Bad Website Jam new terrible websites

Last week we held the Bad Website Jam, a short burst of a jam where participants reviewed extremely basic Web 1.0 HTML and markup, checked out some geocities sites, and then spent 2 hours building their own terrible mid-90s-aesthetic website. We built our sites on Neocities, which is a really beautiful project to “make the web fun.”
I want to make another Geocities. Free web hosting, static HTML only, 10MB limit, anonymous, uncensored.

We started with my slideshow on How To Make A Website which you can view here.

In total, 10 websites were built during the jam. You can check them all out posted to Bad Website Jam Neocities page here. We hope to hold more of these jams again.
