ink blotGottaBeMobile‘s Warner Crocker has unveiled the winners of this year’s Ink Blot awards. While you could certainly make the case that this prestigious annual event is really just an excuse for Warner to make up funny categories for mobile tech bloggers and name friends and colleagues as the winners, I’m still honored to be recognized as “best netbook blogger.” Last year, Liliputing won for best new mobile tech blog. I’ll take this year’s award as a step up.

As always, Liliputing is in good company. UMPC Portal, jkkmobile, jkOnTheRun, and Joanna Stern all winning awards this year. If I were to add one category to the bunch, it would be “best site for breaking netbook news” it would be Netbooked, which has a habit of finding more interesting stories about netbooks and ultraportable computers before I wake up than most sites will publish all day. Of course, Peter from Netbooked is on the other side of the globe from me, which does give him a slight advantage when it comes to putting in a full workday before 7am.

I’d also throw in a category for best user community/forum, but I’d have a hard time deciding whether to give the award to EeeUser, MyDellMini, MyHPMini, or any of the dozens of other excellent communities that have formed around netbooks over the past two years.

I’m also a big fan of several netbook and mini-laptop sites that often don’t get the attention they should in the US, simply because they’re not written in English. Among these are Blogeee,,, and Eee, although that list is hardly all-inclusive.

    1. Yup, you’re definitely one of my must-reads. But that’s what happens when I
      write up a blog post off the top of my head instead of putting as much time
      and effort into it as Warner obviously put into his Ink Blot awards

  1. Nice! I’m glad I found your site a while ago while looking for a netbook ; I’ve never stopped reading since! And the fact that you could enlighten me about a website like Blogeee, which I had never heard of before even though I speak french, was like an awesome bunny made of win! Keep on blogging, Brad!
