2008 Tech Museum Awards Global Call for Nominations

Tech Museum Award: a crystal globe atop a silicon ingot cylinder
I wanted to put in a plug for the Tech Museum Awards. We've been a Laureate twice (for Bookshare.org and Martus) in the past, and it's a great honor and a great event. If you know someone whose work embodies technology serving humanity, nominate them by tomorrow! [And, no, we're not looking for people to nominate a Benetech project this year: spread the wealth]. Here's the blurb from the nice people at the Tech Museum:

Nomination Deadline: March 24, 2008

Nominations are being accepted for the 2008 Tech Museum Awards, an international Awards Program that honors innovators from around the world who are applying technology to benefit humanity. 25 Laureates will be honored at a Gala event on November 12, 2008 and five Laureates will share a cash prize of $250,000. Self-nominations are accepted and encouraged. Individuals, nonprofit organizations, and for-profit companies are all eligible. Reward those making a difference and nominate today at http://www.techawards.org.
