National Geographic's Yourshot section, where a friend works, has been nominated for a Webby award. Please go vote for them, not because it's run by my friend (well, not entirely for that reason), but beacuse it's an awesome idea: National Geographic lets amateur photographers send in their photos, and publishes the best of them on the web. This kind of interaction between amateurs and major media outlets should be encouraged wherever possible, especially when the result is the dissemination of really neat photographs.
