2006 Webby Award Nomination Official Thank You Page:

I would like to acknowledge the support of so many people who have helped promote the website in order to gain votes for the People's Choice Award. First and foremost, I would like to thank all of the daily visitors to the website. In addition, I would like to thank the Webby Awards and the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences for the nomination of best science website for 2006.

The other four sites are very nice indeed: was nice enough to run an interview by Michael O'Neill. You can read about it here, and you can learn a bit about me.

There are so many people to thank, most notably my lovely wife Chanthirar for the design and layout of this website, my family and close friends, Stanford University Hospital - Department of Ophthalmology, Anka Systems Inc., Ophthalmic Imaging Systems, Swinburne Astronomy Online, Michael O'Neill, the awesome folks over at Little White Dog, and the letter M. The sanity of music has kept this project going so I also have to thank Rush, Boards of Canada, Al Di Meola, Planet X, Schiller, Wolfsheim and a touch of Rammstein. I also could not have done this without fresh sushi and home-made beef vegetable soup.

Some very nice things have been said about Astronomy Online as well - including reviews on the People's Choice website:

"The site looks amazing!" Dr. Alyssa A. Goodman, Professor of Astronomy and Director for Innovative Computing, Harvard University

"Impressive Science Website:

Astronomy Online meets all the criteria for an interesting, yet valuable science asset for those who love science and those who need to know about a topic. The website was easy to navigate, and I am impressed that this is a private (individual's) site. Let's tell everyone about it."

"Professional and Thorough:

This is a great resource for those with an interest in astronomy- well organized, featuring a great (collection) of valuable links and providing information that is well written and easy to understand. It's diversity is it's strength compared to the other entries being considered. Astronomy is a burgeoning field of inquiry and this site covers the entire gammit making it a great place to see the latest marvel, learn or conduct a search. That this is not the work of a huge team of people makes the site all the more amazing!"

Very nice site! It's well organized, very well written, and informative. The writing was easy to understand, but not condescending. I've only scratched the surface of what is presented here on this site, and I'm looking forward to delving in some more. I appreciate how well-thought out it is. It encompasses a lot of information in an easy to navigate site. In other words, I didn't get lost, even though it is huge!"

"Only the best:
