San Francisco, Calif. is the home of the Crunchies, a competition and award ceremony that aims to honor the most interesting startups, internet and technology improvements, and creations of the year. The Crunchies is co-hosted by GigaOm, VentureBeat and TechCrunch, and like many competitions these days, it’s the Internet community that chooses the winners.
At the fourth annual Crunchies in January 2011, Twitter was celebrated as the best startup of 2010, while Andrew Mason of Groupon won Best CEO. You can view all of the 2010 winners at the techcrunch.com. Who knows what next year’s awards will bring, but if you’re a true technophile, you’ll make sure to be there.
