CNET, circa 2000

This is the CNET crew at our hip offices South of Market in San Francisco, when I was Editor, circa 2000. (I was fond of that pink couch). A successful “dot com” startup, we were the first online news publication to win a prestigious National Magazine Award. We collected the award at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York. It was a hoot! Other nominees in the General Excellence Online category were Beliefnet, The Chronicle of Higher Education, National Geographic Online, Sky &, and Slate. One of the staffers put this photo up on Facebook this week.
