Lifetime Achievement award
Last year I was nominated for a Lifetime Achievement award. I said at that time that, while flattered, I had no business winning such an award ahead of many others that had gone before me (and were so pivotal to my own development as a blogger). I continue to stand by that statement.
David Warlick and Karl Fisch have won this award to date; both were superb choices. This year I was going to make a tough choice between either Will Richardson (last year's runner-up) or Stephen Downes. Since Stephen isn't on the list, I'm checking the box next to Will's name. If you don't agree with my choice, there are many other excellent candidates in this category, including some names that I should have put on last year's list.
