BETF Executive Director Wayne Hicks Voted One of the Top 50 Amazing Tech Tastemakers

I just learned from the folks over at Black Web 2.0 that I'm one of the Top 50 Amazing Tech Tastemakers.

You may recall that we told you about the Top 50 Amazing Tech Tastemakers campaign a few weeks ago. Since then a number of you took the time to cast your vote on who you think should be a Top 50 Tech Tastemaker and the results and activity have been both interesting and exciting to watch.   The voting ended yesterday and we ended up as #25 on the list!

I think it is wonderful that the @BDPA name is forever immortalized as a 'tastemaker'.
Tastemakers are the developers, the thinkers, and the risk takers. They're the entrepreneurs that sink their last dollar into their dream, the writers who report on it, and the evangelists that spread the word. Tastemakers are not influenced, they create influence and they do it through amazingly bold and innovative action. They are redefining the world of tech and ensuring the digital revolution will be televised, tweeted, blogged, and crowd-sourced.
Thank you to everyone who helped get us listed smack dab in the middle of this list! Check out who made the final Top 50 Amazing Tech Tastemakers list!
