At Webby Awards, five words say it all

David Carr of The New York Times writes (via the International Herald Tribune):

One of the more charming idiosyncrasies of the Webby Awards, the annual awards for achievement in Web creation, requires that recipients use five words, and five words only, to make their acceptance speeches.

So after a night full of award innuendos, the 550 people in attendance were wondering how Al Gore, the loquacious former vice president, would respond to his lifetime achievement award.

He did not disappoint. "Please don't recount this vote," he said. The place went nuts.
