The nominee lists for the 2005 Koufax Awards continue to appear, although I don't think voting has opened yet. The most recent category is Best Expert Blog. Sadly, our hopes for a respectable bronze medal in this category have been dashed, as we apparently did not make the short list (despite being, you know, nominated a couple of times). But that's okay, since we did get a nomination for Best New Blog (where we will doubtless be crushed), and more importantly because there are a passel of great blogs that did get nominated. Go check them out, and be prepared to vote! Update: Never mind. We were nominated after all, just a little computer glitch. So, that bit about a "passel of great blogs"? Rubbish. Those are terrible blogs. Uninspired hackwork. An embarassment to the very idea of blogging. Really, we should win by process of elimination, and it's up to you to provide the honest votes needed to ensure that just is served. (Actually, in this crowd CV will be lucky to finish in the top half. We are happy to be the George Clooney of the blogosphere.)
