The description is pretty simple, but I think includes a huge number of potentially great awardees:
We hope to hear about many ways people have “demonstrated exceptional leadership”. It may be standards, it may be coding, it may be explaining, it may be community, or it may well be something I haven’t thought of yet. What matters is that you can tell us why you think they should get an award.
We’ll be having the Fluent Advisory Board helping us select from that great and potentially huge list. That group includes Lea Varou (Independent), Doug Schepers (W3C), Bill Scott (PayPal), Mike Hostetler (appendTo), Scott Hanselman (Microsoft), and Paul Irish (Google).
Please let us know who you’d like to see recognized for their work, and we’ll do what we can recognize great people.
