In a surprise development the Government 2.0 Taskforce has taken the early lead in the Computerworld Top 10 Most Influential 2009 Readers Choice award.
The Computerworld Top 10 Most Influential for 2009 highlights the people, products, organisations, trends or events that have had the greatest influence on the ICT industry and community.
With several hundred votes already being placed, the Government 2.0 Taskforce is followed closely by the AFACT v iiNet court case and then the iPhone and PIPE Pacific Cable (PPC-1).
Not far behind the leaders is the NBN, Google, Open Source, Twitter, Netbooks, Windows 7, the CSIRO wireless LAN win, and the ISP-level Internet content filter.
Voting will remain open until the end of January and you can vote for what you think was most influential as many times as you like. Go to the voting now.
We’ll then announce the winners in February with a full write up in our February / March print edition.
Earlier in December we counted down to the Computerworld Panel’s winner with one article each day from 10th place to number one throughout the month. Below is the final list:
