chip.de Digital Lifestyle Award
We’re not obsessed about awards, but we like them. They show that someone, somewhere thinks we’ve done something right. Which is always nice to know.
So we have just got another award from Germany from Chip, the largest end user IT and CE magazine in Germany. More precisely, it’s the ["Digital Lifestyle Award 2005" in the personal communication category](http://www.chip.de/artikel/c1_artikelunterseite_16438313.html?tid1=&tid2). The site says:
> “1st place, Skype (23.4%) — Skype is on its way to become the synonym for Internet-telephony. This freeware helped to spark the voice-over-IP-boom”.
This award is interesting because the votes were cast by Chip online visitors. According to Chip online, over 70,000 visitors participated and made this the largest event of this kind of Internet voting in Europe.
