Top Selection of the Day
Web Pages That Suck (in 2005)
I started this site back in 1996 and every year I've planned to hold my version of the "Razzies for the Web." I wanted to honor those web sites that made us feel good about our skills -- "Hey, my site isn't THAT bad." In 2005, Web Pages That Suck featured 293 Daily Suckers. Of that total, I considered 117 bad enough to be possible candidates for the "Worst Web Design Techniques Featured on Web Pages That Suck in 2005." The short list consisted of 57 sites. Here are the "winners" in my completely arbitrary categories

The Atlas of Cyberspaces
This is an atlas of maps and graphic representations of the geographies of the new electronic territories of the Internet, the World-Wide Web and other emerging Cyberspaces. These maps of Cyberspaces - cybermaps - help us visualise and comprehend the new digital landscapes beyond our computer screen, in the wires of the global communications networks and vast online information resources. The cybermaps, like maps of the real-world, help us navigate the new information landscapes, as well being objects of aesthetic interest.

UrlyArt is a photo mosaic made of tiny screenshots of websites. Each website has a link to its own URL. So, UrlyArt is artwork made up of URLs. It's pronounced like "early art," but has nothing at all to do with caveman paintings. The UrlyArt idea was conceived over a long Mexican lunch on February 9, 2006 by Ron Hornbaker and Joe Sparks.The site was quietly launched on February 20, 2006.

An emoticon, sometimes called a smiley, is a sequence of printable characters or a small image that is intended to represent a human facial expression and convey an emotion. Emoticons are a form of paralanguage commonly used in e-mail messages, in online bulletin boards, instant messengers, or in chat rooms. The word emoticon is a portmanteau which popular etymology bases on emotion and icon. In truth, the second element is con, short for console, not icon.
