It's official. Cruise Law is the top vote receiver in the Shorty Awards contest in crowd-sourced field of law for 2011.
For those of you who follow this blog or interact with me on Twitter, you know that I am a lawyer who believes in the power of communicating via the social media of blogs, Facebook and Twitter.
Last year I tied for first place in the law category. I then did the chivalrous thing of voting for my opponent, a lawyer in England, to break the tie. Yes I believe in Karma. What goes around comes around. This year I won in a landslide.
So what is the significance of the Shorty Awards in law? The Shorty Awards people say that the award recognizes the "best people and organizations on Twitter and social media."
Our blog is just 18 months old but has been a top 10 most popular blog for going on a year now.
