Alot of people ask me, “How do you come up with this stuff?” or “How do you know about all of this technology stuff?”  and all I can say is by looking at websites like the one featured below.  Mashable’s annual award for the 5 Best Websites or “Websites that blew us away” is always a good place to start when looking for new tech.   The awards go to:

  1.  Best Social Media App Commercial: The New Twitter
  2.  Best Media Website Design: Vogue.com
  3.  Best HTML5 Website Design: The Wilderness Downtown
  4.  Best Music Website Design: Thesixtyone.com
  5.  Best Design Shop Website Design: Wonderwall

 The question is, … Why are these mind blowing websites or are they?  What do you think the editors of mashable.com thought was so great about these websites?  Explain your answers.

(You must use at least 5 COMPLETE SENTENCES or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    Omgh…
    The twitter bird litterally dose follow you!
    Lol, I think the reason those sites were picked is only because they appeal to your senses or the fact that they really stick out from anything else.

    I just think it’s in your head. If you believe you like something, you will eventually like it for real. I think they thought others liked and they did. They obviously trust their taste. It could or couldn’t be the best one depending on your taste.

    i think that they probably thought the technology was so advanced that they probably can’t believe it. i think that they are trying to say something like they don’t think this technology will or isn’t out. they probably are thinking to find out more about the awesome technology they are looking at.

    Their probably mind blowing websites because technology is more advanced now and tell people a lot technecial information people want to know about. What I think the mashable.com thought it was great about those websites because they probably give good information for like projects and presentations. Their good websites to go to when you need help or notes about something.

    There probably mind blowing because the websites are so much more advanced. They probably have things other things that different websites don’t have. And they were probably websites that the person really enjoyed. So he said they were amazing.

    there mind blowing because the web sites have more new cool stuff more advanced and some web sites don’t have the stuff they do have they have more and the others have less. and a lot of people like this web sites more than the other i think so that is my answer 🙂

    i think that they might only be mind blowing for only some but not for all. i think this because some people have different opinnions on every thing.so thats what i think.
    Because it might be great to them but there opinion really does not count they are one person not a community.

    They are mind blowing websites because they have so much creative stuff. I would love to have my own website. I think it’s really cool to be on these websites. I know other people probably would too. I think they like the fact of having some many people come to their website. That’s the first thing I would care about, having people on my website.

    All of those websites create all of that designs are cool with the they have come up with that’s stuff. Then one of the first rewards websites is the new twitter. The second reward website design is the vogue. com website reward. But the third website reward go to the wildness downtown reward. The fourth website go to the six t yone website reward too. But the last website reward go to the wonder wall website design reward.

    I am not really in websites as mush but I think they are cool. They thought of it for the fun of it. Mashable has a random mind and knew these websites were good. That is not really a bad thing. They are mind blowing because of the stunning designs. I really like the “The Wilderness Downtown”.

    These websites are really cool they make me want to go to them right now. I also agree that these sites are really the best of today. The videos that these sites created are really cool to. These websites are really good resources for finding out about new tech. You can find out anything about new tech because a lot of people use these sites and know about new tech themselves.

    The question is …….. Why are these mind blowing websites or are they? i think they aren’t mind blowing websites because there boring to me and some people might think they are mind blowing website and to me there just not interesting to me.

    The question is……… What do you think the editors of http://www.mashable.com thought was so great about these websites? they might of thought that it is great and there is not boring and they are mind blowing website but to me i am not interested.

    I Don’t Really Know Why The Awards Would Go To These Web Sites Because I Haven’t Been On Them Or Heard If Them Except Twitter And I Think They Liked That Because Alot Of Famous People Have Them And Its A Fast Way To Talk To People.

    Well, I’ve had a twitter once and like everyone who is on there just wants followers and stuff. I don’t like twitter, I think it’s lame but that’s just my option. I do think that with the way technology is today that most of the sites will get better :).i like them there always coming out with some thing. So yeah maybe when twitter like gets a new meaning or whatever it would be okay…

    I have no idea because this is my first time of hearing some of them and twitter I don’t get on because I think it’s dumb, but they probably would go to these websites because the are updated in more technology then other websites. And I don’t know why they are mind blowing websites. 🙂

    i think one of the reasons that these websites are mind blowing and are annually awarded is because they have good graphics and they start off like a movie and they don’t just just show exactly what they’re advertising they slowly kind of describe it i guess by showing different things and everything’s simple and they kind of give a hint on what they might be advertising.

    Maybe because it shows what the website is all about and it lets you know how it works and what it does for you . But i don’t really get on twitter. I think it is lame, and complicated.

    they are mind blowing because they are new. not many people know how to make websites like that. it is also creative and it just draws people attention to it. it’s new stuff, more advanced. those websites probably have different things that normal websites don’t.

    because these websites could have things that your looking for like vogue.com if your looking for clothes thats the site your looking for. tweeter that site can help you tell people where you are if you have a mobile besness like a hotdog stand. the wilderness download can help you fine stuff for outdoor survival. so i guess thats why there mind blowing websites.

    They are because they have all these ideas on them. I wonder how they no all of this stuff? But it is cool because all this technology were getting but some of its dumb though but still there are some good things in it. I don’t no how you figured out these random websites i guess just because you here about them a lot.

    I really think that Its up to how many people may have a account on those websites and how popular those websites may be. It’s a possibility that the editors of mash able.com see’s these websites as interesting because so many people do this and that on them and there so popular to basically catch the viewers eye so for that said it may also catch the editors of mash able.com attention to do something with those websites or join them. So they could be interested in anything of those sites or maybe just see how many users from all over the world come to them.
