That’s right – just you, your mouse and a whole sea of hyperlinks.
That was the challenge levelled to participants of Trailblazers, a web browsing competition that recently held its inaugural contest in Stuttgart, Germany. Participants were challenged to “Surf the classic way from Amazon to Pirate Bay”.
From a chart posted on the Trailblazers site (which is designed, we’ll say, in a “neo-classical” web style), it seems as though an individual named “tobi” earned the old-school surfer crown.
The next Trailblazers competition will take place on September 3 at Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria. Make sure your peripherals are regulation ahead of time. [Trailblazers via TodayandTomorrow via The Atlantic]
