Webby Awards Nominees

Commentary by Stephen Downes

The 2007 Webby Award nominees have been announced (it's only April! what are they thinking?) and once again I've been overlooked. Well, OK, I guess I'm neither surprised nor disappointed. But something is still amiss when the nominees for 'best political blog' are the Guardian, Mother Jones, Salon and the New York Times. There is no award for 'best educational blog' but given the influence marketing departments have the nominees would probably be Blackboard, Thomson, SAP and Education Week. I am tempted to have my own awards show. I can't give awards to the highest bidder, sorry, so I would have to be random and capricious in my selections. Just like real life.

Anyhow, I'm in the Toronto airport waiting for my flight to Bogota (Colombia - yes, I'm going back for a few days) to board. Not sure what connectivity I'll have, so if you don't hear from me, don't worry, it's only temporary.
