May 1st Reboot
. On April 25, participating sites shut down and post a Reboot Holder, until May 1st, at which time they relaunch. Why?
Upon review of all of this year's participating sites, a good number of them are not using the required Reboot Holder. Most have simply continued with normal operations and even made updates as recently as this afternoon.

This orthopaedic surgery site
seems more like a design exercise than an actual attempt at an informative site. Imagine that someone told you to make the site using poor technology choices, couple it with non-professional content not conducive to trusting the doctors, and add a map to the office that does more to enable chuckles than get people to into the business. It's so bad, it's good, and most definitely do not
skip intro on this one.

The guy who wrote Your CSS Bores Me
(previously linked and discussed here
) has decided to accept his own challenge. For the month of February, he will be applying a different stylesheet to the index page of his site, with no manipulation of the HTML document itself. This is one to watch, if you're also a code geek.

We keep hearing about this "who owes what to whom" now that Assembler
has closed, and Kaliber
But what of it? What does it mean? Are we so closed minded to think our Web world is the only one and that somehow the rest of the universe revolves around those of us privileged enough to be able to embark on it as a daily journey?
All of us feel one way or another towards this debate. Either we hate it, or love it, and what of that too? What *do* each of us want from this virtual world? Is there something here worth redeeming and at least arriving at a point to agree to disagree? Discuss?

relaunches as probably the most boring, blase portal site I've ever seen and their stock goes up
? Is it just me, or does it look like they bought the site from "Al's Do It Yourself Portals"?

Either Go.com really, really sucks, or I am just unable to find where the "new" go.com design is residing. And why doesn't c|net ever put related links in their articles? Do they assume I will just stay within c|net all day long?

Thus sayeth Zeldman:
I, personally, prefer a brief description of where the link is going, rather than a long URL. Just curious, what do you think? As far as I'm concerned, there is no wrong answer or opinion on this.

Readers prefer text over graphics.
In much more scientific news a new study by Stanford University indicates that visitors to your website are significantly more likely to read the text on your website (92%) than look at your photos (64%). What do you think? Will this change the way you design your site?

Freeserve relaunched today:
Considering that the vast majority of UK internet users have this set as their homepage, what's your opinion on the new-look Freeserve homepage. (it's like MSN - no?)

5k gets wired
the .ultimate design kontest
gets notived by wired.
the result is a comment by a despaired jason
Hey, man, don't be too sad, there is far too much good webdesigners that will compete already :)
i just can't think of the shame i would have experienced after watching veen's, jason's, alice's... or granp-pa Zeldie's entries.
What makes me wonder is :: can k10k's team win ?
i'm curious to see what they can do with accessibilty and low-fat in mind, it would definitely bury the 'ala affair' that made some hot-talks weeks ago in some dark areas of the web.
another interrogation, will judges be cruel enougth to view them through some funky toy

A great story on IBM.com's redesign.
I have rarely used IBM's former site because it was so hard to find things. I just revisited, and I could find several products I own in only three links off the index page. It's a lot
