The first Technology4Good Awards attracted 250 nominations; each one a good news story showing how technology, altruism, hard work and skill combined to make life better for people who are digitally excluded, disabled or disadvantaged.
The finalists included:
All the details of the finalist, winners and best of show can be found at http://www.technology4goodawards.org.uk/finalists/. It is worth looking at the full list of finaiists as it is inspiring and provides opportunities to join the organisations, replicate the idea, use or reuse the technolgy solutions. The award ceremony was a fun event with Mariella Frostrup compering, funky awards made of spare parts from machines and computers, and voting for the best in show by vigourously waving glow sticks.
Thanks to AbilityNet and their partners for organising this year's awards and I look forward to even more good stories at T4G 2012.
