The 2001 Webby Awards were held in San Francisco at the War Memorial Opera House on July 18, 2001, hosted by Alan Cumming.[1] The Lifetime Achievement Award, which debuted this year, went to Ray Tomlinson and Douglas Englebart.[2] It was the first awards held after the dot-com crash; as a result, they were smaller and quieter than in years past.[3][4]
