“My computer is connected to the internet and the internet contains everything in the whole wide world ever. I don’t know about you, but I sometimes find everything in the whole wide world ever to be a bit distracting.” So said Dave Gorman back in 2004. All these years later we’re connected to everybody in the whole wide world too and for better or (probably) worse, the internet takes up a huge part of our time. We use it for our jobs, for shopping, for banking, to find love and even to spread fake news.

But most of the time we use it to distract ourselves. There are many sites out there that provide an endless parade of crazy videos or pictures of kittens and they’re great, but this one is designed to be a bit less hectic. Instead of showing you every thing in the whole wide world ever, it just shows you the best things and the emphasis is on things you can do.

So enjoy and please feel free to feed back. You can follow me on Facebook and Twitter and if you have a “Thing” you feel needs sharing with the world, please get in touch.
