the world's most boring websiteabout us
the design is plain-jane vanilla. almost everything is white and gray (a few things, such as visited links, are black; some color and sepia-tone photos are also on this website). the font is your standard arial (okay, except for our site's title on every page), links are underlined to distinguish them from other text. there's only one headline style (the bold site name at the top of each page), very little bold (just the site name, as mentioned before), very little italics are used, most fontage is the same size, etc. hey, it's gotta be tired and boring.
we created this website because while there are plenty of boring websites out there, they fall into one of three camps: either they're just hideously designed (and hideous design may be bad, but it's not necessarily boring); or the authors of the website didn't quite get it right due to laziness (in a few cases, the website owners admit as much); or they're unintentionally boring (i.e. they were created to cover some arcane, dull topic the authors were thrilled about).
we wanted to do boring right. it takes hard work to get it right, and believe us when we tell you, this was no small feat. but we think we did a decent job.
we hope you agree.
and in case we haven't made this "about us" page uninteresting enough, we've added two elements found on many a boring corporate website that puts most visitors to sleep: vision and mission statements!
Our vision is ultimately to bore every web surfer in the world at least once in his, her or its lifetime, and to do our part to eradicate the scourge of insomnia, one visitor to this website at a time.
Our mission is boring every web surfer who visits here and curing insomnia.
