The Cyber ballot awards were naturally the highlight of the night, honoring the people behind the phenomenal growth of the Internet in the Philippines. ( Naturally, they were mostly people who were earlier featured in WIRED! Philippines)

It was also a night for nostalgia, and people were reminiscing about the early days of the Internet. ( Andy Liao writes about Remembering the Days of Philippine cyberspace before the Internet. )
