I’m surprised and pleased to be able to tell you that last night, here at OSCON, I was given the 2006 Google-O’Reilly Open Source Award for Best Community Activist. :-) I now have a rather beautiful transparent multi-coloured perspex sculpture to put on my mantlepiece at home.
Thank you very much to both Google and O’Reilly.
Update: here’s a nice photo of my award, taken by James Duncan Davidson for O’Reilly Media.
well done, gerv. you deserve it
I was there last night to hear your acceptance speech. I was very happy to hear your thankfulness to Christ and the reminder that yes He is coming soon!
nice one, Gerv!
Ooh, congratulations! And that’s a particularly cool category to be recognized in. Kudos.
Congrats! Gerv. I like your blog very well.
Congrats! It’s fun being recognized for doing something well, especially something you love.
