Fire Mountain Gems has an interesting article on Yellow being chosen as 2009 Color of the Year. I'm not necessarily a big fan of yellow (probably because it looks terrible on me), but I do like the names of the shades that various groups have chosen to represent the year:
Mimosa - Pantone
Both of those are from the Color Association of America.
Anyway, check out the article if you're interested in color or yellow or if you have nothing better to do LOL!
