At the beginning of July, KPMG and Backbone Magazine announced the first Pick 20 Winners - Canada's up and coming pioneers who are leading the Web 2.0 evolution on the web. I had the privilege of serving as one of the judges for these awards, along with seven other esteemed colleagues of mine in marketing, technology and venture capital.
The full list of Pick 20 winners is below. Of the winners, One Degree has interviewed Kaboose, BlogTO and Fresh Books, had contributors from MovieSet, quoted Cambrian House, and showcased Thought Farmer.
