Webby Awards - Online Oscars

Cue my Gwyneth Paltrow speech

Got home to find the following in the post, dated 25th May (obviously Air Mail isn't particularly timely right now!):

Dear Annie

Congratulations! On behalf of the
International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, it is our pleasure to officially notify you that London Underground Tube Blog is a Webby Worthy Award winner as part of the 9th Annual Webby Awards.

This is a tremendous honor, as less than 20% of the sites entered in the Webby Awards were deemed worthy of this distinction. With over 4,300 sites entered from all 50 states and over 40 countries, your work truly represents the best of the web. You should be extremely proud of your accomplishment..."

And it continued with details of a plaque I could order and how to maximise the PR impact of the achievement.

So thanks to co-contributers, Neil n Geoff obviously (no mean feat contributing when you're running daily blogs of your own, so thanks guys). I'd also like to thank the many of you who all actively comment each day, and to all of you who read the blog and don't comment, (commenting isn't everyone's thing and I still love looking at the stats) and thanks to all of you who link to the blog or add it to your blog roll.

I'd also like to thank Bill Gates for providing free webspace to host the pictures through MSN Groups, Blogspot for ignoring my many emails to try to fix the slow loading in IE, Firefox for providing a browser that makes the blog load in lightening speed, Haloscan for providing the commenting software and of course The London Underground for being so, err, well, er.... entertaining.

Thanks guys, we couldn't have done it without you. And I can add it to the growing list of almost wons (Bloggies 2004, Bloggies 2005, Guardian British Blog Awards 2003) this blog has almost won.
