Best Webzine

TIE: smileandactnice.com; collusion.org

Not just another Web site-for-grrls, Smileandactnice.com, created by former Chronicle staffers Jen Scoville and Louisa Brinsmade, has grrrl-attitude as focused as a surgical laser and visuals that are vibrant and sharply welcoming. But it's the crystalline writing and the variety of topics that sets this e-location apart from the rest of the cybercrowd. You know you wanna check them out, regardless of your chromosomes. Collusion.org's an edgy cabal of net-savvy punks and vinyl-scratching, video-gaming malcontents, laying it down in no uncertain terms with a lot of dark backgrounds and urban-toothed graphics and in-your-face-yo rants. Just the sort of thing a testosterone-fueled meat puppet dreams of stumbling onto. Runners-up include Roboninja.com, Clockworkstorybook.com, and Queerios.com.
