Justin Hall's personal site growing & breaking down since 1994

watch overshare: the links.net story contact me

summer 2001 advertizing on Links.net

Chromatron
Friend Sean Barrett advertises his small, smart Windows game.

Blue Mag
A "low-fi" lit magazine, intent on breaking taboos it seems.

Harlem.org
Finally, old friend WB coughs up an ad banner for his jazz history site.

Wireless Game Review
Matthew asked me to write for him. I didn't have an article, but I wanted to support his magazine by running his ad banner.

Touch The Ogre Cave
After weeks of cadjoling, Colin Adams finally came back from travelling to make an ad banner for the web journal of offline/paper/unplugged gaming news, run by Allan Sugarbaker with his friends and family.

Neuro Net Recordings
A bloke from Japan, friend of a friend and links.net reader, sent in this banner and link to a web project - free downloadable Japanese techno music. The music is encoded in an open source online music format, so I've included a link to the OGG plugin for Winamp to go along with it.

Texas Monkey
Ryan Junell done TV work and film work I'm proud to be a part of. This is his web site, with short films, articles, photographs, interviews, etc.

Mindex
After a few months of this I threw up an ad banner for something in my site - the meta-web index.

e-sheep web comix
"Everyone gets everything he wants." I harassed Patrick for weeks to promote his e-sheep site here, and then he sent me this blazing twitching ad banner.

Parallel Lives
Brent sent me this banner for his personal project celebrating his marriage.

Be Brave, Bold Robot
Ben has been a long time correspondent and summer 2001 friend and Japanese classmate. He's had his own web site for some time, a journal with many of his photos. Here's his ad banner, which was my first experience with Adobe Imageready; I helped him make the animated banner from some photos he took of the graffitied street sign that inspired his domain.

Surblimity
Here's a banner from Jackie, with a resonant web page. She goes to a school I have attended; we've barely met.

All you need is Trust, and a little bit of Pixie Dust!
I ran into Peter Pan at the Webby Awards; afterwards I solicited an ad by email. He sent this oddsized one as part of a large emailing to his new San Francisco friends.

Swinney.org
Swinney.org is a collaborative web posting bonanza, frequented by many people I've enjoyed in person. This results from an open call for Swinney.org banners. This one is by peter.

elly
Friend Elly agreed to send in a banner after a very small bit of coaxing. The finger might say something about that coaxing.

Home of The Underdogs
This is the other most useful site for researching obscure computer games. This site has affirmed my nostalgia and curiousity with information repeatedly. Long live Home of the Underdogs.

Lincoln Park Trixie Society
LP Trixie: I don't know these people, and they're serious enough about their work that it's getting hard to tell what their intentions are. Still I enjoy something so thoroughly weird as this; of course I think a large part of the appeal of this site to me stems from my childhood scampering around these very neighborhoods.

Cybracero
I met this guy Alex at a panel on the web during a film festival; he was smart and high energy, and his online work blew my mind. Originally, he submitted this banner for my pron page; I just copied it over.

The Web Today
These folks sent me a strange banner to promote a site that seems to be about online media awareness. I'm a bit confused but I don't want to ask too many questions here - I get the feeling we might agree on many things.

Green Home
I saw Axil at the Webby Awards. I was happy and amazed to see that he was still running an online ecological goods catalog site. Also, he still had a brave fire in his eyes, and a taste for playful informed abstration. I'm glad to support that kind of attitude.

Mindjack
Donald has been working to get me to contribute to his site for a long time now. Some day I will, until then I'm glad to support his efforts with an ad banner.

Mirror Project
Soon after Derek contributed his ad, his girlfriend Heather sent in a banner for her Mirror Project, where people take pictures of themselves in mirrors and Fray Day 5
Derek emailed me when he saw I was running ads, reminding me that he was one of the original paying advertisers. I was glad to post another ad for him - this ad promotes a live storytelling event he will be conducting in September.

Quish.org
This gentleman emailed me and asked if I would promote his old school hip-hop net radio station. My pleasure!

Garrett County Press
GK contributed an ad banner for his publishing company, promoting not just the book Little Tenemant on the Volga, but an entire weltanschauung.

Radio Free Steve
Ryan also sent me a banner to promote his 80s sci-fi movie "Radio Free Steve." Made in the style of a movie made in the 80s, but made at the turn of the millenium, this film has won some praise. I still haven't seen it yet, though folks say I have a brief cameo, riding in a shoppping cart.

Web Zine NY
Being that Ryan ran webzine last year, and was advising this year, I asked him for an ad banner to promote the event coming up in July. He sent me a list of a few, I chose the Elian-themed banner. Later Jason McCabe Calacanis saw the ad and thought that I was running the event. Something like that.

Moby Games
Most of the time, whenever I have to research some aspect of traditional or aged video gaming, Moby Games serves me well. Begun as a labor of love by Jim Leonard and his buddy, its users are growing it.

Demon Box
Svante and DemonBox were the first to come through with an advertisement. I'd just visited this wild and lovely place, so I was glad to have some part of them flashing in my space online.

If you enjoy having your ad here, or you like seeing the ads of other people, you can feel free to send your hard earned money to me. I promise that I will squander it heedlessly and write about it on Links.net.
