NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM's Internet Evolution received two prestigious honors at the 2010 Folio Eddie and Ozzie Awards, held on Tuesday, January 25, where it was recognized as the Best Business-to-Business Science Site as well as the Best Business-to-Business Technology/Computing/Telecom Website.
The Folio Eddie and Ozzie Awards is the magazine industry's most prominent contest, making this especially significant for Internet Evolution – which only launched in 2007 and has an editorial staff of four.
For Best B2B Science Site, Internet Evolution came in first place against The Scientist; and for Best B2B Technology/Computing/Telecom Website, Internet Evolution received the gold award against runners-up Network World and Computerworld, two long-standing publications in the IT industry, run by IDG.
"There's no question that Internet Evolution deserves these awards," said Tom Nolle, President of CIMI Corp. "A big reason is that it's created a strategy that engages both experts and ordinary users in a community that can then both expose market issues and contribute in a constructive way to solving industry problems. It's a prototype for the new paradigm of social knowledge dissemination."
Internet Evolution is run by DeusM (www.deusm.com), a UBM company that specializes in building highly engaged, highly qualified B2B communities based on a proprietary publishing system called Community in a Box (CiaB).
