We obviously could use some help understanding this whole Internet thing. So we asked our readers and a team of judges who have spent way longer in the field than we have to find the best online resources for S.F. (and because this is the Internet, parts of the Bay Area). We stayed up many many nights tallying, e-mailing, and discovering. And to celebrate, is hosting the S.F. Web Awards 2010.

We brought in a bunch of people from our online community  -- including Laughing Squid's Scott Beale, Tech Blogger Robert Scoble, Digg's Aubrey Sabala, SF Appeal's Eve Batey, Twitter's Robin Sloan, Sfgate's Max Garrone, SFist's Brock Keeling, MTV's Maya Baratz, Sweet Melissa's Melissa Griffin, Mission Mission's Allan Hough, Uptown Almanac's Kevin Montgomery, StyleSeat's Melody McCloskey, and VVM new media staff -- and made them comb through the nominees and suggest their favorites (hey, Dr. Jang scares the shit out of us too). And to keep it fair, none of the judges voted in a category they're affiliated with. Check out the winners below and check here for more info on how to attend our Web Awards

Party between 5-9 p.m at 111 Minna tonight #sfwebawards.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
