A couple of months ago, I announced that Leon Ho, lifehack.org’s founder and now head of Stepcase Limited, our parent company and a Hong Kong-based development house, had been listed as one of BusinessWeek’s Asia’s top 25 young entrepreneurs. BusinessWeek asked readers to vote, and it’s a pleasure to announce that Leon was voted #4.
At the top of the list were Nguyen Minh Tri,who runs a social and educational networking system in Vietnam, and Saloni Malhotra, whose company is pioneering rural outsourcing in India. Third place was Indonesian mobile content developer Ari Sudradjat. Leon was selected for his focus on personal productivity, with special attention paid to lifehack.org.
This is a great honor for Leon and a real recognition for the work that lifehack.org does — both for us the writers who provide the daily tips, advice, and food for thought that keeps a million monthly readers coming back, and for you the readers who give us your feedback, suggestions, and inspiration.
This kind of attention helps lifehack.org keep growing and keep providing the quality of ideas that helps keep our community more productive, more organized, and more balanced. You can help us continue to grow by nominating us for this year’s Bloggies, which are guaranteed not to bring honor, prestige, or wealth — but which can help spread the word about lifehack.org and personal productivity. We’d love to see ourselves nominated for Best Group Blog or Best Tech Blog, and maybe even Best Asian Blog, given the BusinessWeek article. And of course, we wouldn’t complain if people felt strongly enough to nominate us as Weblog of the Year (disclaimer: this actually does come with a cash award… of $20.07).
We thank you for your votes and nominations, but more importantly, for making lifehack.org the site it is. We’re proud to serve you and the rest of the lifehack.org community.
