Sites like Digg prove that user generated content works, but aggregating news is one thing, can they inspire you?
Below you’ll find a list of the best user generated sites to visit when you’re looking for a little inspiration.
Allows you to organize and share your photographs with others. A great source of visual inspiration (like my collection of inspiring cityscapes), and also a good place to find some free photographs to use in the your next project, but be sure to check the license first.

More logos than you can shake a stick at. Although the users don’t get to select what appears on the homepage (yet — hint, hint!) all the logos that are added to the gallery are viewable. A great place to visit if you’re looking for a little brand inspiration.
