Amazing: UPS students snag top SXSW blog award

If you missed the Wired report on Sunday, two English majors from UPS in Tacoma won the top blog awards at the South By Southwest conference happening this week in Austin.

Seniors Nick Martens, 21, and Kevin Nguyen, 22, beat pro bloggers to win the best blog category with “The Bygone Bureau: A Journal of Modern Thought.”

They’re the two in the big photo on Wired’s blog from Sunday’s award ceremony.

Bygone Bureau was started in 2007 as “a journal of modern thought, specializing in travel writing and cultural criticism.”

It would have been a good name for the online version of the P-I.
