The 12 winners of the 2002 Canadian New Media Awards have been announced! A selection committee of 126 industry professionals completed the challenging task of selecting the winners and finalists from among the nominations received. And they definitely had their work cut out for them this year - the number of nominations received in 2002 increased 50% over the number of nominations received last year! Dan Zen has won the Programmer of the Year. Awards

Most inventive and unashamedly crazy site on the net. I have spent hours here lost in the bliss of mindless fun and zen possibilities. Thanks for the site, we need more like it - Maura

We compare Dan Zen to a magician whose show consists of turning his audience into magicians

How to describe Dan Zen? Ever play "Hangman" as a kid to pass the time? If Dan Zen had been around, time would have flown. Its chock full of random little "games" like "The Grim Reaper's Age Guesser," "Moustache Mysteries," "YesUmNo," "Web Ouija" and that's just the tip of the Dan Zen iceberg.

they're snowed out, your thee numb burr won sigh tout their. key pit go wing. yore grate!

... I love this site's innocence and charm. As El Bu, the two-headed barnacle says, "We love you. Dan Zen is for you."

At last a place where I know that mine is not the only really warped mind on earth. Creative, fun, stimulating...heck itīs got it all. You dudes at Dan Zen RULE!!!


The Grim Reaper Age-Guesser
Here's my just-for-fun link of the day: the Grim Reaper Age-Guesser. You answer 15 simple questions (including: How many years has it been since you last hopped?) and based on your answers, the computer calculates your age. It said I was 31, and I've just turned 32, so I was properly amazed. Give it a shot.

From the Fresh-Hell site: "I totally swiped this link from someone, and now I can't remember who. If you recognize it, e-mail me so I can give you proper credit. Anyway, it's the Grim Reaper age guesser and it got mine right! I don't know how it works, but it's cool."
Thanks for producing a web site so entertaining that we could feature it on Network TV and Net Talk Live!

Dan Zen's stylish online mind games: more stimulating than several pokes in the brain with a sharp stick!

I always like your games...
Did you know that your little pamphlets were on my ledge at the front of the cafe?
If so, there are no more. All the customers took them!

Cheers, Daniel at Insomnia Cafe is wonderful: Funny, thought-jabbering, instinctively right, easy on the bandwidth. Now I know who I am, thanks to Dan Zen.

Josh -

One of the best sites I've had pleasure to stumble upon. I always seem to find something new each time. The design is brilliant and I'm still trying to figure out how Dan did some of these things. Guess I'll check out the materialism pages.

What a hell of a web site...
Sooooooo what planet did you fall from? I think it's great!!!!


After receiving notice that I had been invited to a blimp race some months ago, I checked out the site. I had some misgivings at first, never having had any experience in cyberfantasy or interactive internet creativity. Within hours, I was hooked. Dan, you've done some incredible things here, and have inspired others to exceed their grasp. Thanks, brother. I'm looking forward to whatever the future brings in your community.
