Netshaken, not stirred

Dotcom Cinderellas are mothballing their glad rags today after the organisers behind a sparkling evening out decided to cancel the e-industry celebration. According to the Guardian, the organisers of the Netshake Awards (nauseatingly described as the "'Oscars' for Britain's Net industry") decided to boot the ball and awards ceremony into touch because of the sorry state of e-share prices. Apparently, it didn't seem right that that the e-gods and e-goddesses of the e-industry should be whooping it up when thousands of small investors were staring poverty in the face after losing an e-packet in dotcommode companies. Organisers have pledged to refund the ticket money for the ball, due to be held at the Natural History Museum next month, which cost £165 a throw. Bearing all this in mind, isn't it interesting that when The Register contacted the Netshake Awards ticket hotline the sales rep was perfectly happy and prepared to sell us a ticket - or ten. No one from Netshake was available for comment. ® Links Netshake
