The Webby Awards ( www.webbyawards.com ) were handed out on June 18, about a week too early for our purposes at Pique. All told, more than 30 awards were handed out in different categories by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences at a special reception in San Francisco.
In past weeks, Cybernaut has reviewed the nominees in categories ranging from Activism to Politics. Because its an honour to be nominated and because we were about a week too late starting the reviews were going to continue to review the nominated sites. Maybe youll find something here you can use.
