This week I'll keep my editorial short. Instead of reading my ramblings, take a few minutes to go to Developer.com and fill out a nomination for your favoriate products that have come out over the last year (or are due out in the next month or two). You can nominate your favorite products at:

http://nl.internet.com/ct.html?rtr=on&s=1,2pp1,1,fkrt,je20,jorm,i5r0

There are categories for Technology, Framework, Development Tool, Web Service Product, Database, Java, .NET Tool, Open Source tools, and more.

If a product doesn't get nominated, it can't win!

Until next week...

Brad!
