jQuery - New Wave JavascriptWe admit it. We dig jQuery (that’s old skool dig — not in a web 2.0 way).

Sure, Prototype, MochiKit and MooFX have their minions, but for its slim lines, its power and its simple but elegant syntax, jQuery is where it’s at for us.

If you are yet to encounter the benefits of jQuery, check the growing list of tutorials and demos available on the site.

However, if you’re already a convert and simply want to help, jQuery creator John Resig has set a contest with fabulous prizes and everlasting glory to the lucky winner. Simply design the best ‘Powered by jQuery button as judged by the jQuery general community.

There aren’t many restrictions. It should be a maximum size of 173px x 31px, it should include the jQuery hat device and entries close on November 3rd.

Whip it good!I’ve already submitted my entry but I must admit it’s hard go past any design that blends JavaScript and Devo.
