My part is called “Inventing the Future”, and some of my colleagues on the site are a Sci Fi author, a net/media access lawyer, an economist, and occasionally a Planet Green TV producer. Mostly I write about how great things are going to be in the abstract but almost-here future and everyone else writes about why things are perhaps really not very cool right now.
By any measure, the legal section by policy wonk Harold Feld is really the star attraction. He’s terrific, and the original nominators clearly had him in mind. But since he writes on law and the contest judges placed us in the finals for “Tech”, I’m choosing to pretend to general acclaim all around.
We are getting killed by gizmodo and ars technica and, well, everyone else, and that’s as it should be: they have real reporters and readers and such. Of all the categories, do you suppose anyone would mind if we hacked a victory for Tech? Perhaps we shant.
But if you’re inclined, vote at http://2008.weblogawards.org/polls/best-technology-blog/. You can do so once each 24 hours. (Alas, you need to have Flash installed. No iPhone voting. Kind of a cute way to cut down on robots, though, so that a simple automated voting program would have to encompass a flash emulator…)
