The HoF is under construction, but each year we remind you of past nominees and inductees. We're working on that part now. Stay tuned. Or whatever we're supposed to say on the Web.

Maybe. If the change is significant enough.


It's up to you to convince the category editor that the product you're nominating is SO DIFFERENT than what precdeded it that it MUST be considered new.


My favorite example is the Windows product line from Microsoft. Yes, Microsoft has called every PC operating system it made since 1982 "Windows." But Windows '95 and Windows XP were very different products, even though they both ended up being great excuses to switch to a Mac.

From a PR practiioner:


Is this award geared toward service providers only, or would a software/services vendor qualify?
