The history of Directories and Search Engines
I found it quite interesting how "Google's Directory" (DMOZ) was referred to over and over as just that, ie., "Google's Directory", when in fact it is DMOZ.
The only thing "Google" about it, is the fact hat Google appears to rank sites in the directory according to PR as a qualifier for popularity.

WEBxperience Directory - Nicely Done
What is the directory you ask? WEBxperience.
The directory is well organized, and categorized. There is very little clutter, which really impressed me for a directory site which relies heavily on imagery. WEBxperience is edited by a number of people which are featured on the site.
Apparently WEBxperience has been around for 2 years, originally starting as a free internet library of web sites edited by humans. They appear to be listed in DMOZ and their directory is completely devoid of pharmacy and gambling related web sites.
Overall I found the directory to be one of the most well organized I've recently come across. And it is damn pretty to look at as well.
My advice to other directory owners or those starting a directory is to take a good look at WEBxperience. These guys seem to know what they are doing!
