The Webby Awards is the leading international award that honors excellence on the Internet. Established in 1996 during the Web’s infancy, The award is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS) — a 1,000+ member judging body. It  includes Executive Members comprised of leading Web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries and creative celebrities, and Associate Members who are former Webby Award winners and nominees. The 18th annual Webby Awards received 1200 entries from over 60 countries and all 50 U.S. states, generating over 900 million media impressions.

 The awards present two honors in each category — The Webby Award and The Webby People’s Voice Award — in each of its five entry-types: Websites, Interactive Advertising & Media, Online Film & Video, Mobile & Apps and Social. Members of The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences select the nominees for both awards in each category, as well as the winners of The Webby Awards. Each year, The Webby People’s Voice Awards garners millions of votes from the Web community all over the world. 

This year they chose The List: 1001 Car Things To Do Before You Die.  Congratulations to Jessi Combs and her team on The List.  Watch the winning episode below.

New Lenovo Support

A new level of support from Lenovo is changing the landscape in our operations.  In the very near future, the Landspeed.com website will be residing on servers on loan from Lenovo.  A new ThinkServer will now be hosting all the content from the website, and provide storage for our engineering and intellectual property needs.
