My Best Virtual Friends Nominations, 2009

Last year, in December, the Shorty Awards, gave me the opportunity to nominate and give thanks to all my best Twitter friends

Gabriela Grosseck alerted me, via Delicious, that Steve Hargadon had posted about the Edublog Awards 2009 Ceremony :

we asked those attending live in Elluminate to give a “shout out” to someone who had made a difference for them this past year. One of the downsides of an awards ceremony, and especially one in which there is an imperfect public nomination and voting process, is that it doesn’t really do justice to the larger sense of community and support that exists in our ed tech / social media / Classroom 2.0 / blogger world. We wanted the awards show to have a way to recognize the broader contributions that are made every day.

During the “shout out” I gave thanks to: Claudia Ceraso (fceblog), Lisa Lane, Patricia Hensley, David Truss, Sabrina De Vita, Luz Pearson, Gabriela Grosseck, Britt Watwood and… they didn’t give me enough time to nominate other great virtual friends like, Lorena Zanola, Nicola Avery, Malinka Ivanova, John Mak, Durff , Elizabeth Sheppard, Jennifer Verschoor, Leila Nachawati and many others

This is my post to say Thank You!! to all my best virtual friends during 2009 and to wish them a Happy New Year 2010.



  1. Thanks Eduardo – a very Happy New Year to you and family ! I learn so much from our conversations – thank you and here’s to a whole bunch more of them in 2010 !
