Heather Champ, I guess one of the founders/designers/creators of the Mirror Project, has an interesting/beautiful site in its own right - Harrumph! Enjoyable to read and pleasing to the eye...what more could I ask for?

This is a phenomenal site. Don't miss it.

Ok - When I looked at first, I didn't go past the first page, so didn't read the "about" page.

Mo--always good to see the Barrett triplets together.

Yeah, I always say that, statistically, the odds are that if you're a weblogger in New York, your last name is Barrett, you're a twin, and you're in a computer-oriented profession. At that gathering, an amazing 50 percent of webloggers present fit those criteria!

When will we realize that we should never try and do anything interesting?

Heh ... the tumbleweed tag is like the br tag ... doesn't need closing.

Guess I really should have put <tumbleweed /> to be politically correct tho.

Ya know, this thread wouldn't even be here if Heather hadn't bought an ad. That Mathowie guy's a goddamn sellout.

anil, you are such a trouble maker! i thought i gave you $20 bucks to keep your mouth shut.

but, in all honesty, the link appeared at 5:20 (i'm a morning person, but not that morning) and i bought my ad at 8:00. i'm tickled that you'd think it interesting enough to link to.

*I'm* surprised it's never been linked to here before.

...or has it?
posted by me3dia at 11:53 AM on October 22, 2001


i've seen links to sites that were compared to it...though, i just assumed the mirror project was already a pretty well-known site, and so it Feels like a doublepost.

Well-liked as well. [reminds me i haven't submitted a pic in a long while.]

I thought everyone just knew about it through some kind of osmosis ...
