Sure, half of last year's Webby Award winners are dead and gone -- and maybe the digs weren't quite as glamorous as in years past -- but the Webby spirit of wackiness and unexpected celebrity lives on.

Katharine Mieszkowski describes the scene at San Francisco's fifth annual Webby Awards -- complete with live soundbites from the awards show.


Special thanks to Becky Bond for the sound recordings.
