It's also interesting to through the 1994 Best of the Web Awards.
A fairly large fraction of the top awarded sites are actually still online, although in many cases you have to do some sleuthing with Google to find them because the original links are long broken. Some examples of still-extant top-award sites include:
A few top-award sites that no longer seem to exist in any form (often not even in the Internet Archive) include:
- The Xerox PARC Map Viewer ("Best Use of Interaction" and "Most Technical Merit") (front page at archive.org)
- NCSA's What's New on the WWW ("Most Important Service Concept") (as of today, JWZ has now resurrected Netscape's What's New page, which includes an archive of NCSA's back to 1993!)
- Eric Richard's Sports Information Service ("Best Entertainment Site", moved to netgen.com, which now is a redirect to spss.com)
