Best S.F. Historian

May 27th, 2009 by Woody

The SF Weekly has identified the city’s best historian, and the best SF History podcast.

Of course, we all know this is just a popularity contest, that the big studios push their products with millions of dollars of publicity… oh wait, that’s the Academy Awards.

Seriously, we know and like Chris Carlsson and the Sparkletack podcast (even though it’s called me “James LaBounty” at times: as if I don’t have enough nicknames.) Promoting SF history is what we want to do, and for a weekly paper to even think about having the category is great.

    these votes are kinda odd, it really depends on who has the patience to fill out a ballot…the SF Weekly online one was particularly tedious.

    last year I won “Best local blog” at the Bay Guardian and to this day I don’t know how that happened. Not only did I not vote for myself, I never even KNEW the category existed so it was weird to get a call saying I’d won.

    I have a feeling they’ll be working extra hard to make sure I don’t win this year.

    Chris didn’t win a readers’ poll — he was selected by one of the staff writers at the Weekly. I suspect that’s what happened with your blog, njudah.
