For much the same reasons Hacker Noon decided not to put good ideas behind pop-ups or paywalls — nor abuse your personal data to target you with creepy ads — we also decided that you don’t have to be a social media guru or have 50k followers on Twitter to earn the recognition that comes with a 2020 Noonie Nomination.

Make Jeremy’s day and vote for him in the Internet’s most independent and community-driven awards: NOONIES.TECH.
