3 favorite spots to surf bad Web design

SUMMARY: No summary available.
If you're like me, no matter how your company site is improved, the glass is always half empty and all you see is the stuff that's not as good as it could be. So, today why not go look at some really, truly awful Web sites, and then you can think, "Hey, we're not so bad after all."

My three favorite spots to surf bad Web design:

1. The Web Awards-- Sad but true. These awards are the result of creative Web designers run amuck. Loooong Flash intros with pounding canned music, navigation bars that use cutesy icons instead of obvious text terms, black or colored backgrounds with white text ... you know the drill. (BTW: yes I did ask them if a usability or marketing expert were included on the panel of judges. No reply.)

2. Web Pages That Suck and Bad Designs are usability guru Jakob Neilsen's favorite sites to surf for awful design.

3. pDom's 10 Worst Celebrity Sites reveals the ugly side of Hollywood. (Feel really sorry for Maureen McCormick.)
