Best FUD Fighter: And the winner is... me!
Wednesday, July 25 2007 @ 03:07 PM EDT

The five winners of this year's Google-O'Reilly Open Source Awards were announced last night at OSCON, and I am one of the winners, as "Best FUD Fighter". I love that. Best FUD Fighter.

We have *got* to do a new T shirt, methinks.

It means I get to be listed in the Hall of Fame page. "The Google-O'Reilly Open Source Awards have been presented to individuals for dedication, innovation, leadership and outstanding contribution to open source." This feels so good. It's truly a wonderful thing to know that work you love doing is in fact appreciated by the very people you wish to please the most.

So thank you so much for this honor, Google and O'Reilly committee members. It is very meaningful to me. This was the first year they had an open submissions process, so perhaps I should also thank whoever thought of me. It could even be one of you. Of course, Groklaw isn't just me. If it were, it'd be very different, and so I want to thank all of you who have contributed -- and continue to contribute through thick and thin, year after year -- to this sustained community effort.

I knew we could do this. I just knew. Thank you for making the dream come true. O'Reilly has the news up now too. They call our work "tremendous". Thank you. OSCON is still live by the way, and we will be having reports for you as time goes by.
