Back during Bubble 1.0, Silicon Alley Reporter was the journal-of-record for the New York City tech scene and their Silicon Alley 100 was the de facto list of the city's movers and shakers. The Reporter went the way of so many of the start-ups they profiled, but now website Silicon Alley Insider continues the tradition of listing the 100 most influential New York digirati.
Now chances are pretty darn good that I won't be on the list (slated for a November 26th release), but I am on the "unofficial" Silicon Alley 100 People's Choice list. By pimping myself on Twitter and Facebook, I've managed to boost my position to #9 (as of this writing) but I say, hey, why not #1 (or at least Top 3.)
While you're at it, you'll get to play around with a cool new Web 2.0 platform called BricaBox. This Silicon Alley start-up is the brainchild of Nate Westheimer and I can only describe it as a mash-up of blog, wiki, mapping, tagging, community and widget. I haven't seen anything else like it and am looking forward to seeing where it goes.
You can argue whether I should be #1 - or even #9 - on the SA100 People's Choice list, but if by casting your vote for me you get to check out some new 2.0 tech, who am I to stop you? Go get 'em, tigers.
