Congratulations to this year's NetSquared Featured Projects, and to all of you who contributed and participated. We are still blown away by the response, the quality of the projects and the range of great ideas.

We know some of you are going to be really happy. Others will be disappointed. We hope that most of you are glad to have been a part of this open, less-than-perfect process. No doubt you've got lots to say about it and we want to hear it.

Share your ideas and suggestions in the comments of this post:

The Featured Projects will be going on to the NetSquared Conference and have an opportunity to receive cash, tech and consulting resources, but we hope that the NetSquared Community at large will continue to support all of the nominated projects with suggestions, resources and advice.

Thanks for being a part of the process! We look forward to your continued involvement in the NetSquared Community.

The Net2 Team
