I’m actually vacationing in an undisclosed location right now – all right, it’s Northern Italy – so I’ll keep this short (Internet access here is really slow).
We’ve gotten an incredible response to the Forrester Groundswell Awards. The final tally is
149 151 entries, about twice what we got last year. Half of these came in during the last couple of days of the entry period, which ended September 9.
While the entry period is over, you can still add your own ratings and reviews for the next several weeks, or at least see all the applications even if you don’t want to comment. Click here to see all the entries.
As with last year, the Talking category attracted the most entries, with 34. We were also amazed by the very high participation by entrants in the Social Impact category – clearly non-profit and pro-social organizations and individuals have begun to realize the amazing power of the groundswell.
Here’s how the entries break down:
Social Impact 11%
Our Web team has been working overtime getting all the entries posted, so if yours took a little while to show up, we apologize for the delay. All the entries should be up soon.
We’ve begun to evaluate the flood of entries and we’ll be announcing the winners at Forrester’s Consumer Forum in Dallas, October 28 and 29. We look forward to seeing you there.
