TechRepublic wins 10 awards in the 2009 Digital Azbees

The ASBPE handed out its 2009 Digital Azbee awards on Friday and TechRepublic came away with 10 winners.

The American Society of Business Publication Editors handed out its 2009 Digital Azbee Awards on Friday in San Francisco. The ASBPE gave out awards (gold, silver, and bronze) in 26 categories for U.S. business-to-business publications.

I'm happy to report that TechRepublic won 10 awards, including six first place awards, the most of any publication. Here are the winners, listed with the category, the award level, and the winning TechRepublic entry:

TechRepublic was also one of four finalists (along with BusinessWeek, CIO, and InfoWorld) for the big prize, the 2009 Website of the Year award. BusinessWeek was the ultimate winner, and the rest of us were awarded Honorable Mentions as finalists.

Congratulations to BusinessWeek for its well-deserved honor and to all of the 2009 Digital Azbee winners. The judges for these awards are B2B editors from publications across the country, and it's always very gratifying to be singled out by your peers for outstanding work.

I also have to send thanks and congratulations to all of the TechRepublic editors. I'm thrilled to see that the industry has recognized them for the outstanding work they do every day to produce some the Web's most useful tips, tutorials, and advice for IT professionals.

Last but certainly not least, I must give a shout-out to the loyal members of the TechRepublic community. The fact that you show up and engage the TechRepublic staff, contributors, and the IT world in quality conversations is what makes TechRepublic so valuable.

In spite of the brickbats. Unfortunately, now you are obliged to keep the whole huffing, puffing, screaming engine together and working at a still greater tempo for another year! I'll see what I can do to help.

like live audio discussions between members, add video and let the entertainment begin. Or would that just be too crazy.
