Tom over at WellUrban has been leading the campaign to get Wellington added to the excellent GridSkipper site (an online urban travel guide which is part of the same online blog empire that includes Gawker, Defamer and Gizmodo, amongst others).

As such, Wellington is now in competition with Baku – capital of Azerbaijan – for a hallowed spot on GridSkipper. And if we can’t rally enough votes to see off the Bakuites (Bakites? Bakunians? Bakuista?), well, we probably don’t deserve that spot.

Head over to here to vote.

UPDATE. The GridSkipper poll was playing up, but should be back now. Go here, scroll down a bit, and there it is. (Wellington winning by 47 to 31 votes at the time of writing this).
