Camping is a winner at SXSW-i

Last night, a little Camping application I wrote called MetaNotes won the Experimental division in the SXSW Web Awards.
MetaNotes is a site that lets you (and many other people) simultaneously place colorful post-it notes on a wide canvas. If you get lucky, you may see notes move in the background as other people (or robots) make changes to the space you happen to be in.
I must warn you that it's very alpha at the moment, so be gentle with the site. In my estimation, it's only about 60% done, and we were surprised to even be finalists.
Anyway, I'm writing this email to thank everyone who worked on Camping and made it the beautiful little web microframework that it is. My favorite part of Camping is the way controllers are expressed. It gives me so much control over URLs, and I love how the controllers are RESTful by default. That was a brilliant idea.
PS: During the web awards, we must've been sitting at the lucky table. There were 3 teams at the table, and at the end of the night, that table had 4 awards. I wish I had taken a picture. (The MetaNotes crew was sitting w/ people from Wikinvest and Launchball. We all won our respective categories, and Launchball won something else at the end.) How crazy is that.
