Gold Winner:
The Power Party
Imagine for a moment that you’re an ex-music-industry guy who’s now in the technology business. You regularly host parties at your house for your friends, including some from the music and technology scenes. There’s mingling, maybe some dancing. Sound like fun?

Silver Winner:
Hidden Grandeur

Bronze Winner:
