CIA's award winning site

I always love the Webbie awards. They have been around for years, but they always find sites that I would not have seen before. Today, I was reading a column about some of these social networking Web sites, but it was about social networking sites for pets! (Here is a link to the column, but registration is required. You can just visit dogster.com to see the site itself... and if you don't know about these social networking sites, they land on the cover of Newsweek magazine this week. If you have kids, they know about them, so it is worth a read... Oh! And today, US-CERT put out one of their alerts on how to protect yourself on those social sites.)

Anyway... Dogster won a 2005 Webbie. So -- the danger of the Web... everything is just a click away -- I go to find out 2005's other winners and, in the Webbie employment categroy no less, the CIA's employment Web site.

I should note that the often praised National Cancer Institute Web site won in the Webbie government category.

Congrats folks.
