I promise this is the last time I’ll mention it

Just a little note to readers new and old that we* won our first award for myFry last night at the Media Guardian Innovation awards. It was nominated in the Mobile App category alongside the well-known iHobo work (which won two other awards last night).

You’ll probably already have seen my thoughts on my time developing the app at Dare, and they still ring true today. Even though I still read the odd critical comment (and then assume it’s naive criticism) the truth is, as the awards recognised and Stephen himself states here – it fundamentally challenges the notion of linear reading for certain texts and it – more than many other alternative digital readers – understood the culture and physical environmental context in which this book would be read.

And that, said Pooh, is that.
