So here we have the 2nd Annual Open Web Awards winners. If you don't know about the Open Web Awards, here is the skinny from their site: "Open Web Awards is the only multilingual international online voting competition that covers major innovations in web technology. Through an online nominating and voting process, the Open Web Awards recognizes and honors the top achievements in 26 categories."
Question #1: Geez. How did so many of these slip past my radar? I need to do some serious research.
Question #2: Is is shocking to you or not that a competition that deals with "major innovations in web technology" has really only one site that I could construe as a "learning" site (eHow)? What about Udutu?
Anybody else's app I'm missing? Are we as a community of so little commercial or creative worth that we need to just accept that the learning/training community will forever be locked out of contests like this?
This is not a rhetorical question. I am looking for an answer here. Seriously. How do we view ourselves as a community in relation to some of these other communities represented by these winners?
