Webby Awards

Guess who's receiving a Webby Award!
Setting the record straight on one of recent history's most persistent political myths, The Webby Awards will present Former Vice President Al Gore with The Webby Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of the pivotal role he has played in the development of the internet over the past three decades. Vint Cerf, widely credited as one of the "fathers of the internet," will present Vice President Gore with the award.
Not much of a consolation for all the distortions in the political campaign, though. Makes one wonder how much better off we might all be today if that particular distortion had been omitted and replaced by the truth.

Here's a transcript of the remarks that started it all.
