Webby Awards don’t really reflect the web anymore

May 10, 2006

The winners of the 2006 Webby Awards have been announced, and it appears as though the blogosphere doesn’t exist….but of course it does, but bloggers aren’t really up for the $500 USD entry fee, and hence we get the usual corporate sites winning awards, and Arianna Huffington’s Huffington Post (not really representative of the blogosphere is it?…any one up for making up a George Clooney post? 🙂 ) despite the fact that web eyeballs are looking elsewhere.

Wired and Investor.com take a similar line, which is heartening in knowing I’m not the only one who seems to think this.
