The entire After the Credits crew (yes, all three of us!) were out in force at the Best of 604 awards last night.

Congratulations to all the winners! It's clear from the turnout Vancouver has a vibrant and engaged blogging community. The venue was totally jammed. The demographics were interesting, too. Unlike so many areas involving technology, women were well represented. The average age was probably mid to late 20's, but you could spot people higher up the age range. Regardless, if you're looking to add interesting blogs to you reading list, just browse the nominee list for candidates.

I took the opportunity to collect streeters for our upcoming Christmas podcast. People were really gracious allowing their party/social time to be interrupted by an idiot with a microphone asking what their favourite Christmas movie was. My thanks to all my victims, you know who you are (and after the Christmas podcast the world will, as well)!

Who won the podcasting category, you ask? [Insert drum roll] The winner was Lip Gloss and Laptops. After the Credits was a long shot, so no surprise is wasn't us. I don't know Kerry Ann but I've spoken with Airdrie a couple times. She's good people and the win is well deserved. And I can't not mention runner up, Choogle On With Uncle Weed. Dave, a.k.a. Uncle Weed, is a consummate story teller and he does it well.

And a shout-out to Rebecca (Miss 604) for all her hard work and a job well done. Thanks to her, $1800 was raised for the food bank and our little corner of the world had a top-up of cheer and goodwill.

Thank you to everyone who voted for us. It was a blast being a contender!

Vote for my Podcast!

Those of you who visit the site in-person may have noticed a side-bar block listing episodes from After the Credits, a podcast I do with my movie buddies Marina (Confessions / Row 3) and Colleen (353 Review / Weird BC).

Best of 604After the Credits made it to the final round of the Best of 604!

So if you like the podcast, please head over to the Best of 604 voting page and vote!. Colleen's 353 Review site is also nominated (How can you not like movie reviews in Haiku!). I hang out with some very talented people.

The Best of 604 is the brainchild of Vancouver metro blogger Miss 604 (aka Rebecca Bollwitt). She's arguably Vancouver's best known metro blogger, if not period, then certainly in the Vancouver social media community. The contest is an outgrowth of her promotion of things local:

As often as I can, I try to highlight and promote local business, organizations, bloggers, and online triumphs. In 2007 I started the Best of 604 wherein I listed some of my favourite sites, parks, and places for family fun around the region.

This year, I wanted to leave the nomination and voting to the public (that way no one can wonder what my mystery formula was for calculating winners).

A big thank you to everyone who voted us into the final round and a thanks-in-advance to everyone who just clicked the link and voted.
