You can find a similar list for 2008 here. To see the best of 2007 which is really only December, just look through that month. There are some good ones in there too. As usual when it comes to these lists, “best” is what many now call “awesome” and it serves more as a roundup than as a statement of value.

Don’t forget to check out the comments. They are sometimes the best part of the post, especially when there are a lot of them.
