I'm not really sure what this means just quite yet, but EffectiveUI was recently selected as a top 100 company by Always On. Here's how they selected us:
"For the AlwaysOn Media 100 list, hundreds of private companies—spanning numerous sectors, all stages of corporate development, as well as the globe—were nominated. To make the final selection of companies that excel in AlwaysOn’s five primary evaluation criteria—innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value creation, and media attention or “buzz”—the panel drew on industry expertise from KPMG; Bridge Bank; Merrill Corporation; Manatt,Phelps & Philips; and AlwaysOn editors."
Apparently this is a big deal. I like it because I enjoy seeing our name on other people's websites. Oppressed laptops of the world take note: we were chosen for the "Technology Enablers" category. That's right people - if you have a technology, we'll enable it. We're like feminism, but for iPhones; William Wallace for your Web Apps. FREEEEEDOOOMMMM!!
The best part of this is that our fearless leader, Anthony L. Franco, will be on stage at the Always On OnMedia event in NYC next week presenting to some of the industry's best and brightest. Best of luck boss, and be sure to enjoy some great sushi after the conference - you've earned it.
