TechRepublic wins five 2010 Digital Azbee awards

TechRepublic has been named the winner five 2010 Digital Azbee awards, including an Honorable Mention for B2B Website of the Year.

Yes, you can file this one in the "tooting your own horn" folder, but I'm happy to share that on Wednesday TechRepublic was named the winner five 2010 Digital Azbee awards, including an Honorable Mention for B2B Website of the Year.

The American Society of Business Publication Editors handed out awards in 27 categories for web sites and online publications that serve business professionals. The ASBPE named gold, silver, and bronze winners in each category and named the B2B Website of the Year plus three Honorable Mentions for the top award.

This was the second annual Digital Azbee competition and for the second year in a row TechRepublic was one of top winners with five awards. Here's what we won:

Naturally, we are thrilled that the Azbees have recognized TechRepublic as a top quality destination. It was the second straight year we received an Honorable Mention for B2B Website of the Year. It's also interesting to note that we received awards for our e-newsletter, blog, and video offerings -- three very different categories -- which is a testament to what a great editorial staff we have because it's the same small team of TechRepublic editors that puts all of this stuff together. I tip my hat to them and I'm glad to see them get the industry recognition that they deserve.

But, the thing we're most proud of is winning the gold award for "Integrated Social Media Community," because at its heart, TechRepublic has always been a peer-to-peer community that is about IT professionals helping each other do one of the toughest jobs on the planet. Our editorial team simply serves as a catalyst and an organizer. So, thanks to all of you who are part of the TechRepublic Community. We share this last award with you. We should go cut some virtual cake or something.

Congratulations to Toni and Bill on winning awards in their categories. And congratulations (and thanks, as well) to you, Jason, for your leadership and vision. Thanks to all the blog contributors, as well; even when I think you're full of it, you at least have me thinking. :) And many, many thanks to Sonja, Serena, Mary, and the many others who work behind the scenes to make it all happen. I raise a [_]3 to you. And you did it all in spite of the peers! :p etu

E-Mail Jason and offer to [b]Help[/b] him. That will scare the Begebers out of him and he's start to wonder what he's been doing wrong. :^0 Col

3% said Yes, because we have free soda and Thursday massages 90% said No, because our editors don't Tweet, don't cluck like chickens, and are just inherently uncool 4% said Steve Jobs 3% said Linux. Well done, everybody! [_]3

Of course the Azbees are only confirming what we already knew, that TechRepublic is a great resource in a number of different areas for IT professionals. As for cake, well, next June perhaps. In the meantime, I'm sure you can raise a glass at a local watering hole at some point.
