Nominate me today, operators standing by :-) ! I figure what we (Richard, Boris, Kris and myself) are doing with blogging and citizen journalism at VanEats, Urban Vancouver, 2010, Battlestar Aggregatica, Photography Hack, and podcasting at Dogma Radio etc. qualifies under "Trendsetters" and "Practitioners" and what Bryght (I would nominate Boris, James, and Adrian) has done with technology like Drupal and projects like Ourmedia qualifies under "Tool Smiths". But of course, I am biased!
