How awesome: Ficlets, the collaborative fiction site I was a part of, won a Web award at SXSW. And I got mentioned among others in the acceptance speech by Kevin Lawver, who took home the award. That was very nice of him, but it should be noted that he’s the brains behind the operation and deserves much of the credit for the success of the site. My part — smiling and waving (and blogging) — was easy. His part and the part of others (i.e., the backend) was a whole bunch harder. Congratulations to Kevin, and to all the Ficlets folks.
