What an excellent surprise. My firm, Imaginatik, I received an e-mail today from a blogger, Bruce Elgort, that we are finalists for the Lotus Award for Best Industry Solution. The awards themselves will be posted on lotus.com at http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/awards2008/ .
There are several things that I like about this:
– we did not know we were a finalist, we had not received any official communication or heads-up… and yet someone else found us, blogged about us, and shared the news
– there seem to be no boundaries on the power of Collective Genius / aggregate intelligence / wisdom of crowds… anything can happen, and it usually does
– I am proud once again that we were nominated by our clients – and I’d like to thank Rob, Melissa, Thomas, Ann and Fred for all their support (they know who they are – take a bow!)
Right, time to let them know and thank them all personally. A perhaps I’ll treat myself to a glass of champagne this evening 🙂
