I’ll admit it, when I saw 10K Apart‘s challenge I first thought it meant to build a web app for less than $10K. In reality, the challenge is to build a web app that weighs in at less than 10K – or kilobytes.
The challenge is simple. Build something that inspires the Web and keep it as small as possible. You can cheat a bit though. You may use jQuery (which weighs in at over double the entire challenge-limit), Prototype and Typekit as your tools.
Fantastic idea. My favorite submission so far is gravity.
