Vloggies, Bloggies, and ummm…Gov’t Voting

‘Tis the season to vote…and there’s plenty to weigh in on (sorry for ending a sentence with a preposition, but “..and there’s plenty on which to weigh” doesn’t feel right).

Government Voting: I voted today in record time. I spent <5 minutes in the polling booth — less time than the polling machine demo given by the nice, retired lady who lives for volunteering at the polls every election day. I felt like interupting her to let her know I knew what to do, but that dang Catholic guilt got the better of me again. I do have to give a shout-out to the work-from-home situation which allowed me to quickly pop into the neighborhood polling place mid-day when it wasn't busy.

Vloggies: The results are in and neatly summarized by Scoble. I was glad to see that my favorite vlogger, ZeFrank, took home some bling. Too bad the Vloggies didn’t offer a “Favorite Geriatrics Vlogger” because Peter from the UK would have won hands down.

Bloggies: TOMORROW is your last chance to vote for your favorite Sun blogger or Sun blog enty. You have to be a citizen of Sun Microsystems to vote tho’. I think they should change this. Here are my picks (hopefully, I won’t get in trouble for voting more than once):

Favorite Blog Entry: New Song: Java EE 5!
Technology Category: TheAquarium
Favorite Blog: ThinGuy
Business Category: Jim Grisanzio
Favorite Blog: MaryMary
Technology Category: Roumen’s Weblog

Sure they are all favorites to win, but two elements that had a heavy influence on my choices were:

1. Level of blogging effort
2. Passion

There are at least 10 other Sun blogs that I read consistently, but didn’t want to lose my Bloggies Voter Card for going over board.

    I’m extremely flattered to have your vote in be in the company of MM, Jim, Roumen, etc.
    (sniff, sniff)
    It’s an honor just to be nominated. 🙂
