So You Think You Can Surf the Web?

Thumbnail image for trailblazers_2.jpg

A German design student launched a web surfing competition called Trailblazers earlier this month in Stuttgart. Starting and ending websites are specified; the winner is the one who travels from one to the other with the fewest number of clicks. No search engines, no holds barred! The event was live and held in meatspace, as documented in the video below. The next edition of the competition will be held at ARS Electronica in Austria.

The introductory instruction is somehow deeply satisfying to my inner nerd: "Surf the classic way from amazon to pirate bay." (The classic way!)
