maybe BT was already thinking along these lines.. what about
we call the tweaker award something like the ?tweaker
optional award?.  All of the above- the Fun Night, the
Tweaker award, the LifeTime achievement Award, can be
incorporated into the TIG with voting and all of that in the
Twiki pages, we?ll just need a little coordination.  The Fun
Night itself is a big project, but maybe we can pull it off
with some help from manufacturers, on a different (perhaps
smaller) scale.  BT do you have time to work on the FN in
the next few months?  the TIG resources are at your
disposal.   I can work on the award logistics with respect
to having it be a TIG feature with interactive voting.
we do have some time, between IBC and NAB.

Dave Tosh has been working as a coadministrator (amicus
emeritus level) of the TIG for a while now and helping me a
lot with various things including shifting the policies a
little.  He might be able to find a little time to work with
me on the projects above.
