The power of five

CATEGORY: News

Griff points us to a nice story: the eBay Community is to be given a lifetime achievement award in this year’s Webbies. Meg Whitman will accept the award next month, given “in recognition of eBay’s contributions as a cultural phenomenon and commitment to innovation, growth and social consciousness”.

As Griff says, Webby acceptance speeches are traditionally limited to five words only: “Brevity is not always our strongest suit, so I’m curious what Meg will decide on.” It will be very interesting to see if she follows Paypal’s cheaty lead from last year: in accepting the People’s Voice award in the Finance sector, they said “Paypal thanks *a hundred and five* million users”. If they’re calling that a five word speech, it’s significantly not as described 😉

You can add your suggestions for Meg’s five words to this thread.
