description:

Not a huge departure from Jakob's existing site, or the style of the NN/g site. Making it a bit more personal with his picture there on the side (as the site is just as much about him as it is about his ideas...both are inextricably linked, for some people).

Added a few minor accessibility nuggets for good measure (e.g. minimal accesskey definitions) and a superbly simple print style.

Interestingly enough, although I didn't win the contest — the main problem seems to be that I was unable to test in IE/Mac as I'm missing the latter part of that mix — this entry caused quite a bit of furore, with many vocal supporters ... amongst others, none other than Vincent Flanders of Webpages That Suck fame — although this time around, he was praising the design, rather than exposing its suckiness.
