Hi Elmar,

I am not debating the good will of the T3N crew, nor am I concerned 
about having an official blessing for any and every activity with TYPO3. 
But T3N is definitely a niche platform and unavailable to those who 
don't speak German, cannot get a paper copy where they live, or don't 
want to invest the bucks for such a magazine.
This is the reason why I don't think organizing an extension award for 
TYPO3 in T3N is the way to go, unless you make it T3N reader's choice award.
