The Webby Awards ( ) were handed out on June 18, about a week too early for our purposes at Pique. All told, more than 30 awards were handed out in different categories by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences at a special reception in San Francisco.

In past weeks, Cybernaut has reviewed the nominees in categories ranging from Activism to Politics. Because it’s an honour to be nominated – and because we were about a week too late starting the reviews – we’re going to continue to review the nominated sites. Maybe you’ll find something here you can use.
