I Have Just Voted for the Hugos

...and those of you who have been following these "Hugo Thoughts" posts probably have a decent idea of how that ballot went.

I will say that I left off something in every single category -- admittedly, it was "No Award" a couple of times, but I did deliberately not list nominees in most of the major categories, and I recommend that other voters do the same, whenever there's a nominee you really would not like to see win. (It will win, of course -- that's how popular-vote awards work: the things you hate the most win out over the things you love.)

The important thing, though, is that there's less than nine hours left to vote. (The Hugo Packet will also only be available for about that time, as well -- so download it now, if you're eligible to get it, since there's a lot of stuff in there, and you'll probably enjoy some of it.) If you're a member of Renovation, vote at least in those categories you feel comfortable making value judgements -- you don't have to vote in every category, but you really should vote if you're eligible.
