Congratulations to all.
Particularly congratulations to my personal favorite, Norbert von de Groeben (I especially love the name) who I really enjoy seeing at events around town with his camera and also in our neighborhood walking his dog.

Well-deserved. The Weekly has grown and matured along with available technology.
Don't let your guard down, Weekly - keep charging forward. More real-time information; more extensibility to portable devices; more individual, controversial, noteworthy blogs (this needs work and development) from people with strong, informed opinions; more hard-hitting front pages (gee, enough about "art" on the front page already! - I love Art, but there's a limit); more youthful voices represented, in ways that do more than mimic the stereotypical mage that we have about youth; more on seniors as people who are living, and thriving - instead of simply "hanging"; more unusual angles on sport; how about Weekly 'broadcasts? - I'll do it!; and so on...
maybe I should start my own newspaper, or opinion pages, or whatever? Hmmmmm......

Alas, it seems the Newspaper Publishers' Association must not have looked at the Best of Palo Alto survey when they gave PaloAltoOnline.com their first place web site award. For each category (best burrito, best ice cream, etc.), the PAW provided a list of some, but not all, of the local businesses serving that category. Because people are more inclined to choose a business from a list than to write-in another business not on the list, the eventual results will be biased in favor of the particular businesses the PAW has chosen to list. The results of this year's Best of survey certainly won't be influencing my dining and shopping dollars.
