For what feels like the fourth or fifth year running, Ausdroid has been a finalist in Australia’s IT Journalism Awards, and this year we’ve been Highly Commended once again. Jason and Neerav attended The Lizzies last night in Sydney and flew the flag for the team, and in the week of our 8th birthday, we’ve been recognised again for the quality of our work.

Having thanked everyone during our 8th Birthday story, I won’t go over old ground again so quickly, but I think this deserves another thank you to our audience (for motivating us to do what we love), to our partners for working with us, to Ausdroid’s team for producing quality content day in and day out for almost 3,000 days straight, and to our friends and families for putting up with us while we do all of this.

Yes, it’s a shame not to have won – though we have a couple of times in years past – but to be highly commended amongst such a competitive crowd is no small task. In this year’s finalists were Ausdroid Media, EFTM.com, Moonshot Podcast (Kristofor Lawson & Andrew Moon), Pickr, Player2.net.au, Progress Bar, Stevivor, Tech Guide, and Vooks, and to come runner-up to Moonshot (congrats, Kris and Andrew) is fantastic.

A big shout out to Phil and his team at Media Connect for a great night out enjoyed by all.

Chris Rowland   Editor and Publisher

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.
