What about our own Search Engine Watch Awards, that I
mentioned would be happening earlier this year. Normally we do them in January, but it’s been
busy, and we’re behind. The plan now is to open up the process in March, so that our readers can discuss what they liked best in 2004. More details to come on this later.
