Who Comes Up With These Awards?
from the ok,-ok,-I'll-post-it dept
It's not at all clear who determines what "awards" there are for websites. There already are the webbies and the bloggies and lots of other stuff. Every once in a while we get nominated for other awards and I never know how serious they are -- so I rarely mention them. While I have no idea who's behind the Weblog Awards, or what the deal is, a lot of people seem positively pissed off at us for not mentioning that we were nominated -- suggesting maybe there are some people who take these things a bit too seriously. I'm not quite sure I understand the anger, but, fine, we are among a bunch of other sites nominated for the 2004 Weblog Awards, in the Best Tech Blog category. If you like to vote in those types of things, then feel free. Right now, it basically looks like a proxy fight for which site is more popular between Gizmodo or Engadget -- which seems sort of like a Coke/Pepsi type battle: some people say they can tell the two apart, but I think they're lying.
