Win a copy of Getting Real

You know, John Oxton’s Joshuaink winning two categories in the 2006 Bloggies and 456 Berea Street winning none (though it was nominated in one category) actually made me a bit envious. Not so much of the Bloggie awards, but more of his superb tagline.

“More love than a bus full of hippies” sure sounds a lot more fun and original than “Articles and news on web standards, accessibility, and usability”. So… I guess you can tell where this is heading:

Come up with a new fabulous tagline for 456 Berea Street and get a free copy of 37signals’ book Getting Real.

A few simple rules:

  • The tagline must reflect the content and personality of this site.
  • The tagline should (but doesn’t have to) contain “web standards” and “accessibility”.
  • I pick the winner. I may ask a couple of friends for their opinion, but it’s my site, so in the end I decide.
  • You can use the comment form on this page to submit as many entries as you like.
  • You need to leave a valid email address (in the email field of the comment form) so I can contact you if you win.
  • No new submissions will be accepted after 20.00 CET on Thursday March 30, 2006.
  • I make no obligation to use the tagline that wins (in case there are no really good ones submitted).

Ok, that’s about it. May the best tagline win!

Update: That’s it. The time is up and no more entries are accepted. I’ll pick my favourite and let you know who the winner is in a couple of days or so. There are many good ones to choose from, so it won’t be easy.

Update (2006-04-02): The winner has been chosen. Read And we have a winner to find out who won.

    456 Berea Street: “Bustin’ accessibility standard rhymes, yo.”

    Honestly though - there are limitations as to how ‘out there’ one can get by including both standards and accessibility in the same sentence. John doesn’t suffer from needing his tag-line to fit his blog - it resonates well with his readers instead. Live a little and go with something that resonates with your readers. :)

    This site is an absolutely great reference and I don’t know if a clever tagline will really boost your popularity. This site has seemed to be pretty much all business since I started following it, but if this were a democracy I’d vote for #31 “Have you seen the HTML word generates”

  66. 123 web standards, 456 berea street, 789 accessibility.

  67. I do like the last one in #31…

    • 456 Berea Street: Leave your font tags at the door
    • 456 Berea Street: The only bugs are in the photos

    Yes, neither mention standards or accessibility, but I couldn’t think of something that did. It is a Friday afternoon after all.

  70. March 24, 2006 by Ivan

    456 Berea Street - Boulevard of broken Standards

    • 456 Berea Street – Like a mint pastille to the web.
    • 456 Berea Street – Refreshing the web.
    • 456 Berea Street – The street where everyones door is open.
    • 456 Berea Street – Where Content and Presentation gets separate massages by Behaviour.
    • 456 Berea Street – The web standards community’s Chuck Norris.
    • 456 Berea Street – Do not eat.
    • 456 Berea Street – Accessibility is my middle name.
    • 456 Berea Street – So I guess I’m some sort of guru, eh?
    • 456 Berea Street – A href web rel passion.
    • 456 Berea Street – Greater than less than.
  71. 456 Berea Street: No pets or salesmen

  72. If there was a vote, mine would go out to #20.

    My 2 cents:

    • “456 Berea Street - Keeping the door open”
    • “456 Berea Street - Look ma! No threshold!”
    • “456 Berea Street - Bring your own standards”
    • “456 Berea Street - Web standards aplenty, accessibility all round”

  79. this is the word on the street.

  80. spacer image spacer image table with 12 rows and 5 columns table with…

  81. The never ending story 2.0

  82. Where tag soup goes cold

  83. since the name of the site is (looks like) an address:

    1. “456 Berea Street. The address for web standards and accessibility.”
    2. “456 Berea Street. The place to go for web standards and accessibility.”
    3. “456 Berea Street. The place to be for web standards and accessibility.”
    4. “456 Berea Street. The direction to web standards and accessibility.”

    Some other ideas from my twisted mind:

    1. “456 Berea Street. Accessible Web standards” (the bare minimal requirement)
    2. “456 Berea Street. Web accessibility by standards”
    3. “456 Berea Street. The standard for Web standards and accessibility”

    want to attract more visitors:

    • “456 Berea Street. Web standards, accessibility and free iPods for everyone” :-)

    5. Accessibility soup for the web standards impaired.

    6. Displaying acessibility for all web standards to see.

    7. Standard bells for all your accessibility problems.

    8. Serving acessibility through web standards.

    Ok, I think I’ve caused enough suffering as it is.

  86. I think what we should do is to pay collectively to John Oxton for the BereaStreet tag. Its a pity he dosnt want a book though.

    • 456 Berea Street. Because numbers come first.
    • 456 Berea Street. It Doesn’t Suck™.

  88. March 24, 2006 by zcorpan

    The best thing about this tagline is that about the time you finish reading it you realise it doesn’t say anything.

  89. Let’s see if I can get lucky:

    1. “May the Web Standards be with your accessibility”
    2. “Show me the web standards”
    3. “I’ll show you my Web Standards if you show me your accessibility”
    4. “You got to ask yourself one question: Do ya use web standards? Well Do ya, punk”
    5. “Web standards means never having to say you’re sorry”
    6. “Web standards & acessibility: The stuff dreams are made of”
  90. 456 Berea St.: Making web dev as easy as 4, 5 ,6.

    456 Berea St.: The first address on the web.

    Wow, that’s a huge number of entries so far! Thanks! I really like a whole bunch of them. Keep ‘em coming though :-).

    Just a clarification, and it may make coming up with a fantastic tagline just a little bit easier: it doesn’t have to contain “web standards” and “accessibility”. If it does, that’s great, but it is not a must.

    John: Well, I think maybe £1000 is just a little bit steep. Perhaps we can make some other kind of arrangement? ;-p

    Mantis? Cricket? I’m pretty sure that’s a grasshopper….

    “Accessibility and STANDARDS, grasshopper!”

  101. 456 Berea Street : the place where web standards and accessibility cohabit.

  102. 456 Berea Street “Making the web more than just pretty pictures.”

  103. March 25, 2006 by Anonymous

    Or… 456 Berea Street - “Resources on web standards and accessibility, because the web is more than just pretty pictures.”

  104. 3 more for consideration:

    1. Giving standards and accesibility a good rogering - You might have to be british to understand that

    2. Sod Web 2.0 here comes Web 4.5.6

    3. Getting Real with Accesibility

  105. ‘The street that hippies most love and ex-hippies most access.’ Ok, sorry..

    ‘Finding grounds between geeks and common man’

    ‘Fighting its way for a more accessible web’

    ‘The site with an url so complex but yet surprisingly memorable’ (I haven’t bookmarked bereastreet yet, I am typing it all the way, all the time, and I am not even selecting it from the history list on my Opera. I feel urged to type it all the time.)

  106. Here’s my advice based on the comments you’ve gotten so far:

    • Don’t go for something humoristic, beacause your content isn’t.

    • Don’t go for something based on John’s tagline :P

    • Go for something short and to the point that describes what you do.

    • Have the tagline include the words “accessibility” and “web standards”.. because.. quite frankly, that is what you write about — why make the content harder for new visitors to distinguish than it has to be? .. or even recurring ones?

    • Don’t make it something only a handful of frequent visitors understand.

    But what do I know? — I like: “Articles and news on web standards, accessibility, and usability” :O

  107. it doesn’t have to contain “web standards” and “accessibility”.

    In that case:

    456 Berea St. - No need to knock.

  108. “All about web standards - just around the corner. by Dutchkid”

    Is my favorite :)

  109. This one slipped past me .. the taglines in #13 are clever, yet meaningful.
