It is that time of the year – where you go shopping, eat a lot more than you should, party way too much and of course, gear up for the new year. And the new year brings you the technology industry’s annual celebration of innovation and entrepreneurship: the Crunchies, an event we co-host with our colleagues over at TechCrunch and VentureBeat. In other words, it is time for you to snag the tickets that are up for grabs. Today, we are releasing the second batch of tickets and of course, vote for all your favorite startups. And yes, there is an after-party!
