Stephen Colbert Given "Webby Person of the Year" Award
The Webbys Awards is an annual celebration of online culture; an Oscar for the Internet, if you will. Colbert is to be given the Webby Person of the Year award, granted, because of his skillful use (or exploitation) of the Web. In addition to Google Bombing, Colbert dominated his own Wikipedia page and managed to get thousands to donate at DonorsChoose.org.
Other winners this year include a lifetime achievement award for David Bowie, while Flickr's hardcore fanbase won the Community award. And, in the Weird category, the winner is our favorite LOLCat hub, I Can Has Cheezburger. [Source: Webby Awards via CNN]
