The Webby Awards announced

Today's announcement of the Webby Awards winners was of particular interest to me because I was one of this year's site reviewers.

I was assigned some 70-odd nominated sites to explore and rate. They included two that I thought were quite extraordinary and dozens that should have been singled out as textbook cases of user-hostile design driven by art departments engaged in passionate affairs with their trendy software. None of the sites I reviewed made it to the finals.

My friend Meg Frost's Cute Overload won both the official Webby Award and the People's Choice award in the Weird category; that's the site's second annual Webby win. As they say on Cute Overload, "Big snorgles!"
