The Inkwell Award committee announces with deep regret that founder, Tim Townsend, due to personal reasons has decided to step down from his position and return his awards. Tim has made this decision due to a series of unfounded and malicious personal attacks upon his character and integrity and time constraints which prevent him from giving his fullest attention for the awards for 2009.
By “personal attacks”, I think they mean pointing out how much of a conflict of interest it is for one of the Award organizers to also be a winner, as I did. I never saw any actual attacks on Townsend, but those behind the Awards took the whole discussion rather badly, as you can see in comments at that link.
Anyway, now, of the 10 awards, Danny Miki won 5 of them. That’s… not particularly diverse. I still think there’s too many award categories without clear distinction in this program. We’ll see, if they happen again next year, what revisions, if any, are made.
