, art, toys, nightlife, food, technology, accessories, health, entertainment and trends. www.weheart.co.uk
...for your ideas + aesthetics + amusement. www.notcot.org
A blog posting inspiring images. A good lunch break filler. http://inspire.2ia.pl/
