The SXSW Interactive Web Awards finalists are up... and the site I submitted isn't mentioned. Am I bitter? No.. no.. OK. YES. Anyway, the sites listed are the best of the best of 2001. Worth a look.

I don't know about backwash.com being in the best weblog category. I thought it was more of a service or something. I guess Blogdex would also fall into that, but it's a great resource.

I kinda like the nominees, I've only heard of a handful of them, so it looks like a nice way to highlight 30-40 sites even a grizzled old web surfer like me hasn't seen.

Weird. In the humor category, there's a website for a tv show. (madeincanada.ca)

I don't think I've heard of more than one or two, time to do some clicking.

Me, too -- only heard of/been to one for sure, maybe two. Oh well, that's easily remedied...

Congrats to the handful of MeFi members whose work has been nominated.

Feh. Four of the five nominees for Developer's Resource are Flash resource sites.

guess what self-promoting weblogger we all know and love has been nominated for an award at SxSW? none other than adnan (at adnan.org -- he won't get any direct traffic from anything i write). how lame.

how is blogdex a weblog?

Well, there's technically a weblog at Blogdex, but I'm doubting that's what the nomination is honoring.

Mis-classifications are always a bummer.

It's a relatively unusual list, but that's nothing new for SXSW. Some categories are confusing (Grrl web site? What is that?) And I like Jish.vox, but that site isn't a streaming audio site? I guess this is a way to highlight alternative sites, but I'm not sure about the criteria used to choose them (design? content? interactivity?).

I think it's important to note that SXSW is a competition that one has to enter for consideration -- these are finalists, not nominees. Also, the category in which each site is considered is chosen by the entrant, not by the judges.

Yeah for eugenemirman.com (which is hilarious).

Boo to Lisawhiteman.com which is such derivitive crap. Compared to personal blogs like dooce and Mighty Girl, Ms. Whiteman doesn't hold a candle.

You guys still give a shit about this stuff?

Shouldn't you be busy trying to find non existant web jobs?

a grrl category containing simply female-written web-logs, but no specifically male boy boi category?

Yeah, the "grrl" category is a bit out of date.

That, and I'm still bitter, so I won't comment on the quality of the sites that made the grade, when mine didn't... grrr.

Wow, quick to sink to calling people's personal sites "crap" over a web award. I just love the communal and caring spirit of the internet. Such a utopia.

Speaking of crap, I can't believe that dirty whore Bertie got in for that slut-show survivorcam. Oh you knew you were thinking it, I said it for you, now don't bother.

Now quick: rehash other awards discussions. Yah.
