First and foremost, congratulations to the mental_floss team for winning its first Webby award for best cultural blog. When Kara and I started putting the first daily content on the blog in September 2002, we had dreams that it would develop into something far beyond what we could dream. We're proud to still be around to see it. And thanks to all you wonderful readers as well!
