SourceForge.net community choice awards

The other day, I received an email from sourceforge.net, which is the site many open source projects use to host the program source code for their software. It said:

"Hey! You! Are you sick of letting the big hardware companies, tech blogs, and mainstream media decide which open source projects deserve widespread attention? So are we. That's why we created the SourceForge.net Community Choice Awards, and we need your nominations!"

So I nominated "ccMixter.org powered by ccHost" in an attempt to give visibility to the main project ccMixter as well as to its underlying open source software.

Unfortunately within sourceforge.net, ccHost is a bit buried as just one entry under Creative Commons tools, which imho doesn't do the magnitude and importance of the ccHost software the justice it deserves.

You can add your voice to the nomination (you'll need a sourceforge,net or an openid account) by clicking on the button the the right. (I've nominated it under "Best Project for Multimedia").

In my opinion, I have a feeling ccM would have a better chance in -

Searching for CMS at sourceforge yeilds over 2,500 hits. Nothing's changing because of ccHost lol. The community at ccM, that's different... ;)
