Just headed over to Obit Magazine, to get the latest on Alexander Solzhenitsyn. He's dead, yes, but that's the point: this site, founded by architects Bob and Barbara Hillier, is where we get our daily updates on everyone who's, ahem, passed, plus anything else kick-related that you might fancy: cartoons, essays, videos and the gloriously addictive "died on the same day" feature. Sounds morbid, but the site's so smart and fun, it really just makes you feel...philosophical. And okay, kind of mortal. [Obit Magazine]
