We're covering the Crunchies, live

Nik Fletcher and I are in the Herbst Theatre in downtown San Francisco covering the 2nd annual Crunchies -- billed as "our sometimes kitschy and irreverent awards ceremony" celebrating the best of the web. Or something. Perhaps Fake Steve Jobs said it best in this acceptance speech video.

Follow downloadsquad on Twitter for up-to-date activities, and at the end of the ceremony we'll provide a wrap-up. Who knows, maybe Loren Feldman will do one-handed pushups on the stage and prove just how weak the rest of us really are.

Update: It's currently the Crunchies version of halftime, with Paul Graham of Y Combinator talking about how startups can survive in these trying economic times...

Update 2: And now a few questions with Marissa Mayer, again about how crappy the economy is and advertising, startups, blah, blah. (Note: Most of the people backstage are filthy rich).
