As Mal just said, "Great idea" David!
I have reservations about publicly pointing out "Ugly Businesses" since we want the EC forums to be perceived as a Friendly Entrepreneur Community
Rather than pointing out the ugliness, perhaps we could spin it differently. For example, in our Toastmasters public speaking club, when we give feedback to fellow members after they have presented a speech project, we highlight their strengths, and we suggest an area they could work on improving. We don't just say what needs improving; we recommend ways to do it.
David, if you would like to elaborate on how to organize a "Beautiful Online Business of the Year" award program, I'm all for hearing your ideas!
