Totally old hat, hopelessly dated, I couldn't resist linking to this "news" from the past!
Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be bloggers appeared in 2005 as an NBC News article. The only merit to reading the article today (2013) is the link to The Bobs.
The Bobs website, www.thebobs.com, lists and describes all of this year's finalists. Internet users around the world will have until May 7 to choose their favorites for the Users' Choice Award in each of the 34 categories.
The Bobs' finalists are punctuated with bloggers and activists from around the world who demonstrate dedication to their causes - often at great risk to themselves. Some nominees are individuals and groups taking a stand for more democracy, human rights and freedom of expression while others work simply to improve other people's lives.
The contests' other prize, the Jury Award, will be decided by The Bobs jury members during a meeting on May 4-5 in Berlin. All The Bobs winners will be announced on May 7 and winners of the Jury Awards will be invited to Bonn to receive their prizes at a ceremony on June 18 as part of the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum.
