Steve Spalding over at How To Split An Atom reminded me of something I’d been meaning to mention: Mashable’s new Open Web Awards have begun. It’s kind of like a crowdsourced award program, in which people get to nominate and then vote on the entrants in different categories such as Social Bookmarking or Photo Sharing. More than 20 blogs are taking part in hosting the awards and taking nominations, including Steve’s blog and some others you might have heard of such as Techdirt, MG Siegler’s fine blog ParisLemon and WatchMojo from Ashkan Karbasfrooshan.

  1. Thanks for the nod Matt. I think this show is a great opportunity for some less well known startups to get some traction. Hopefully, the nominations keep rolling in.

  2. Thanks Mathew – yeah we're all taking nominations so stop on by and leave your favorites for each of the 13 categories in the comments to make sure they make to the next (voting) round.
