Personally, I think one of the best things about voting in the Webbys is discovering some great sites from different genres than I often peruse. Some of my favorites this year have included this Harry-met-Sally update (with Billy Crystal and Helen Mirren!) on Funny Or Die, this Facebook parody, this amazing music project, and this cool way to display a portfolio.

There are several other gems to discover. Just don’t forget to vote for the NG family!
