Shortlisted for the Computer Weekly IT Blog Awards 2010

(Falls off chair)

A hat tip to @MadMaxMel on Twitter who has just alerted me to the fact that this blog has been shortlisted for the Computer Weekly IT Blog Awards 2010.

If you enjoy reading this blog and find it of value, then on behalf of IT and the R&D team I would love it if you cared to place a vote in our favour. The blog has been shortlisted in the following two categories:

  • CIO / IT Director (the best blogs written by and for CIOs and IT directors, where you will find insights from senior management across the industry), and
  • Individual IT professional male (blogs that detail an individual perspective, not a company line, of life in the IT industry. Any male blogger working in IT is eligible).

It's fantastic to even have reached the shortlist - it's a credit to the great innovation undertaken across Tesco and that enables the content of this blog to be of such interest to people inside and outside of our organisation.

Post a Comment

As this blog grows in readership - and because it carries the Tesco brand - I have had to become more careful about the sort of comments that are acceptable. The good news is that I'm a champion of free speech so please be as praising or as critical as you wish! The only comments I DON'T allow through are:

1. Comments which criticise an individual other than myself, or are critical of an organisation other than Tesco. This is simply because they cannot defend themselves so is unfair and possibly libellous. Comments about some aspect of Tesco being better/worse than another equivalent organisation are allowed as long as you start by saying "in my personal opinion.." or "I think that...". ... followed by a "...because.." and some reasoned argument.

2. Comments which are totally unrelated to the context of the original article. If I have written about a mobile app and you start complaining about the price of potatoes then your comment isn't going stay for long!

3. Advertising / web links / spam.

4. Insulting / obscene messages.

Ok, rules done - now it's your go:
