Nominate a Villain for “The Higgy”

William Higginbotham

Last fall I introduced HT to The Al Copeland Humanitarian of the Year Award, given out by Jay Greene at his blog (where I co-contribute). The Al is in its fifth year of honoring heroes who contribute to the good of humanity. This year I’m tickled pink to bring you a brand new award from the same source, The William Higinbotham Inhumanitarian of the Year Award. “The Higgy” will honor (in a manner of speaking) those who distinguish themselves by subtracting from the good of humanity.

I first singled out Higinbotham for (dis)honor a while back, to explain why he would never deserve the Al Copeland award in spite of his having invented the video game. This week, I nominated David Sarnoff for The Higgy, for his outstanding contribution to crushing innovation and ruining the lives of inventors who seek to serve mankind.

Head over to JPGB and nominate your favorite scoundrels!
