Who's your IT Community Hero?

Tis the season for us at ZDNet Towers to start thinking about planning the CNET Networks UK Business Technology Awards, which celebrate the past year's tech successes (and are an excuse for a great party). This year, we're adding a new category: the IT Community Hero, given to reward community efforts within the tech industry.

Tis the season for us at ZDNet Towers to start thinking about planning the CNET Networks UK Business Technology Awards, which celebrate the past year's tech successes (and are an excuse for a great party). This year, we're adding a new category: the IT Community Hero, given to reward community efforts within the tech industry. While we have our ideas, what are yours? Here are the criteria:

The winner will be the person, team or organisation who has done the most to make the lives and jobs of people in IT easier and more productive through building connections and fostering a sense of community. The judges will be looking for a strong community focus on IT through inclusivity, outreach and collaboration. Evidence of actual benefits to and active participation by community members is important.

You can suggest anybody you can make a case for--from a usergroup admin to a top exec, from an open-source leader to a corporation. Just post a comment under this blog with your suggestion, with any URLs that we can check out. If you really appreciate the work someone's been doing, this is your chance to tell everybody about it.
