Was great to be in the audience when the announcement was made at Pubcon. Even more surreal that Shak was about to do a keynote. So many of the crew that were at the Thistle in London back in 2002 were in the audience, sadly, no lazerzubb but I am sure he was with us in spirit.
A very well deserved award for tedster, sorry for nearly choking you when I came up behind you, keep fighting the fight.
Personally, if the advertising revenue was used for more free drinks at shows, some sort of stipend for the less fortunate, then I would not be averse to seeing it. It's like anything, blend it in and we are good, make it the main feature and you'll get haters, but then you'll get haters anyway.
Congratulations to all concerned.
