Hello from OSCON! This evening, we hosted the fourth annual Google-O'Reilly Open Source Awards. I'm pleased to announce, for those who weren't present, the winners of the 2008 awards:
- Best Community Amplifier: Chris Messina - BarCamp, Microformats and Spread Firefox
- Best Contributor: Angela Byron - Drupal
- Best Education Enabler: Martin Dougiamas - Moodle
- Best Interoperator: Andrew Tridgell - Samba and Rsync
- Defender of Rights: Harald Welte - gplviolations.org
For a special treat, Leslie Hawthorn got up and spoke about Angela's award.
As always, we're having a good time and many of us will be working the Google booth on the exhibition floor tomorrow and Thursday. I'll hope you'll come say "Hi!"
