San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 13, 2008
Every year for more than a decade, hundreds of leading web startups have gathered to compete at the annual South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Web Awards. This year, Mosio , the live, social mobile question and answer service, was honored with first place in the mobile category.
"We were thrilled to win the Mobile Award. South by Southwest is one of those conferences respected by both the industry and tech savvy consumers. Winning the award not only validates our social mobile Q&A service, but also the dedication of the Mosio community," said Noel Chandler, Co-Founder and CEO of Mosio. "Mosio users are always there to help others with useful answers, entertaining opinions and kind favors, every minute of every day, no matter where they might be."
Mosio's unique, community-based question and answer service provides quick, personalized answers for free on any mobile device via SMS, Email, Twitter and Jott (voice-to-text). Unlike other services, Mosio's answers come from real people, in real-time, with real personalities. For example, users often ask for specific opinions on questions such as "Have you been to Costa Rica? What's the best thing you did?" or for favors such as "will someone call Gialina Pizzeria in SF and make a reserve for 3 people at 7:30 (name: mosio) pretty plz?"
"Each year we're seeing an increase in the quality and creativity of entries to the Web Awards," explained SXSW Web Awards Director, Shawn O'Keefe. "We congratulate all the 2008 Web Awards winners and look forward to following their success and stories in the future."
The 2008 SXSW Interactive Web Awards recognizes the best new websites and celebrates those who are building and implementing tomorrow's trends. Other notable winners this year include Flock, Wikinvest, World Without Oil and Wired.
