Tomorrow night in New York, the Huffington Post will receive two Webby Awards for Best Political Blog -- one chosen by the Webby judges and one by the public. (Thanks to all who voted for HuffPost.)
Others taking home Webbys on Tuesday include Apple (Best Use of Video), Flickr (Best Community site), Peace Corps (Best Government site), and Passive-AggressiveNotes.com (Best Weird site). In addition, Will.i.Am is being honored as Webby Artist of the Year and Stephen Colbert as Webby Person of the Year.
One of the fun quirks of the Webbys is that award winners only get five words for their acceptance speeches. Last time we won, mine was: "Darlings, make blogs, not war."
Other 5 worders have included: Al Gore: "Please don't recount this vote"; Prince: "Everything you think is true"; PostSecret: "I know all your secrets"; and Wikitravel: "No longer a lonely planet."
I'm trying to decide what our five words should be this time -- and I'd love to get your input. Below are some suggestions we've gotten (many from the delightfully deranged minds at 23/6). Give them a read and let me know which you like best. Or offer up a few options of your own in the comments section (if I end up using yours, you'll get an autographed copy of Right Is Wrong).
