St. Louis Web Site Awards We Won!
The Commonspace won first place for Best St. Louis-Oriented Site in the STLWEBDEV competition. There were a total of 256 nominations in ten categories. The judges had this to say: "A near perfect use of the web to provide editorial and other content of local interest. The site's articles pull you in and exploration of the different sections is entertaining." blush :-)
