So did anyone get nominated for a net visionary?
It would be nice if you actually had something positive to say about something for a changemeaningless awards imo, given past winners (and contenders)
Fair enoughWell Michele, I say what I think... I say positive things when I feel it is justified and negative stuff when it is due too..
To be honest, I think I was thinking of the "golden spider award" when I replied to the post (or whatever it was called), which was a total Joke.. hence the negativity in my post.
As for being nominated for awards, I am not interested in winning any awards tyvm. as for pointing you to awards that are meaningful, real winners only compete against themselves IMO.
"net visionary" huh. I haven't seen anyone here do anything particularly original or cutting edge or proactive (nor do I claim to have done so b.t.w).. so I shall reserve judgement until I see who wins..
Niall the negative c***.
The one big difference between the awards is that you can end up being nominated without even knowing for a Net Visionary - of course you don't have to accept the nomination.I have to side with Niall here. I'm not trying to be negative about the IIA's... they're certainly more honorable and altruistic than the Golden Spanners. Having said this, it's a popularity contest and not really a mark of quality in most cases. I'm not going to name names here, but last year there were some very undeserving winners. I can only assume that those on top of their game don't bother entering.
As Niall says, real winners only compete against themselves.
