Ausdroid a finalist for Best Independent Media in the 2017 ACS IT Journalism Awards

It’s that time of year again where the players in technology journalism get together for a night of fun and frivolity and Sydney’s Luna Park to find out who amongst them has been judged — by their peers — to be the best in a number of categories.

In 2017, Ausdroid has nominated for the Best Independent Media category for the fourth year running, and after winning the last two years, we’re very excited to be in the running for a third gong.

We’re up against some very strong competition this year, including Trevor Long’s Everything for the Man (EFTM) and Stephen Fenech’s Tech Guide. Freddy Bros is in the running again, as well as other publications in the gaming and tech space.

We’re very excited to reach the list of finalists again this year, and can’t wait to catch up with our colleagues in the fairly small cadre of technology journalists on Friday night.

Although we’ve not won anything yet, this is a timely reminder to us of what makes Ausdroid possible; without you guys reading, commenting and engaging with us, there’d be no reason for us to do this. Thanks for making our hobby so enjoyable and rewarding for all of us, too.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
