Last month Slashdot held a very open-ended competition for a redesign of the long overdue layout. I had initially thought I’d enter but laziness took the best of me and I never completed my design. The winner was Alex Bendicken who created a pretty clean and snazzy design. CmdrTaco estimates that the new design will go live in a couple of days…say goodbye to the eyesore that was the circa 1990’s layout.
The winner of the contest will be receiving a sweet laptop (valued at up to $4000) plus the bragging rights of redesigning one of the world’s most popular tech/geek blogs. Good times. Over the course of the contest I had been hoping Peter Lada’s design would win out, but Alex’s is just as snazzy (with fewer frills) so I’m happy.
