Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you

Can’t believe it!
Near Near Future has been nominated for the 2005 Weblog Awards, aka the Bloggies.


Not only are we* among the nominees of “Best European Blog” (if the excellent Elastico had been nominated too, I’d beg you to vote for them), but also in the “Best Computers or Technology Weblog” category… euh, yes along with Slashdot and Engadget and Gizmodo. And yes, I know we stand a very poor chance to win, but I’m thrilled to be in such copmpany.

Btw, popgadget is nominated in “Best Group Blog.” So is boingboing. Ok, you’re right, boingboing is excellent, they certainly deserve their nomination at Best Blog of the Year”. But at popgadget, we would be so happy if you could “throw us a bone.”

I also cross my fingers for the World Changing team nominated for Best Non-Weblog Content and for TreeHugger nominated for Best Topical Weblog.

* I write “we”, not because I’m a complete megalomaniac, but because there’s also Max, the hidden half of the blog. He doesn’t write but does all the rest: layout of the blog, dealing with technical glitches, trying not to laugh at me when I complain that “it’s been an horrible day for the blog today,”
