I'm going way out on a limb. BEST WEB SITE I'VE VISITED: http://www.buildabear.com. (And, related: buildabear.com/buildaparty.) LOVE IT! Passes all the tests: ENGAGING!! EASY TO USE!! INFORMATIVE AS HELL!! INTERACTIVE AS ALL GET OUT!! COOL!! FUN!! (And so on.) In 1997, after a grand 25-year career at May Department Stores, Maxine Clark opened her first Build-A-Bear Workshop location in the St Louis Galleria. Seven years later, she's heading a $300 million firm growing like Topsy, at home and abroad! I'll keep heading out that limb: (1) Best Web site. (2) Grand Prize: Sell a SUPER-COOL ENGAGING EXPERIENCE ... not merely a "service." (3) Nominee ... Coolest Company around. (That's two for me in a month: Infosys in Biz to Biz markets; Build-A-Bear Workshops in retail-consumer-experiences. Wow!)
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
