UI Hall of Shame

Some of you may remember the original UI Hall of Shame from the late 90s. It was a wonderful website, both inspiring and entertaining. Many people miss it, and several people out there still host copies. Our hope with this new site is to capture the spirit of the original, giving our visitors both a chuckle and some education into the world of UX Design.
