On Thursday 3rd December 2009 I had the pleasure of heading down to London to spend an evening at the .NET Awards, hosted by the fabulous .NET Magazine. It was a great opportunity to finally meet some of the web folk we’re all familiar with, and to experience the results live at the awesome Altitude 360 venue in the centre of the capital.

  1. Aaah the joys of the roadworks between 28 and 24. Seriously though that looked like one hell of a good time. I take it the Erskine table proceeded to buy all the paracetamol in London the next morning..?

  2. Congrats to IE6 – I’m glad they came on top :)

    I’m pleased for Smashing Mag, TweetDeck, JQuery and Barack!!

  3. Thanks for listing them, but I found it very annoying that there were no links to the actual sites. Like a gallery with only the thumbnails and no large pictures.

  4. On the .NET awards website they list bbc.co.uk as the winner of the best redesign category. thanks for the summary.

  5. How can you not like Stephen Fry, he’s both everywhere and hilarious. The list is great, and like that the Whitehouse.gov was on there and that IE 6 won infamy.

  6. I have to say DropBox has revolutionized how I work with my business partners! It’s fast, it’s easy and it works!
