Webby Awards

The winners of the Webby Awards 2006 have been released. Click on over to see who won. Many winners were not a surprise to me. The Webby awards are a nice way to find new websites of interest that I would not have found otherwise. That pretty much is all these kinds of awards are good for in my opinion.

I see many websites and blogs out there without awards that are as good if not better than the blogs or websites that have had awards. So, I really don’t put much stock in these kinds of things.

Having said that I will say that the Webby’s have grown into a kind of glamorous award ceremony not unlike the Grammy’s.  So, it is about being popular.  The websites that were selected for the finals are wonderful and popular for a reason.  I just don’t like the label “best of the web”.  And, why didn’t Dooce win anything?

The best of the web is the opinion of the judges.
Different judges…different winners.

I do, however, love finding new websites and blogs anyway I can.

    I think you are right it’s a good way of discovering new websites and blogs! The problem is that little blogs don’t have chance…
