Had a great night at the DMA 2007 event last night. I didn’t win the blogging category, but I didn’t expect anyone except Blogorrah to win it – very well deserved. Like me, they have a love for the Webdings font for their icons 🙂
But the story of the night was Conn Ó Muineachain’s win for not only independent podcaster but the DMA overall prize as well. This award dispels some uneasiness I had about pay-to-enter awards events; if personal hard work is rewarded over wads of cash being dropped on media projects by large companies, it says something positive about this particular event. Also met a bunch of people, including the Fallon brothers from Daft, the Silicon Republic crew, and Sandra, Dan, John, Conor, Brian and Damien.
