The Webby Awards of 2009 have come and gone. As with most award ceremonies, plenty of folks won awards that no one has ever heard of. I don’t intend to bore you, and don’t actually know much about the whole Webby phenomenon, but it’s worth looking over.

Twitter, no surprise, won an award for being the “Breakout of the Year”. Everybody and their dog has a twitter these days. Personally, I haven’t yet succumbed.

R/GA won an award as the most accomplished design firm. Their video on how design firms have worked in the past, present and will in the future was eye-opening.

And of course, a few other people got awards but generally when the Webby’s come around not you or I or anybody else really needs to care — just like the oscars.
