[Icehouse] Pyramid Awards for 2009?

Last fall there was a discussion about starting an annual "Best of the
Year" awards for pyramid games from 2009.  It was pointed out that
this year would be a good year to get started and have kinks worked
out before the 20th anniversary of Icehouse next year.  Given that
people were thinking about having it in conjunction with Origins, and
that they are starting to firm up the Origins schedule, it's a good
time to raise the question again.

Assuming there is enough interest to follow through with this, here
are issues about it that come to mind, and that need procedures or
policies decided on:

- Name and nature of award(s)
- Eligibility
- Nomination
- Selection of finalists
- Voting
- Relation to Origins
    - just have voting there (though not exclusively there)
    - just present the award there
    - do both
- Who will decide all these policies
- Who will actually run all this

I imagine that if a small committee were selected (self-selected?),
they could make most of the decisions.

I for one am willing to help run it.
