We decided to retire the Weekly Award for a few reasons.
When I get an e-mail including a URL, I usually visit the
site and check things out. I decided that I find it much
more enjoyable going to visit a site with the "Critic's
Eye" turned off.
This way, I don't have the little voice in the back of my
mind saying, "Is this the best site I have seen lately?"
Over the past two years since BNB started, I have seen
a tremendous improvement in everything from huge corporate
sites to college student homepages. I think everyone is
pretty much self-movivated to create the best that they can.
I am certain that nobody will lose sleep over this. Just keep
creating the best sites that you can. Most important of all-
have fun doing it.

BNB'S WEEKLY PICK!
ABOUT THIS AWARD
Each day, the BigNoseBird picks its way through the flotsam
that the surf drops on the shores of the Web to seek out
a tasty morsel. Weekly, the brightest pearl will be featured.
POSTMODERNPUNK.COM is a very nicely designed site, done
in a rather avante garde style. It is colorful, bold, and
attractive- yet seriously missing actual graphics. Amazing
what one can do with well designed tables.
The site features a bi-weekly magazine, some nice Shockwave
slide shows, music, and plenty of original material on a wide variety
of subjects- especially those relating to social issues.
Nigel Hall did a great job on this site, please take a few minutes
to go and have a look around.
The Web is a big place and I can't possibly see all of it! You
are welcome to submit either your site or a site you like. This
will obviously greatly increase the odds of BigNoseBird finding
the site. All submitted sites will be visited. Maybe not on
the same day!
The winning site will be notified by e-mail, and will have its
week as the Tasty Morsel.
