Ah-na Does Geek Chic?

I’ve just fallen over in my stilts.

Ms. Wintour attended the Webby Awards in New York last night.

Even as I type that, I cannot believe she was there in person.

Have our worlds – and words – collided, Ms. Wintour? For the unworldly, un-nerdy few who may not know, the Webbys are a night honouring the Internet’s best citizens – showcasing excellence in websites, interactive advertising and online film and video.

Green with envy that I - a veteran web chick - wasn't there to see the web chic in person.

She was in attendance to accept the “People’s Voice” award for Vogue.com.

Here’s her infamous and petite acceptance speech.


That may have just made my week.
