Wired: Webbys: Hugs, Kisses, and Glam

“Slashdot.org, a crowd favorite if the enthusiastic howls from
the crowd was any indication, turned out to be one of the night’s
big winners, despite losing to Café Utne in the Community
category during the live Webby ceremony.

“Slashdot’s fervent fans turned in enough online votes to
give the site the People’s Voice Awards in both of the categories
for which it was nominated: Best Community Site and Best News

“It was a great cap to the day for Slashdot, which had suffered
the ignominy of a denial of service attack earlier, as well as a
demand from Microsoft to remove links to a discussion forum. “

“…Technical Achievement winner Google.com also drew a big hand
by sending up employees fresh from a company hockey game. Still in
roller blades and uniforms, no less than two of the reps slipped
and fell resoundingly onstage. “
