The award looks like it belongs between two Marvel action figures on the bookshelf of a comic-book fan. Made of plastic, it features a primate lunging triumphantly on a mountain of laptops, bone in hand — a reference to the opening scene of 2001: A Space Odyssey, and (hopefully) a meta reference to Zoolander. This is a Crunchie, the tech industry's most coveted award, and this year: Lyft wants the monkey.
We've been named a finalist for “Best On-Demand Service” in the 8th annual TechCrunch Crunchie Awards. After taking second place last year for “Best Collaborative Consumption Service,” it's exciting to be on the short list in this competitive new field.
We need your vote (and probably your mom's vote, too). The polls close on Tuesday, Jan. 27, so post, email, tweet, shout from the rooftops, and ask everyone you know to cast their virtual ballots.
