Is it just me, or does the list of winners announced for the 2006 Bloggies (the blogging oscars) bear a striking resemblance to the last 5-6 years? Slashdot, Boing Boing, Blogger, etc. Where are all the '2.0' sites, like TechCrunch, Scripting News, Digg? Anyway, there was one shining light: Darren Rowse's Problogger got an award - for Best Web Development Weblog. I'm not sure Darren would consider himself a web dev blogger, but still -- congrats Darren!
Update: Explaining myself more... I guess my beef is that there are a whole bunch of blogs that have popped up over the last couple of years that weren't even nominated. When the nominations for 2006 Bloggies came out, I was dismayed to see that same old list of names. I agree that the likes of Slashdot and BoingBoing are quality blogs/sites, but how many times can you give an Oscar to Steven Spielberg over Steven Soderbergh?
