cool site of year invite

So I've been invited to attend Infinet's Cool Site of the Year awards ceremony in San Francisco later this month. No, I wasn't nominated...this year all the previous CSotY winners were invited to participate in the nomination process (I confess I didn't because of lack of time, I am so Bad). Anyway, the invitation promises: "This is your chance to meet the cream of the Internet crop. To
mingle with the most talented designers, programmers and writers on the
web. Oh, and lest we forget, you can imbibe and eat to your little
heart's content." The eating part appealed to me, of course, but alas, I'm afraid I must decline this year. SITE OF THE DAY: Cool Site of the Day - the original "cool site". Inkspot was CSotD on April 21, 1995. It was actually CSotD through to the 22nd because Glenn Davis felt sorry for me at the time...his server was having problems so some people couldn't get through. In spite of the glitch, about 20,000 people visited my site that weekend (!). I remember waking Jeff up early that morning when I realized what had happened. In spite of his crabby Night Person Nature, he was technonerdboyish enough to be impressed (until he fell asleep again, that is).
