The best entry in the history competition?




The entries of the History of topics related to Frihost competition are now visible (or should be at least).

Which ones do you like and more importantly, why (or why not)? I'll select the winner by taking into account the reasons why people like certain entries.

The criteria to judge are the following:
Quote:
Essays are judged by uniqueness, originality, interestingness and style (meaning how easy to read and understand, funny facts, ...).


Two note., Bikerman has stated that he does not participate for winning the domain. So you may give comments for his entry, but he won't win. Second note is the removed entries (actually entry here). The entry of Adri was removed because it was still a draft at the end of the competition.

Blaster's and Bluedoll's (B&B Smile are the two that spoke to me the most. Because of their originality and very simple and easy to understand presentation. Both obviously have a passion for their subject, which enabled them to present it with plenty of insights. Blaster is obviously very familiar with Frihost's history, and he managed to do it very simply, with plenty of information but easy to digest style. I learned a lot from it. I know that Bluedoll has always spoken about a "sense of community" in some of her posts, so this topic must have been a natural for her. Her essay was well written and reflects an understanding of her subject matter also in easy to understand language.

It would be difficult for me to choose which one of the two is the better one, if there were a scoring, I would have scored them exactly the same.

Thanks for the insight Dean I'm glad you enjoyed reading it. I wish I just had more time to write it but college is taking up my life right now.

Difficult.
Here's my brief critique of the entries:
obviously all deserve credit for taking the time and trouble to write an essay, but to pick a winner one has to be critical, so:

Bluedoll's essay is short on dates, has some confusing chronology and misses out the most important early on-line community - UseNet.
Blaster seems to have most of the important dates, but you would be a better judge than me on that Smile
LBK's entry starts OK but then gets confused between spam and phishing and doesn't really give any indication of the size of the problem or how it has grown (spam far outnumbers attempted phishing attacks - tens of trillions per year).
saratdear's entry doesn't really cover the history of scams at all and is more of a list of famous scams.
Deanhill's entry concentrates more on definitions than history, and misses the origin of the term Internet Addiction Disorder, but otherwise seems a good treatment of the topic.

All in all I'd say Deanhill's entry is the best on offer.
