The Rest of the Mac Web (ROTMW) survey covers 41 independent Mac Web
sites not included in the recently completed Best
of the Mac Web (BOTMW) survey. Many of these were nominated by
those who wondered why they weren't included on the first survey. Some
were simply overlooked in the BOTMW survey.
This creates a very diverse list of sites - and it's still far from
exhaustive. There are probably another 100 or more independent
Mac-related sites out there.
One reason for this survey is to determine which sites should be
added to the Spring 2002 Best of the Mac Web survey.
Voting will take place from November 29 through December 9. We'll
compile the results on Monday, December 10, and plan to publish them on
Tuesday, December 11.
We attempted to contact the publisher or webmaster of the sites
listed and give them the opportunity to add a link to the survey and
have the opinions of their visitors counted. However, it's hard to find
an email contact for some sites, so we may not be able to contact every
We encourage publishers to link to the survey specifically so we can
poll a broad cross-section of Mac Web visitors. With enough sites
sending their visitors, that keeps results from getting spiked by a
strong push from a single site.
To some extent, this can't help but be a popularity contest. In
fact, that is one of two things we hoped to learn - how well known
various sites are. The other is what you, the reader, think of these
sites. This is an opinion poll, not a scientific survey.
