  • Genographic Project wins the Webby Awards!

    Over the last two weeks, I posted about the Genographic Project being nominated for the 10th Annual Webby Awards. Thanks to those who took the time to vote!

    My interest in seeing the Genographic Project nominated for and hopefully winning this award is the additional publicity it should bring to people who may have otherwise never heard about or cared about the Genographic Project or about genetic genealogy. Hopefully this additional publicity will lead to new participants in the Genographic Project which, in turn, should lead to at least some of those new participants joining FTDNA as well.

    You can see the previous thread here - http://www.familytreedna.com/forum/s...ead.php?t=1728

    Voting closed on Friday and winners were announced today....

    CONGRATULATIONS to the Genographic Project for winning BOTH the Webby Award (voted for by committee) and the People's Voice Award (voted for by the public) in the Science category! Other nominees in the category were: Astronomy Online, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA Ozone Hole Watch and BBC's Springwatch.

    Awesome!

    Hooray!

    I did my part and cast my vote for the Genographic Project.

    I'm glad it won.

      Woohoo! I voted too! I will be looking forward to an onslaught of new testees, and maybe we all learn more about the distribution of Haplogroups, and (a little selfishly, I admit) maybe I will finally get a match? Thanks Elise for making us aware of the Webby Awards.

            I wonder if orders have increased at all as a result of winning the Webby.

              Good question. Over 300,000 votes were cast for the People's Voice Award. Hopefully at least a few of those people ordered kits?

              Maybe the lab is too busy processing all those new kits to finish your batch 147 test

                You read my mind!

                That's okay, though.

                We need a bigger data base (although I hope I get my results soon).
