Christopher Parr, Madison web designer and the creator of the award-winning Cybermad, was awarded the “Best Site of the Year” at Boston’s MacWorld Expo 1996.
Before the media dubbed this format an “e-zine,” there was CyberMad, our online entertainment project from 1996. It received every award in the world, featured in magazines, books and on TV, and received the 1996 NetBest Award for Best Site. USA Today, Microsoft, author Douglas Coupland, Wired, C|NET, and NetGuide are only a handful of the folks who showered us with top praise.
“Parr is innovative & creative. Does a great job of generating an experience,” — Douglas Coupland.
