Congratulations to the Blog Idol Winner!

If you are one of the two people who follow this blog, you'll know that I've also been blogging as part of a contest sponsored by Computerworld Canada.  Read all the posts here.

Last evening, over beer and pub food, the winners were announced.  Congratulations to Don Sheppard in winning the grand prize, Ron Van Holst for winning the Community Blogger award.  I was awarded the editorial excellence award (To my Grade 10 English Teacher...You learned me real gud!).

It was a fun night. Thanks to Dave Webb and the folks at the ITWorld Canada organization for organizing the contest and the party.  I'll certainly be participating next year.

This post is short.  Today, the graduating class at Appleby College receive their diplomas as we launch them into a globally connected, globally competitive world - so much different that the world I graduated into.  I wish them all the best with the tool set of skills and competencies we have provided them.  Blogging is fun, but days like this remind me of the real reason I get up and say "Yippee! I get to go to work!".
