Five years ago today...

Rudy Jahchan & Casey McKinnon at the Vloggies 2006

...Rudy and I attended the Vloggies, the first ever web video awards, and won five awards for Galacticast! We were critical of the event at first because there were a few f*ckups and it was more corporate than we wanted a web video awards show to be, but in time (and especially after last year's Streamys) I grew to look back on it with shiny eyes.

Many of the creative and innovative people who attended the Vloggies have gone on to do amazing things. One of them is sadly no longer with us... R.I.P. Oscar, we miss you.

For more information on the Vloggies I highly suggest reading Laughing Squid's Vloggies wrap-up... I couldn't have said it any better myself.
