A few months ago An Event Apart announced this years edition of the 10k competition, and so I set out to build another little 10k web application. And guess what? My entry is one of the Notable Mentions in the competition. That’s not a win, but I did receive some books as a price, so that’s sort of a win.
The books I received as a price proofed to be very useful when building the application (I had already bought and read them as e-books earlier in the year) and I would recommend them to anyone serious about designing and building websites.

So there, I am a Notably Mentioned Web Designer. And now go find out how far you are from the top to the world.
