Actually they are all winners, but I did join the Elluminate Awards program to listen in while I worked on other projects. The Elluminate session was effective for the presentation tonight, as it allowed for participants to question the process, congratulate the winners, acknowledge 2.0 folks not nominated, and make suggestions live for broadening and/or making the awards program better.
Sue Waters and Steve Hargadon asked us to share pictures of how we viewed the Awards ceremony, so here is my contribution. Notice the color tabs as I open the winners pages. The page showing is the list so I can scroll down as they review the categories, and I can copy the blog/url right into my own current post. The bottom left is the window from the Elluminate session covering the awards. FUN!
