Google Earth Wins Several Webby Awards

Webby AwardsIt was just announced today that Google Earth won two major Awards in the 10th Annual Webby Awards in the categories of Best Visual Design/Function, and Broadband. Google Earth also won both categories as the People’s Voice Award (voted most popular) . The Webby Awards are like the “Oscars” for Internet web sites and applications. It seems a bit weird for Google Earth to get a “Webby” award, but there’s no denying its one of the best applications on the planet.
Google Maps also won a well-deserved Webby Award in the category of Services, and People’s Voice Awards for Best Practices and for the Services category. Apparently most people really like these apps. See the full list of awards, nominees, and winners.
