Who is the best of the web?

Well the news is in. I did not win a Webby.

Shortly I will have all the bits gathered to win a webby: Blogger, Flickr, Cell phone posting, My fine EOS 20D and a fantastic sense of humour (I will either buy the last one or copy shamelessly).

For those of you not in the know (really - call yourself a blogger - the Webbies are the Oscars of the Internet. They say so, or rather they say that the NYT says so. And if the NYT says so, it must be so) - the Webbies are the awards for outstanding Internet content.

Now it is good to see some of my favourites won some Webbies. I do believe that Jamie Oliver is busy working on a dedication to me for my dedication to him. Zach Braff (Garden State, Scrubs) is busy penning a movie about a love affair between me and Natalie Portman for all the excitement I've generated about Garden State - not on my site, verbally. OK, don't believe me. Just wait 'til I get to kiss her on screen. Oi, I'll even kiss her off screen if she's shy. Did I tell you I have a thing for Natalie Portman? I do.

The major Webbies go to:

  • The Webby Lifetime Achievement Award: Former Vice President Al Gore

  • Webby Person of the Year: Craig Newmark of craigslist

  • The Webby Artist of the Year: The Kleptones

  • The Webby Breakout of the Year Award: Flickr

  • I swear, Flickr is just something else. To see why, go and look at this guy. 25 years old from Cape Town.

    The full list of Webbies can be found here.

    Not to worry. There's always next year.

    It is the question said...

    Yeah, by then I hope to have an awesome sense of humour...
