MacTech 25 Voting Through 31 October 2009

Send Article to a Friend

MacTech Magazine has once again opened up voting for the 2009 MacTech 25, a collection of the most influential people in the Macintosh community. Unlike other lists, the MacTech 25 is aimed at calling out the people who provide the most technical assistance to the Mac community, whether it's through writing, programming, training, speaking, technical support, or other efforts.

We're proud that various members of the TidBITS staff have made the list in past years (see "TidBITS Staffers Honored in 2007 MacTech 25," 11 June 2007, and "Adam & Tonya Engst Honored in MacTech 25," 17 July 2006), and we'd be pleased if you'd consider voting for those of us who have provided you with the most useful technical content of late. Apart from MacTech staff and Apple employees, who aren't eligible, we encourage you to dig deep and think about the people who make the most technical difference in your use of the Mac.

Voting is open through 31 October 2009.
