New Website Seeks Contributions!

Via Maria Bear at the Yahoo! SF Publishing Group:

I’m working on the Books & Booze website (after an embarrassingly long hiatus). The idea is, it’ll be a living, dynamic resource for Bay Area book professionals (sales, design, editorial, production, and everyone else).

One of the pages will be a collection of the best resources out there for publishing professionals. I’m asking you for your faves, with maybe a sentence about why.

The obvious stuff will be up there of course (m-w.com, thesaurus.com, etc.) but also as many niche or weird ones as possible.

For example: The U.S. Patent & Trademark site. Great for checking whether a term is generic or requires a ™. http://www.uspto.gov/

“Lipsum.” Lorem ipsum generator, also has interesting information about the history and uses of “greek” text. http://www.lipsum.com/

Send ’em along, and share your awesome finds with your colleagues. sfpubgroup@yahoogroups.com
