“Good to see that @netdivermag is still going strong (since '98)”

Todd Dominey


'Carole Guevin's long running Netdiver eschewed the superficial and trendy, instead offering links to the best and most enduring web designs and portfolios. Browsing the archive is like visiting the web's most prestigious gallery.'
