We're almost there!
Voting closes this Friday (February 5) at noon EST.

Any nominations have already been converted to votes. Please spread the word during these last few days!

Thanks for helping say "Thanks!" to Chris for his tireless work to collaboratively explore positive and powerful uses of social media.

All the best,

Had been meaning to come back and say a final "thank you."

Chris did win the Shorty Award for Social Media!

This award is just starting, but because the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is behind the awards, it's got a good chance of sticking around and growing.

Now if only there was a Nobel Prize in Social Media ;-)

Thanks again to everybody who chipped in and for continuing to support #smchat

All my best,
