You thought the Webbys were dumb? The International Web Page Awards: US$125 to enter, judges self-selected ("Check here if you would like to be a Judge") and the best part: IWPA site created and designed by Matt Wolf (fast cars, hot babes and screaming guitars) who also happens to win something each year.

(I also bought myself a Masters' degree in Electricology from "International Accredited University" (non-accredited) for US$125 once.)

I'm happy to report this web site does not function correctly on my Mac. Maybe there is a God after all.

Rated by 'Wired Magazine' as one of the
top 5 Internet awards in the world!

They're shitting us right?

Oh well, you can expect pretty much anything from Wired these days...

That Flash is such a sad-ass joke.

It's worth mentioning that the Wired article is from May 2000...

mkelley, bjgeiger: looking at the code, i guess it's because he's an idiot who knows next to nothing about building a site correctly.

Wow, I didn't think it was possible to invest Tiffany Shlain with an aura of credibility.

Holy shit, that is the ugliest page I have ever, ever laid eyes on.
