Visit the new Adopt-a-Site winner, John Ford's home page, created by Jonah Zalken -- elegant, comprehensive, and absent of commercial hype.
Like Lenny and Amanda's choice to adopt a child, many people decide to launch a Home Page. Answering the call of love or money, some 10,000 new web sites open in the U.S. every week. We struggle to find our identity on a crowded plane where everyone -- giant multinational and basement cowboy -- looks alike. Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, extends her age-old power by answering Netizens' quest for identity and offering a practical antedote: put your site up for adoption! In this age of Internet, adoption means sponsorship, a life-giving link.
On the Internet, (almost) nobody can hear you scream. But everybody will SEE you if you're one of the lucky winners of the Mighty Aphrodite Adopt-a-Site Contest...
"Even if you gods, and all the goddesses too, should be looking on, yet would I be glad to sleep with golden Aphrodite."
Homer, The Odyssey, VIII, l. 341
