Best Site Mike's Never Seen
August 18, 2005 8:34 AM   Subscribe

Mike Davidson is giving away an iPod to the respondent that posts the best site that he's never seen. Excellent stuff to be found in the responses so far, with New York Conversations (previously mentioned here in the blue) the one that I'm currently checking out. Legal Notice: I'm not Mike Davidson and have never met nor communicated with him. I'm also not employed by Apple, but I do love their products.

There are enough good links there to keep the pickiest of surfers busy for a couple of hours. And it's great that descriptions of the sites are limited to one sentence or the submitter is disqualified.

I'd forgotten about New York Converstions:

Latina: Who you think got a bigger dick, A-Rod or Jeter?
Black chick: Thats a good one. I'm gonna say Jeter cause he half black.
Latina: True, true...
Black chick: Tiger Woods is half black too, but I bet he got a little rice dick.

Food for thought, indeed.

...or I can steal an iPod off the subway. Not that I would, of course, but what makes Mike Davidson think he's so special?

The reason people run to Fark, Plastic,, and um

Woah, sorry. Previewing! The reason these sites exist is because few have found that ONE site.
Dangling a carrot in fromt of others so they can do the work for you seems a tad disingenuous, to say the least.

As a one shot deal, it seems to be working out for him given some of the links that he's collected there. Not only humorous and entertaining but also some really nice design work to be found there. I think that's because it's a one shot deal (one contest, one entry per person, one line description), he's not having to deal with a bunch of crap links.

I've nothing against him doing it at all. The problem I see, as a punter visiting that page, is that I may have to wade through 4 truckloads of swill to find something I like. Which of course is my problem sooooooo....I probably won't be checking them. Too much work. But if you go through them all and pick out the best one, post it to MeFi tomorrow, ok? (unless of course the best there isn't the best of the web)

Wow, who knew a website was worth an iPod? Oh, the perils of discretionary income. AMUSE US, THE UPPER MIDDLE CLASS PRIVELEDGED CHILDREN OF WHITE FOLKS! Ain't no problems you cain't fix by throwing a little money at 'em.

Yeah, Eideteker. That guy has some nerve giving stuff away. I mean, just think, he could have sold that iPod and fed twelve starving orphans for 23.7 days.

Man, we're never going to solve the worlds problems if people keep giving stuff away -- that's it kiddies, no more Christmas for you guys -- it's all Greenpeace thank you notes from here on.

I love how many people are nominating totally obvious or old-as-dirt websites for a "sites I've never seen" contest. Homestarrunner? (twice)? Wikipedia??

This list is also the best justification of MetaFilter's no-self-link rule I've ever seen.

not that jperkins is self-linking, of course; that some of the contributors to that list are, and their contributions are noticeably inferior to the average. </unnecessary clarification>

That fire station site is totally going to win. They have pictures of old fire engines and stuff.

Well, it certainly makes Mefi, BoingBoing and Blort look good, in that I have seen most of the sites linked to before on one of those link-tastic sites. So, Mike better not be a reader too or else the competition will actually be quite difficult.

^ or easy since he's already seen most and can eliminate them the ones he's familiar with..

I just crapped my pants looking at the site!! also was a fave of mine that went down but apparently, it's back up again..

Bah. But it's an iPod Shuffle. Not an actual bells-and-whistles iPod.

Bah, I say again.

Hmm. Somebody linked to Bobby Burgess. Cool. The only blog/journal thingy that I really, really like.
