My Gallery is a “free website dedicated to artists, art appreciators and buyers that lets them meet other artists and display their works.” It’s also a fantastic concept — a virtual art space where artists and art appreciators can do everything from discuss issues relevant to the artist community to buying, selling, trading or just appreciating each others’ art pieces.

Skydiver Network is a network for skydiving, base jumping and tunnel-flying enthusiasts. Just looking at this network is like taking a shot of adrenaline, even if you’re looking at it from the comfort of the earth’s surface.
Photos of free falls, in various formations? Check. An image of a child “falling” in a wind tunnel? Check. Video of a guy jumping out of a building, landing safely at the bottom and high-fiving a cop afterwards? Check! And there’s also a place on the forums where members of the Skydiver Network can buy or sell gear.
