I’m going to the webbys

I’m going to the webbys tonight (thanks jason), and I noticed a funny quote in this article about it:

“Winners don’t receive compensation — just a trophy that looks a bit like an oversize corkscrew. But the recognition ‘puts them on the map,’ said Tiffany Shlain, the event’s founder and director. ‘Some get funding the day afterward.”

I can’t wait to see the VCs stepping over themselves to fund kottke.org. Yeah, it could happen. 🙂
