Hitwise 2007 Australian Internet Business Awards

This evening, we crossed the harbour and ventured to the Hitwise 2007 Australian Internet Business Awards because The Sydney Opera House won an award which my partner got to collect. (Funnily enough, it is the most popular Australian entertainment website, in the performing arts category.)

Not to take away from the award at all, but I would imagine the reason The Sydney Opera House gets more hits than other performing arts venues has something to do with this rather unfair advantage I captured as we arrived at Luna Park's Crystal Ballroom:



I also scoffed at the R.T.A. website winning the most visited government website in NSW. Though I smiled that SA Lotteries won the government website category for SA. Other obvious awards included CBA Netbank, Yahoo Mail and the A.T.O. which seems a little stupid to me. But I guess, I learned that if you're a skateboarding website, and your web address is www.skateboard.com.au then you're likely to get the most hits in the skateboarding category. Sigh. I was happy to see Eatability, Gaydar, The RSPCA and EBAY get awards.

I did like the show by Laserman, who I last saw a long time ago. He has improved greatly, and I even considered asking for a card... but I guess he's in well-paying corporate world, and we probably can't afford him.



I also liked the MC - James O'Loghlin from the ABC's The New Inventors. He was very funny. And he posed for a photo with Craig and the 'award'.
