As the soggy & cold weather conditions outside my apartment grow worse by the minute this evening, I would love to jump on a plane and head for a warm weather holiday! It was in this mindset tonight that I discovered thisisand. If you are having similar “weather blues” this evening, just go over to thisissand and take a crack at creating a sandy design. The soothing sound of sand swishing around the screen is very nice. And, if you are as creative as some of the folks on the site, you can even build your dream of a perfect summer day at the beach.

Speaking of pixels saving the day…I just stumbled on this article about how companies that execute on their digital strategies may fare better during the current downturn. (Hat tip to PSFK)
