Maximum PC's website layout and functionality is hands down better than every website on that award list. As another user stated, GE's little webcam page deserved at least one of those categories.

I personally feel that just about all of those websites listed were aweful.

Don't worry about a webby, it sounds to close to a wedgie and none of us want that. who cares, your readers and everyone else who gives a hoot really knows who's tha Shiznit.

The activist winner was in part, a preachy movie which actually took ages to load. (maybe unfair there due to present excessive demand on the servers). My current (no pun intended) favourite is GEs Smart grid site with augmented reality. Surely the AR alone would warrant it a prize? No.

Nike lets the public know that women (or girls as the company labels them) are just a huge marketing target. 

GE with AR should have won, but to be honest, I don't think any global international should win. That is up to the judges though. It is like McDonalds winning the 'International Annual World's Best Burger Competition'.

All that has happened is that a bunch of leftie liberals and corporate types have degraded the Webbies. Don't cry over it. Just go back to your rigs and benchmarks where 'those awful folk' can't interfere with FACTS and be happy knowing that you are better than that!

If this is supposedly the best of the web it makes me wonder why the hell i'm paying for internet service. What a load of dung. Consumer electronics: Tom Tom... Seriously?

webby's are just popularity contests, every website that was nominated tried to send all of thier visitors to vote for them. I suppose you could argue that the ability to mobilize supporters is award worthy but honestly I think the whole thing is a waste of time.

I can think of 4 of my most visited sites that ran adds trying to get themselves votes for this useless award.

Is it just my crappy browser or is that your crappy .html hanging out up above?

 

These are the InterWebs? Where's the bicycles, babes and beer?

Sorry,

 Wrote and posted the story in Ubuntu using Firefox, the rendering problem was only with Internet Explorer.

Thanks for pointing it out, all fixed up :)

Didn't mean to offend by the vociferous commentary. I am a recidivistic grammarian.
