WebEdge Wars -- Web designers vie for $10K purse

It had to happen sooner or later -- Web design and development has been turned into an extreme sport. WebEdge Wars is coming to Austin, Texas this December.

The event's coordinators have staked a prize purse of US$10,000, and are now accepting team entry submissions to participant in the event. It's being billed as a "spectator event and real-time Web design and implementation competition." The folks producing WebEdge Wars want "to introduce the general public to the horrors and excitement of Web development."

"Young kids and old-timers with the battle scars of numerous projects, constantly face the stress caused by impossible time lines, the minefields of vague requirements and the shock of bad food at irregular hours just so you and I can enjoy surfing the Web," said WebEdge "commander" Carl de Cordova. "WebEdge Wars will pit the best against the best and is sure to be excruciating good fun to watch for techies and non-techies alike."

Participants comprising five teams will be selected by entries received before October 11, 2002. Once they're assembled, each team will be given an assignment that will be kept top secret until the beginning of the event. Then they'll have 25 hours to plan, design and execute a solution. To help maintain dramatic tension, video crews and a live audience will be on hand to witness the trials and tribulations of each Web development team.

The first place prize is valued at $10,000. It'll be awarded to the best team, as judged by a panel of experts and audience voting.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
