Apparently the Golden Spider Awards are upon us once more.
As a fully fledged member of the web design industry [and founder of Silver Haired Internet Technology] I am now qualified to comment on these matters.
First of all, I have to admire the new Golden Spiders Website. It is perfect for boiling an egg.
To do this, all you have to do is connect to the Internet, using your dial-up connection. Place your egg in the boiling water. By the time the site is loaded, your egg will be nicely cooked. Apparently it takes about 3 minutes and 20 seconds. Perfect!
Now, the Golden Spider Awards have long been criticised for being elitist and nepotistic. You actually have to pay to enter, and you have little chance of winning unless you are one of the Big Boys. Their standards are, at the very best, highly suspect, and their judging criteria are more closely guarded than the rites of the Freemasons.
I propose a more open system.
I propose the Golden S.H.I.T. Awards.
Yes. Silver Haired Internet Technology is prepared [at great personal trouble and expense] to organise the new awards system.
I have yet to work out the exact criteria for these awards, but I think there will be global interest. Judging will be strict and the award winners will be truly outstanding in their field.
And who wouldn’t want to proudly display the award logo on their site? –
