Reuters. By Jim Finkle - The hacker community is organizing its own version of the Oscars. Two groups of "hacker activists" and Wikileaks are competing to take the prize.
Sony also will be recognized at the ceremony to be held next week for the dubious distinction of being the victim of hackers.
Although Pwnies, was named as the event may have humorous connotations, the award represents a serious attempt to recognize people and events of greatest impact for the hacker community in the last year, said Dino Dai Zovi, one of the organizers.
