Webby Awards - vote for JoS

If you think JoS is a cool community vote for it on Joi Ito's site:

Personally I have learnt a lot from Joel's article's as well as the smart people who hang out here.

JoS doesn't deserve the Webby Awards, if you know anything about the Webby awards.

I was under the impression that webby recognizes Good stuff on the web. From your post I concur that it is exactly the opposite.

Oops:-)

But then there is no such thing as bad publicity!

Well, it's not too hard to see what the Webby Awards are for:

It's not a bad thing to win one, but I'm not sure of JoS is the type of site that they are looking for.

Good lord - it's an award by graphics ad geeks for graphics ad geeks. It's like the anti-Joel awards (form uber function)

The miniusa.com site that won their Business award is AWFUL. Yeah, it's pretty, but the home page is flash, it's got sound everywhere (including an annoying cheering noise on the actual homepage) it uses a fixed-size popup...

I'd have to say it may in fact violate just about every business usability rule there is...
