I’m really elated to find myself nominated for this year’s .Net Magazine Awards.

I’m humbled by the way YouTube Instant took off so quickly after I built it and I’m extremely thankful to the hundreds of thousands of good people who tweeted, liked, stumbled and otherwise shared my little hack and helped turn it into a worldwide sensation for a few weeks.

Thanks to the good people at .Net Magazine for putting on this awesome award series to recognize so many of the creative people who work in web design and development. Here are the nomination categories:
