When I first started checking out ProjectCool a few years ago, I noticed Sightings, their daily award for top-notch sites on the web. I dreamed of someday designing something appealing/useful enough to make the cut. Today happens to be that day. MetaFilter was awarded the ProjectCool Sightings award. It's not that big of deal though, there wasn't any fanfare or anything. I found out I won it somewhat accidentally, when I noticed the traffic load suddenly go sky high at midnight.
Still, it's nice that my little dream from a few years ago came true today.
