Kami Huyse nominates NY Daily News reporter Derek Rose, who gave a stark accounting of all the gun-jumping at the West Virginia coal mine disaster. That's a pretty good nomination.
If you know me you know I love authenticity, so I consequently love this idea and can't wait to see the final list. I gave my nomination just now to Scott, which isn't a moment so much as it's a person -- I'm nominating Mike Arrington. In addition to rapidly becoming one of the most authoritative spokespersons for web innovation, he has a reputation for direct and simple honesty about what he's doing and interested in (as in this post). It's a long moment, but a good one and it deserves attention.
His agendas aren't hidden and he's not interested in celebrity for its own sake. I've known him for five years and can say this without personal reservation.
If you have a nomination, get it to Scott ASAP; he's going to press tonight.
