The Crunchies are Live!
It’s kept us awake the last couple of days until ungodly hours, but it’s now live. The Crunchies is an awards ceremony co-hosted by GigaOm, Read/WriteWeb, VentureBeat and TechCrunch, meant to celebrate internet technology and innovation. You can nominate companies for awards in 20 categories, and out of those nominations, 5 candidates are picked for voting on each category. Then in January 2008, a ceremony in the San Francisco Herbst Theatre will award the best of the best.
In the last few days our team built the infrastructure for the crunchies, designed the brand for ceremony and sites and built the web applications to allow voting and nominating companies. Now we definitely need a couple of hours of rest. All in all, it’s been a good time working with the people at Techcrunch again.
Note: Want to participate by nominating a company? Visit the Crunchies weblog and the nomination page and vote away! You can catch more posts about the crunchies at the participating blogs: Read/WriteWeb, VentureBeat, GigaOm and Techcrunch.
