STOP PRESS!!! Exciting news…!
A few months back, Autodesk entered Line//Shape//Space into the Webby Awards competition. The Webby Awards is the Internet’s most respected symbol of success. The 18th Annual Webby Awards received 12,000 entries from all 50 US states and over 60 countries worldwide.
In short: The Webby Awards are a very big deal in the web world, and the the competition is incredibly fierce.
Judges for this year’s Webby Awards included Kevin Spacey, David Bowie, Arianna Huffington, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom, Tumblr founder David Karp, Martha Stewart, Richard Branson, and Harvard Law School professor Lawrence Lessig.
Line//Shape//Space was recognized as an Official Honoree in The 18th Annual Webby Awards. A total of six publications were granted this award—and it’s pretty amazing company too; including TechCrunch, The Atlantic Business, and BlackBerry, and very likely that Line//Shape//Space is the youngest site at just 1+ years old.
To use the exact words in the email I have just received,
“This is an incredible honour for us and a big win for Autodesk to be recognized by the Webby Awards, aligned with the top echelon of Internet publications”.
As one of my Autodesk colleagues said in the email, the real hero with this site is the amazing content—so a HUGE congrats to our Line//Shape//Space Editor in Chief Kylee Swenson Gordon!
I work with a wonderful team at Autodesk (you all know who you are!) and it is a privilege to work with you and the incredible team of writers, many of whom I class not just as colleagues, but as great personal friends.
May the great work we do continue!
