Best of 604 for 2008

Rebecca Bollwitt of (and part-time Techvibes contributor) is running her Best of 604 hyper-local awards again this year and Techvibes is in the hunt for the Best Tech Site or Blog award

As often as I can, I try to highlight and promote local business, organizations, bloggers, and online triumphs. In 2007 I started the Best of 604 wherein I listed some of my favourite things around the region.

This year, I wanted to leave the nomination and voting to the public (that way no one can wonder what my mystery formula was for calculating winners). The nominees do NOT have to be blogs – they can be any website that fits into any of the 14 categories.

Who do you turn to for information? What site do you check first thing in the morning (or ten times a day)? Who do you love to read? This is all about the best of our region, and we should all be proud of the many accomplishments of our friends, neighbours, and peers. It’s the people’s choice awards for Metro Vancouver online.

Best of 604 is open for nominations until December 4th and then Bollwitt will flip the switch and turn on the official voting for one week. Best of 604 wraps up on December 11th with an awards reception at The Cellar on West 4th in Kitsilano. Free tickets for the awards reception are available through EventBrite – cash donations for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society will be collected at the door.
