Random Hells. I remember some guy was selling Hell.com for about a billion dollars. Whoever bought it did a nice job.

Nobody bought it. Still the same artists behind it.

I don't think they really set out to sell it either, I think that when the offers got ridiculous that it made some news somewhere.

Hell.com is the anti-web. This is why it is great.

What IS anti-web? What's that supposed to mean? I see it bandied around on design sites but I can never find a definition.

I think just the antithesis of what the commercialized web is becoming. Nothing formal. Design for design's sake, web toys for the sake of playing with web toys.

It's all great until it's co-opted, and then somebody gets their eye poked out, and comes whining ... :)

I think people call hell.com anti web (and the reason I called it that above) is that it subverts the way you think about links and linking. The links go nowhere or to random places, there are sometimes dead-ends where you can go nowhere, etc.
