TechCrunch UK named best Web 2.0 and business blog

TechCrunch UK has been named the best “Web 2.0 and business blog” in the UK, by the readers of Computer Weekly magazine.

The IT Blog Awards 08 sifted hundreds of entries and asked readers to vote on their favourite blogs.

The judges said:

In the Web 2.0 and business blogs category we were looking for our readers’ pick of blogs about social media and web 2.0 and how they impact on business, from benefits to risks, and the way that they change society and the demands and expectations of corporate employees. All the blogs listed were nominated by Computer Weekly readers, whittled down to a final shortlist by our judges, and then put back to our readers for the final vote to select the winner and runner-up.

After closing for nine months and being re-launched in September last year, I’m happy to say TechCrunch UK & Ireland is on a great footing going forward and is well placed to expand its coverage across Europe. Huge thanks are due to you the readers, commenters, and now our guest authors, for your support and encouragement.
