There Were So Many Votes For The Crunchies, We Needed Some Extra Help Counting Them

The votes for the Crunchies are in. But there were so many, 350,000, that we needed some extra help counting them. In the video above, Mike explains the voting procedures and reveals who we hired to count the votes to make sure nothing goes wrong. These guys are the best at what they do. (Okay, maybe the second best after this guy, but they were all we could afford).

All the votes are counted. We won’t announce the winners until the award ceremony on Friday night at the Herbst Theater in San Francisco. We have some great entertainment lined up, including more videos, the Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra, the Richter Scales and a few more special guests. The after-party will be at City Hall, with DJ ZTrip, a game room, a photo gallery, and some gadget giveaways. There are still a few tickets left.
