It’s time for our readers & listeners to cast their ballots, determining the best and the worst of the Internets in 2014.
The list of 50 nominees was determined after a thorough review of a year’s worth of Fortnight on the Internets podcasts and listener discussions on our Facebook page. They represent a cross-section of the year’s most notable viral items, disgraces to humanity, controversial figures, and enjoyable podcast topics, encompassing everything from videos to Tumblrs to memes to movements. Some made us laugh, some made us cry, some made us shake our fists angrily at the computer screen.

Voting will run through 5pm on Saturday, December 13th. The votes will be tallied and the results announced in our final podcast of the year a few days later. The upper echelon of vote-getters will join our previous inductees in the Hall of Internet Fame.
