Accepting the Webby

Timothy Karr Tim KarrHere I accept the 2007 Webby Award for the best activism Web site,, earlier this month.

As some may know the Webby Awards only allow five-word acceptance speeches.

Ironically, the sponsor of the award category was long-time foe Verizon Communications.

My five words: "Verizon Doesn't Own the Internet"

That's Rob Corddry over my right shoulder. He laughed. The crowd cheered for about three seconds. They wouldn't let me take the trophy home.

I was there (I am the Webby Canadian Ambassador) and that speech was clearly one of the highlights of the Webbys for me.
