Government, dragons, traffic lights & Mippin?

Mippin is keeping some impressive company this week. Yesterday we were shortlisted by Google for their second Android Developers Challenge. Today we learn we're shortlisted by UK Government no less, for a new technology awards initiative called iAwards.

Okay, so the judging panel might not all be quite government, but iAwards is backed by Science and Innovation Minister Lord Drayson, plus Dragon's Den star James Caan. There's a real mix of award categories, including Energy and Environment (featuring environmentally friendly traffic lights), Cross-Application of Technology and Next Big Thing; Mippin has made it through to the last three in the Digital Communications category with our Buzz Widgets, so we'll be attending the ceremony next week and hopefully bumping in to some of the great and good from across the UK tech industry. With Mr Caan in tow, we might even see Mippin's "mobile content publishing" pitch on Dragons Den one day! What's really amazing though is how successfully tech is infiltrating all areas of our lives, and it will be great for Mippin and the work we do on mobile to be recognised alongside a wider range of tech development across so many other industries.
