Thanks in large part to your support, Automattic and WordPress won both of the prizes it was nominated for, WordPress winning Most Likely to Succeed and Toni Schneider of Automattic winning Best CEO. Woot!
Like I said from stage, to us the awards aren’t an accomplishment, they’re a challenge. You believe in us, and it’s our responsibility to live up to the honor you voted us into. Thank you for your support, everyone.
The event was a lot of fun too, like an Oscars but for geeks, some of whom accepted their awards in hoodies and jeans. I also think only at geek awards do you not have to worry about speeches going on too long. :)
