Social Awards 2016: BUI and BC detail

Next up are two more categories for my own appreciation awards to be announced March 6th, nominees for the third and fourth category have been set.

Best User Interface on a Social Media Product--award is an appreciation for excellence in providing means of communicating that best enables users, with a worldwide focus. Social media crosses many language and cultural barriers which test the limits of humanity's ability to communicate. Nominees are to be user interfaces on any social media device.

Nominees for 2016 BMSA's BUI are: UI Apple; UI Android;

Found myself with only two nominees for this category which stood out above all the rest. Actually it's kind of hard to think of any others. That kind of dominance is incredible.

It's also maybe unfortunate as I debate what to do here for future awards.

Best Coder(s) Open Source Software Product(s)--open source allows the ability to see which code works, and excellence in coding should be recognized in order to facilitate more of it. Nominees are to be selected from the open source community for an open source product or products that have strong social features. Nominees are to be presented in alphabetical order by last name followed by groups in alphabetical order.

Nominees for 2016 BMSA's BC are: Apache Software Foundation coders

Maybe the hardest category for me, as it involves people only, it is also one I see as extremely important to remember that behind the software that does all these amazing things there are the people who write it.

Without the coders, we have nothing.

Realized that it was good to recognize the people who do so much for the underlying infrastructure. So went with one group, and as the only nominees are also the winners.

Don't plan on doing that in general, but this time I think it works well.
