I like highlighting projects that have helped others in some way and I usually do this by selecting projects with lots of “are these notes helpful?” votes.

This time I tried something different. When planning projects, especially larger ones, many people collect projects that are inspirational and helpful in their favorites. If you do this, when you begin a project of your own, your related favorites will appear in the right margin so that you can quickly find them.

I found people who may have been planning in this way by looking for folks with clusters of favorites that relate to the same pattern. Then I looked for projects that were favorited by many different people who were (likely) planning a project. The results were really interesting and I’m thinking that I could do more with this in the future. Here are a few that I picked out.
