At the Webby ceremony, the tradition is that all acceptance speeches must be limited to five words (take that, Twitter!).

- Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter, took the prize for breakout of the year. He said: "Creativity is a renewable resource."
- "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane was honored for his Web series "Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy." Said MacFarlane: "What is this for again?"
- Arianna Huffington, whose Huffington Post won for best political blog, said: "I didn't kill newspapers, OK?"
- Jimmy Fallon, cited for using the Internet to flog his taking over NBC's "Late Night," said: "Thank God Conan got promoted."
