Wampum has their finalists for the 2003 Koufax Awards (think lefty) loaded up and ready for voting. Visit the main page to see all the voting posts in order.

Why do I like these awards, as opposed to the Bloggies? For one, they’re run by honorable folks. Second the nomination process was open for all to see. And finally they seem to have done a good job capturing the best of their target – unlike the Bloggies.

As for the Bloggies, how many times can the same sites magically make it through the *cough* nomination *cough* process before people figure out the fix is in? Oh sorry, that was last year… I’m sure the process was much better this year. I mean there are so many more interesting blogs, you probably won’t find muliptle nominations for Little Yellow Different, Will Wheaton, Kottke, etc.

That said a few good sites not previously over represented managed slip in among the all too familiar cast. Piss off the Bloggie crew and boycott the “regulars” and vote for sites like these:

An Unsealed Room

Golden Globes - Stream Of Conscious
Stand Alone Trackback Status
