Remember the Crunchies, the startup awards we talked about earlier this year that are being organized in partnership with TechCrunch, ReadWriteWeb and VentureBeat? We have an update for you — dates and awards categories — that is currently available at the Crunchies web site.
You can help surface the startups in the categories with which you feel most comfortable by nominating them. Nominations are open through Dec. 13. More specific outlines and fine print are available on this page. Of course, you can also lobby on behalf of your own startup by placing badges on your web site. The finalist voting kicks off Dec. 18, and will run for approximately one month before the awards ceremony, which will be held on Fri., Jan. 18 in San Francisco.
