The Noonies—the tech industry's greenest awards; built by Hacker Noon in partnership with Stream—was conceptualized to recognize the best and worst peoples and products of the internets, in 2019 and beyond.
With over 55,000 votes cast—for 457 Noonies nominees—across 50 awards categories, we're extremely excited to announce the winners of these prestigious awards - only two of which were compromised by inauthentic voting behaviour!
"The Noonies! Much thanks to the community for taking the time to cast 50k+ votes, determining the Hacker Noon award winners," said David Smooke. "It was fun. Great to see the community make their cases for their favorite Noonie nominees. Overall, we're also excited that we got our feet wet in custom voting technology. We look forward to contributing more to how the internet curates, ranks and distributes content."
