Delphi Legends 2009 Community Award

Community NomineeJohn Thomas of Wings-of-Wind.com started a community poll. Originally he was calling it the Spirit of Delphi award, but then it was pointed out that the Spirit of Delphi is awarded by the Delphi R&D team. Well John didn’t let this discourage him, so he renamed it the Delphi Legends Community Award.

John kicked off the poll process by nominating Zarko Gajic of Delphi.About.Com and Peter Below of TeamB. Then the community nominated a number of others, including myself. Just being nominated among such other great Delphi legends is quite an honor.

In the end around 500 developers voted and I received 11% of the votes, ending up with 4th place, making me a Nominee. The other winners are:

Other nominees include

Also Primoz Gabrijelcic won the nobility prize for encouraging other to vote for Peter Below.

Be sure to check out the interviews with a number of the winners, including me.

Spirit of Delphi Poll

Typically the Spirit of Delphi award winner is chosen by the Delphi R&D team, but this year it would appear there is a community poll.  I am quite honored to find myself on the list of nominees.  To be numbered among such other great contributors is a treat in itself.

I encourage you all to get out and vote in the poll.  It closes this Saturday the 24th of October.

Ideal Podcast Duration

Some of you may have noticed a poll on the left side bar on our home page.  These polls provide a great way for me to aggregate your feedback on how to improve the podcast.  When I first started this podcast my target duration was 15 miuntes to a half hour.  Then I started interviewing all these interesting people and my duration shot up to about 45 miuntes.  I actually edit the hour long interview down quite a bit, but they are still longer then I planned.  Maybe that is a good thing.  Let me know what you think.  How long would the ideal podcast be for you?
