The “I won a contest” hyperlink roundup post
As I previously mentioned, I won a kottke.org contest. I’ve received my prize – a 1955-1978 History of Rock and Roll poster from historyshots.com. I thought it was the best poster they offered. The other posters weren’t designed especially well. Someone should let them know that it’s ok to use some photography in their posters to liven up the design and keep it interesting. I’d be happy to fully redesign their posters for them (at the right price, right?).
Additionally, this has been blogged about in a variety of places, from wellknown to unknown:
Boingboing.net – Some seriously big-time readership.
nationalgeographic.com – I wonder if I’ll make it into the magazine (no chance)!
MSNBC’s Cosmic Log – It’s not network, but it’s damn close.
Canadian Broadcasting Association – Not bad, eh?
Columbus Dispatch – Ohio! (Ohio, Ohio, Ohio)
Something in Icelandic! – I have to automatically assume it’s Bjork who wrote this, because nobody else even speaks Icelandic, as far as I know.
A runner-up of the contest – Awesome entry that had a great chance to win.
Andrea Harner – The honorable mention award
Soreeyes.org – Not entirely sure what “too topical” really means.
Ex-Cathedra – A nice blog entry.
