The Shorty Awards at Twitter: Please notice that Stephen Fry is somehow not winning the Humor category. I demand that this be rectified immediately. Also, winners will give 140-character speeches in New York. I'm not even making that up. You know you want him to be there.
(Full disclosure: I have received one vote in this category. Reading over my twits or tweets or whatever they are--they are really not award material. They are "random thoughts I now don't have to squeeze into a linkspam post." So this is not a beg for nominations. However, if you would like to nominate my friend David in the social media category--he writes for AdFreak and has his own blog, The Social Path--feel free to do so, because he really does deserve it.)
