I meant to wait until last Monday to announce the winners, but I just totally forgot - what a screw-up on my part. My apologies!
In any event, the 2010 Glyph Awards were given out May 14th, and as one of the judges, I have to to say, in all modesty, that I think we did a bang-up job with the award nominees and winners!
