Update — Startup questionnaires go out this evening (Monday, May 17th). If you don’t receive one and think that you should have, please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to that effect. The list of MIA nominees below is current as of Monday afternoon. — Bob
Nominations for the Cringely (NOT in Silicon Valley) Startup Tour are officially closed.
The next step is distributing to a designated founder or executive at each nominated company our festive questionnaire.
Despite the hard work of Mary Alyce Cringely and Miss Courtney, we still have more than 100 nominated companies for which no official contact e-mail address yet exists. We have written to all these companies and called all of them but for some reason we don’t yet have the proper information to distribute to them our very enlightening questionnaire.
If you recognize one of these companies listed below or have a friend there, please let them know that unless we can get a proper e-mail address by the end of day Monday, their company will be dropped from the competition, losing its chance to shine on TV.
E-mail addresses can still be submitted to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org until the end of the day Monday. DO NOT submit e-mail addresses in the comments for this column. That space is reserved for clever and taunting remarks, primarily about Miss Courtney’s search for true love.
