Can you gerrymander the internet?
The West Side has been nominated for Best Drama Series at the 2008 Webby Awards, which are the "Oscars of the Internet" according to the New York Times. With only two episodes up (as we just posted the third this week), we somehow bested 80 episodes of the Michael Eisner-backed Prom Queen---along with some other undoubtedly better-funded shows---for a nomination.
While it's up to the judges to determine who wins amongst the five nominees, there's also a People's Voice award determined by... well, people. If you consider yourself a person, please head on over to the voting site, complete their quick registration, and cast us a vote!
And no, there would be no way to gerrymander the internet without some sort of convoluted system of awarding delegates per district instead of the overall popular vote, but I just wanted to use one of my favorite words. Unlike certain other ongoing elections, at least you know if you cast your ballot for us in the Webbys that your vote has no chance of being discarded by a superdelegate.
