  • Oozled: Fast Growing Resource Collection for Designers and Any Webworker

Now that effort is online. It answers to the name WebComponents.org.

One of these high-grade new services stems from Athens in Georgia, US. Designer and photographer Matt Hobbs and his wife Shayna created and maintain it.
