Website security in corporate America

Nominations are invited to name and shame the best and the worse players in the global messaging industry.

Mobile messaging forum 160characters is running the contest as part of its 2005 Global Messaging Awards on 15 June. Any company or person can be nominated either for pushing the industry forward - or hindering its development.

You can send your nominations for good guys or bad guys to hv@160characters.org and thereafter a distinguished panel of judges (it says here) will draw up a shortlist for publication on 6 June.

Final voting on the short list will be via, you guessed it, text message. ®
