The 2008 Eddies Are GO!

Various authors, edublogs.org, Nov 11, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

So the edublog awards are on again for this year, complete with a prize system guaranteed to skew the results - "the winner of each category will get a years free Edublogs Campus subscription for themselves or their institution." This, of course, is a prize that is basically useless to a person working outside an institution. Accept the prize and either blow off your blog after a year or start paying edublogs.org. If we are to have awards in our field, we need awards that aren't tied to some company or sponsor. And it is really bad form for that sponsor to publicly announce his own nominations (not that I don't appreciate the nomination).
