Receiving the 2008 Open Source Award

According to reports here and here I had the honor of being the recipient of one of the the 2008 Google+O'Reilly Open Source Awards entitled Defender of Rights", presented by Google and O'Reilly.

I'm obviously very happy to see that my work has been recognized this way. Following the FSF Award in March, this is definitely a big honor. Did anyone else receive both awards in the same year so far? ;)

Thanks to the committee for the trust they put in my work. I'd also like to use this opportunity to thank again my lawyer Dr. Till Jaeger and his law firm JBB, as well as Armijn Hemel, who has been running the day-to-day operations for quite some time now.
